Hello all! I am split about programs for my ceremony. I am having my ceremony at the same place as my reception, meaning my guests will be watching the ceremony from their reception tables. My ceremony will be very short and laid back! I know that most times programs do not get used and with 200 guests I think they could be a waste of time and money. I was thinking of placing a trifold heavy duty card stock program at each table for guests to pass around before/during the ceremony. This would cut out a lot of the waste while still allowing guests to know what is going on. However, I have never seen this doen before…. What do you guys think? Thanks!!

If you look in the DIY section on the bee, there are instructions for how to create fans with a very short OOS on them. Or you could just use the wolfpack template, which you can get on here. That’s only 1-2 sides long.
Alternatively, how about a blackboard near the entrance with a few quick instructions on on of the sides, which people can read as they come in?

You could do a little designed sheet with the info in a pretty frame. I bet that would be good enough. I am tempted to cut out programs too.

I created our programs. I just used a template in word that made a little book. We brought the digital file to staples and printed them. It cost about 100 bucks for 125 of them. We used nice paper though and the printing was more complex (stapled, etc). I figure people will at least use them as fans.

I also created my own from a template, but just bought a thicker paper and used front and back. It’s more laid back, funny. I can’t wait to hear how everyone likes it. 🙂 The paper was only around $30 for 250 sheets, and I ended up going through a full thing of ink, so probably $80 all together with lots of left over paper. Not bad!

I LOVE programs at weddings. I always want to know who’s who and how he or she is related to the bride and groom, who is doing the readings, who is singing, what the order of the service will be, and if the bride and groom place any messages in their programs.
To give you an idea of how much I love them, I not only often keep the programs from the weddings I attend, but also I had an eight page, professionally printed, ribbon-bound booklet created for my wedding. 🙂
