@yogaqueen:  What about passing on programs all together? Or if you’re thinking you must have a program, what about one big one that everyone can see?

@yogaqueen:  Oh okay! Nevermind then! I obviously didn’t do programs so I can’t answer your question. ๐Ÿ™  Maybe you could do one per couple if you really wanted to save?

I don’t think you have to worry about this yet. But I’d do one for RSVPd guest.

@yogaqueen:  oh, okay! haha I was thinking, “she’s a little ahead of the game… considering I haven’t even thought about programs yet…”

i’ve thought about programs already, i was actually going to order them last weekend, but Fiance talked me out of it. not because of the numbers game, but because we want to print our music and readings on it, and he’s afraid we’ll change our minds after we’ve already ordered them. ๐Ÿ™‚

for me, i don’t want to wait until after our RSVP’s are back, because that’s just too close to the wedding to work with the designer, purchase, wait for them to get printed and shipped, etc. (this process takes about 3 weeks). my date is 10/12, and i think i’m going to order them in early august. if you want to anticipate, here’s an equation i found online that i think is useful:

(# of out of town guests * 65%) + (# of local guests * 90%) = total # estimated to attend.

I made my programs myself. . . would printing them yourself be an option? Much cheaper! Since our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception are one right after another, we opted to print as many programs for as many guests as we’re anticipating. You don’t want to not have enough. . .
