I spent SO much time and money on programs.   I don’t think half the people looked at them.  The most recent two weddings I went to didn’t even have them.  I think nobody will notice.  You are your own worst critic!

@LucyLaLa:  I vote (1)

If it makes you feel any better: There are two different fonts on our invites. One more Bold typical printed letters and the other is more “hand written” looking.

I accidently chose the wrong “hand written” looking font for my RSVP cards, so they don’t match 100%.. I thought about ordering new RSVP’s but, when I asked FI he was like “WTF lol, no way – no one willl notice, and if they do THEY WON’T CARE! lol”

It kinda bugs me, but I’m so over it.. Its not worth spending another $25 on little cards people are going to be sending back to me anyways, just because I screwed up in selecting one of the fonts.

ETA: Its not like in 2 months people will say “Hey, do you remember how stupid the programs looked at LucyLala’s wedding” I think generally people care about only a few things at weddings, and the programs isn’t one of them.

@LucyLaLa:  For $20, just get them reprinted on the paper you like, then be happy with them and move on.  Sometimes a little mental sanity is worth $20, even if it won’t make a difference to anyone else.

I had a typo on mine, being instead of begin and it bothered me! I think at that point in planning I was frazzled, so DH told me to reprint them. The money was nothing compared to making me feel better about them, I’m glad I did even if people don’t care about the programs as much as me lol.

@LucyLaLa:  Programs get a lot of attention out of me for two things:

1.  If it is hot…I will use that thing as a fan.

2.  If the wedding is hitting over the 45 minute mark, I’ll look through it to see how much longer I gotta sit in the pew that’s currently biting me in the ass.

@LucyLaLa:  The church coordinator was picking my programs off the pews and throwing them in the trash after the wedding, which is exactly why I made mine with simple stuff.

Nobody keeps them except grandma and mom. I’d keep them the way they are.

Don’t worry about them.  No one looks at programs anyway, unless the ceremony is really long and they’re trying to be stay entertained by reading it!
