1 per person.  I’ve been to 4 weddings in the past 5 weeks and at every single one, my Fiance and I each took a program.

I was just reading about this on another website. Most people said that they printed enough for 50-75% of their guests and still had a few leftovers. I think that I will probably follow the 75% guideline.

I would thing one per couple would be fine – maybe then add a few extras just to be sure you’re fine. I think the 75% guideline sounds great!

I read somewhere – can’t remember where – to print 2/3 of the number of your total guests. This makes sense because many couples will just take one but there will be some people who take one each. I have heard that one per person is just way too many.

I thought I’d do 20% more than the number of invitations I get.

Save money here-1 per couple and tell your ushers to give 1 per couple.

One per couple. You should order as many programs as you did invitations.

I think somewhere between 65-75% of the adult guests. I don’t think too many guys are all that interested in programs. We went to 8+ weddings this year and only took 1 program as a couple, except for a few where the ushers made sure each person took one.
