i plan on having my wedding ceremony at the same venue as the reception. it is also going to be a very simple, civil ceremony. I personally don’t see the need to make programs. Especially if people are onyl going to throw them away 20 min later. but i’ve noticed that pretty much everyone is using them for their wedding.
any thoughts or suggestions?

Honestly, I don’t think so. I was at a wedding recently, and they were very pretty, but they seemed completely unnecessary. I don’t see the need to hand everyone a piece of paper that lists:
I’m pretty sure everyone knows the basic order of a wedding ceremony.
On a side note, I personally wouldn’t want people russling papers or reading during the wedding ceremony. That would be distracting. haha.

I don’t see the need for programs. We’re not having them.

They’re only necessary when you’re (1) having a long religious ceremony (45 min+) or (2) having lots of element that would be foreign to your guests. Otherwise, I’d say no!

I don’t think you need them. We had them because we had a semi religious ceremony. We had a couple of readings to list and a large-ish bridal party so I wanted people to be able to put a name to their faces. But honestly the programs were the thing I had the most problems making so I would say to anyone considering not doing them, don’t. It’s not worth the stress

I wasn’t going to do any. Until I did the math and realized that I would have plenty of cardstock left over from the DIY invitations. So i whipped together a cute/funny program that I will use the left over cardstock for.
But I dont think they are necessary.

I don’t see the point in them either, we’re not having any.

No. I asked this very same question and then started to think about it and in reality unless you are having unique things added to your ceremony they are all pretty straight forward.
We didn’t have them and no body seemed to care.
