I’m not doing a program. I don’t think anyone’s going to miss them.

Our ceremony is only 25 minutes, and is at the same location as the reception. We’re not doing programs either. It seems like a waste.

They are completely unnecessary.

We didn’t do programs. I didn’t want to waste the money or the paper. Our ceremony was short and simple and nobody missed them 🙂 They are totally unnecessary.

Quite specific situation but I did notice and miss that there weren’t programs at one wedding I went to but that was because it was a dual language ceremony, neither language which Darling Husband and I could understand at all. So even though the ceremony wasn’t overly long (though made longer as Everything was said in both languages) and there was no singing, it was still at least 30 mins or so of not understanding anything at all including the personal vows the couple had written each other. The bride was literally snot crying reciting hers and it was so emotional I really wish we could’ve had a programme in English to know what was being said! We weren’t the only guests like this.

For a wedding in English or any of the other languages I speak I don’t mind if there are no programs.

At our wedding we ran out of programs so some people took more than one!!! That was kind of weird but they were really nice 😂

The only reason we did them is because we’re doing a Catholic ceremony and more than half our guests are not Catholic, so we want them to be able to follow along. If we were having a simple civil ceremony, we would not have bothered.

I only use programs to see how many things I have to sit through before the actual vows and when we get to leave for the reception. Totally unnecessary for a short ceremony.

I got several compliments on my programs and I am happy we did them.

We also used our church programme to name the wedding party and one page to honour those of our relatives that had passed away. Of course Mother-In-Law was unhappy that she was not named in the programme. It was also kind of necessary in order to keep it inclusive for (the majority) of guests who wouldn’t understand the (few) parts of the ceremony spoken in Swedish. Our entire programme was in both Swedish and English side by side.

Our ceremony will be about 12 mintues tops. I love paper things, but I’m not going to spend time on those.

We are using wedding programs because we are having a catholic ceremony and we just wanted our guests to follow the hour long ceremony instead of being bored

Most people know what happens in a wedding…they don’t need a play-by-play.  Skip the programs
