How To Set Up The Wedding Program

...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

A program is fairly easy to create and doesn't have to be expensive or elaborate. An 8 1/2 x 11" piece of paper set up in landscape mode works well. You will need to create 2 pages. One will be the front and back when the sheet is folded and the other will be the inside. On the front, list your names, the date, and location. On the back, some people place a note of thanks to those who helped with the wedding in special ways. Others scan in a picture of the bride and groom, and others leave it blank.

For the inside, set up the page in two columns. On the left side, place the ceremony order. It doesn't have to be detailed. If you aren't sure, keep it simple: seating of the mothers, processional, introduction, vows, exchange of rings, pronouncement, presentation of the couple, recessional.

On the right side, list the participants in the ceremony and their relationship to you and the groom. Start with the pastor, then the parents, then maid of honor - "Susan Jones, sister of the bride" - and on down your list.

If you want to communicate information to your guests, you can do it in the program. For instance, you might say, "Please remain seated until the ushers dismiss you." or "Please join us for the reception at The Bishops House immediately following the ceremony ."
