We arent. I think they are kinda silly. Why does everyone need a card detailing who is who in the wedding party?!? No one cares that much. Would you EXPECT one at a wedding? If you got one, what would you do with it after? Likely throw it away, so why bother putting money into something that will be tossed aside/used as a coaster/left at the reception hall for you to clean up??

Programs aren’t necessary, so if you want to save the time and money, then just skip them!

I’m not doing programs, just to save the extra money. Our ceremony will likely be less than 15 min, so I dont think its necessary. The wedding party will be announced as we walk in anyway.

I’m not doing programs, but it’s more about saving paper and being eco than the money.  We also have info on our attendants and other people involved in our wedding party on our website, so we do have that info somewhere.

Skip ’em!

It depends on the wedding – sometimes, they ARE necessary. 

In our case, we’re having a Jewish ceremony and maybe 1/10 of the guests are Jewish.  Our programs explain the significance behind the different parts of the ceremony and help the guests understand what is going on and what comes next, since it will be unfamiliar to most of them.

However, if they’re just going to list the wedding party, and pretty much everyone knows who they are, I agree, you can skip it. 

As for their “green” status, we printed them on recycled paper and have a “recycling bin” set up for them to be returned to after the ceremony.
