I haven’t planned on doing programs for our ceremony. There won’t be any attendants and I am walking down the aisle alone. Are they necessary? The ceremony will be very simple, so I don’t feel like I need to supply the guests with an outline.

You can do whatever you want! I vote go for it! One less thing to worry about, right?

I think it is really up to you. I always like reading programs when I am sitting and waiting for the ceremony to start or to figure out who is who. But since you don’t have attendants I don’t think you need to worry about it.

i say, if you dont want to, you dont have to. I have a huge bp…9 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 8 GMs, 2 sets of parents and grandparents. And – GASP! – im not doing programs. I dont care about them and I dont want to spend time or energy on them. I think you should focus on the details that have the most meaning for you and not what is expected by others or traditionall done…

With the absence of the usual large wedding party, you would definitely be fine without them. They are definitely not a requirement! As JennyBryde said, it’s one less thing to stress over.

You absolutely don’t have to.
I’ve never been to a wedding with programs (gasp!). I am, however, using programs in my own wedding. It’s a small ceremony with no attendants and about 30 guests. I’m making programs to acknowledge our deceased grandparents, mention why we are using the music we’re using, and thank everyone for coming and recognizing that many friends and family members couldn’t make the trip. In a way, this wouldn’t be something I’d do for a larger group.
