I’m working on my programs (way ahead of time, but I want the bones in place so I can just fill in later) and I’ve come across a small dilemma.
I don’t have a bridal party, so the only people we’ll list are our parents, siblings, 1 grandparent and the officiant (who is a hired individual, not a friend or relative). Normally programs will list the “wedding party” and everyone’s name, but since I don’t have one I’m struggling with what to “title” this section. I briefly though about putting “Family” at the top, but then my officiant isn’t family. Can I list that person separately? Should I skip the heading to that part altogether since it’s on it’s own page? Any thoughts?

@mrsSonthebeach: Honestly, I want to have one only because I’m having fun DIY’ing things… lol

@mrsSonthebeach: +1 my immediate thought as well. OP, saves yourself some time and grief.

Save your DIY spirit for other activities! Trust me, as you get closer to the date… you’ll need the energy.

If you really want the prgoram, you could call it “Important People” or “VIPs” or do two titles “Family” (list everyone but officiant) and halfway down the page, do “Officiant” and list his/her name.

We had no bridal part and no programs, no one missed them and there were so many other things for me to DIY!!
I think you should find some other project that will leave more of an impression!

I say go for the program! I did mine DIY, and it’s a ton of fun; plus mine are doubling as tissue packets (I’m gluing glassine envelopes to the back of each program). Originally we weren’t going to have a wedding party, so I just listed the ceremony (readings, vows, ring exchange, etc), then I put trivia about us (bride and groom) on the rest of it as a fun activity.
