I’m having 100-175 people at our ceremony (RSVP’s still coming in) and I’m not doing a program.  I’m writing the program on 2 antique doors that I painted chalkboard on.

I had 50 people at me wedding in June and I didn’t have programs.  I felt like it was another expense that wasn’t necessary.  With a wedding that small I didn’t want to look like I was trying too hard.  Plus I like to think people would keep the invites I sent out after I spent all that money on them.  But I know that programs are the kind of stationary that get thrown out right on site.  Its a waste to spend money on something thats purpose lasts 10 minutes.

I don’t really get the point of programs. I’ve never been to a wedding that had programs and I’ve always been able to be in the right place at the right time and never been confused about the wedding proceedings.

I don’t think any wedding really needs programs. We did them just because my mom wanted us to and they do make a nice keepsake. I can see if it’s a religious ceremony and not everyone knows what it going on then they’re nice to have, but they’re really never a must have.

I’m not doing programs, the ceremony won’t be very long or at all confusing, also the number of people there won’t be huge. If I thought people would be really confused about who everyone was, I guess that would be relevant? But none of my family or his really want to be formally introduced/seated, and we have no bridal party, so I’m not even sure what would be in our programs if we did them!
