You know…I printed enough for everyone to have one, and then for my parents, in laws, etc to have an extra for memory books.  Really, it was too much.  I think we tossed about 40 of them…so sad!  I would say if you are doing one per invite, I would add a buffer of 20 or so.  I saved about 5 of them so I can frame one, put one in our wedding album, etc.

do you guys feel programs are necessary? I havent even begun to think about making them, but we really only have 5 people (including us!) in the wedding party!!

I am making 1 program for each person. I think wedding programs are a must, they serve as a guide for your guests, whithout them your guests may feel lost during the ceremony.

I like the program idea because it ties your theme together and gives a nice keepsake.  I still have the programs from my closest friends’ weddings — I keep them in a photo album with the pictures.  My wedding has an education theme, so we are doing the program like a course syllabus.  We are planning on printing enough for one for each guest plus a few extras.  I’m doing them myself, so cost isn’t really an issue for extra programs.

We personally really NEEDED programs– I’m Orthodox Christian and our wedding service is quite different from Catholic or Protestant weddings, and we wanted everyone to understand what was going on.  That being said- we planned on one for every person, plus a few extras for keepsakes, etc (Sweeney, I’m a "keep-sakey" girl too!), and we had SO MANY left over. Honestly, I was shocked! We ended up mailing a program along with our thank you notes to some relatvies and friends who weren’t able to make it to the wedding but still sent a card or gift– I mean, we had the programs, so why not? It helped those individuals feel a little more like they were at the wedding with us. 🙂

It depends on your situtation if they are necessary or not. Are your guests from all corners of the world, or are they all close friends in your community… my family and friends are kinda "granola" and his family is a bit more "traditional" so yeah we’re doing programs, but mostly for my family so they know whats going on…..
