HI Dragonus. I had a blank page in my program too. How about the text of your reading(s) if you’re having them, a poem, or a thank you from you and DH? We used the poem “I Like You” to fill ours. Good luck and have a great wedding!

I agree with your father. I think that a wedding should be a joyous occasion and not a memorial service. Especially since (most likely) it is his parents that you will be memorializing. He may feel awkward about that.  Fill the pages with a meaningful poem.

I do see where he is coming from and I agree with his standpoint on it. As a compromise, you could add a love quote that you both like or song lyrics that are used at the ceremony or for your first dance. Be creative. I saw pictures of a program somewhere where to fill space, the couple added personal info about themselves, such as where they met, what they do for a living, etc.

if you really want it 6 pages long (and not the 4 you reformatted to) maybe you could put in directions and a map to the reception site (if its somewhere else)? Or i saw one program where a bride put in crossword puzzels and sodoku to entertain the kids and adults if they started to get bored. Maybe song lyrics/poems/etc. that are meaningful to the two of you?

Did you have a plan for how to do 6 pages? B/c if you were planning on folded sheets, it has to be a multiple of 4. Six pages works if you’re connecting 3 free-standing sheets somehow, but it does take some thought. Just thought I’d mention…
