We’re not doing them. But our wedding ceremony will be immediate family-only, so they already know who everyone is and what’s going on. 🙂

I have been trying to decide this as well. They are nice to have but why spend the extra money on something for somebody  only throw it away?  I still cant decide if I want to even bother with them.

You don’t need them, but I do like to have one when I’m at a wedding.  I like to know who everybody is and it’s another place to honor your parents (by having their names listed).

I’m doing mine on the SUPER CHEAP side.  Leftover cardstock from my invites, printing them two-sided (order of ceremony on one side / wedding party on the other), two per page (cutting them at Staples or Office Depot) and using a corner punch to make them a little prettier.  It will cost under $10 total.

I made programs. I think 10 people took them. It *is* nice to have them as a souvenir personally, so maybe just don’t print up so many?

Programs aren’t needed. I like them because I want to know who the BMs and GMs are. I also like to know the music selections. But I wouldn’t be angry if I didn’t get one as a guest. I usually throw them away; I’ve only saved 3 because I was engaged and wanted to model my programs after theirs. So feel free not to have them!

We didn’t have programs and no one seemed to miss them either.  I cut them because it would be one less thing to stress about/spend money on/waste time on…but that’s just my opinion.

I like programs b/c they give me something to do while waiting for the ceremony to begin. But we didn’t have any, I didn’t want to spend the money on something that would be thrown away. I think for us they would have been nice b/c it was a Jewish wedding and not everyone knows our traditions, but I figured the rabbi could just explain things.
