seems strange.  The point of the program is to introduce the “stars of the show” like when you go to a play.  You wouldn’t list every audience member.  Why don’t you just skip the programs?

Atalanta:  I agree. For 20 guests, you really don’t need a program. I would try to think of another way to honor them.

I agree with skip the program.  Your friends should understand that you just are not having bridesmaids and it isn’t that your feelings about them changed. I have seen a guest book where the bride/groom had made pages for all the guests (mostly guests shared a page with their SO not a page for each individual guest) that had photos of them with the guests for the guest to sign.  Maybe you could do something like that and include on the page a story or something special about the guest.

Maybe skip the program, but get corsages for everyone? This will of course be a little more, but it would be pretty special.

An alternative to corsages would be to do hair flowers – I ended up with about 15 women who have been special to me (closest friends for the past decade plus, MIL, SMIL, SILs) wearing flowers in their hair for our wedding. It was less expensive than corsages (I think the total cost was about $40 for hair flowers, which would have covered two corsages) and it fit the feel of our wedding better. Just another thought 🙂
