    Yes, you need one per guest, and it's not like the kits are that expensive : (15 votes)

    No way, not everyone will take them, and you will have a lot leftover : (33 votes)

    Are you placing them on chairs or handing them out?

    I think you’ll be totally fine with 80…so don’t worry! 😉

    hmmm, i like the idea of each guest having their own, however in your case i’m not sure if its worth buying a whole kit for the extras.

    I worry that if they are in a basket each person will grab one, if you hand them out maybe that person can make sure to hand it to a few “couples” that could share one..then everyone else gets each of their own. Either way (handing out or in a basket) i think you’ll be fine!

    I was just thinking of this the other day!! We haven’t decided if we want to do programs or not yet, but I was thinking that guests who were together might like to share. I just hate the thought of wasted paper 🙂

    I think you’ll be ok… most likely “couples” walking in and signing your guestbook will just grab one for the 2 of them to share. I know every wedding my Fiance and i have gone to (when the programs aren’t handed out and in baskets).. i am usually the one to grab one and he just keeps walking past them.. just one example though.

    who knows, you may find you have extra programs even only having 80. I say save $ on buying another kit.

    🙂

    I’m guessing you won’t be able to make the extra up out of just photocopying the basic kit onto cardstock? That’s the first thing I would try to do. I agree that buying a whole new kit is a bit much if you’re only short 15 programs. Unless you have a friend getting married soon who’ll buy the extras off you?

    I agree, you should hand them out or put them in a basket and people who are together will likely take only one.

    15 shouldn’t be that much of a difference. I wouldn’t worry about it but if you think everyone will want one, then I’d do the card stock idea.

    I made one per person, and somehow there still weren’t enough.  My mom was asking for one afterwards, and I didn’t have any to give her.  I wish I would have had more!

    I was going to have the same amount of programs as escort cards…so basically one per couple.

    Hmmm, that’s assuming it’s okay to have one escort (bottle of wine) per couple…

    It’s always better to have more than you think you need. You and other folks may want to keep them as keepsakes.

    We had so many leftovers! Plan on one per every couple….plus a couple extra for you and mom, etc to save
