I made mine since some guests were from foreign countries and I thought it might be nice for them to follow along, however if your ceremony is simple or if all guests are of a similar religious (if your ceremony is religious) background then you likely don’t need them. They don’t have to cost a lot either, Mine were about $100 for 100.

I made mine and I just used the extra paper from when I bought the paper for the invitations. They were a little tie consuming with cutting and hole punching, but they were super cheap to make.

I didn’t have programs and I don’t think anyone noticed. If they did, I don’t think they cared.

We just went to a ceremony with no programs.  It was totally fine.

I’d be totally fine going to a ceremony without programs. I really love reading them, but I think I’m kind of weird 😉 I’m sure most guests won’t notice.

I didn’t have programs, but then I also didn’t have any readings or songs or anything. I think if you have anything in addition to the vows, it can be nice to identify the friend doing the reading and what the reading is (I always want to know). But you could just do a few and let people share. I think there usually are a lot left lying around at the end.

@courtney.castle2304:  I’m not doing any.  My beach ceremony is 15-20 minutes long so kinda silly to have a program for that imo.

I think you can skip the programs, then. But you might put a card on display somewhere (near the guest book, perhaps?) that says what the songs are and who’s singing them.

No programs for us. I personally don’t see the point. Ninety percent of our guest list is close family…
