wait until it’s closer.  You never know what may happen between now and then.

Unless you have a reason to send them out sooner, or get a discount between now and closer to the wedding, I’d just wait.  Unless you think you’ll have more to do closer to the wedding date and just want to get them over and done with now.  (like if you have more stuff to DIY closer to the date).

Of course, I’ll be doing my sooner to get them over and done with because I typically procrastinate horribly, lol.

My wedding is in November and mine are done…

But – I would make 100% sure that everything in your program is accurate for the way it’s going to be at your wedding (people, officiant, wording, etc.)

I just finished mine, but I’m waiting until about 3 weeks pre-wedding to print and assemble (was thinking something might change between now and then and didn’t want to deal with possible reprinting)

I know exactly what you mean because I was worried about that too… but if something happens that close to the wedding your guests will know about it and will understand why the program doesn’t match up. Don’t stress… use your free time a little at a time to get things done 🙂

I did mine at the begining of July for my September wedding. I figured why wait since I had the time and resources (my parents’ printer) to do them while visiting. I never thought about someone dying but I think your guests would understand if you added a memorial if necessary. We included the parts of the ceremony and their meanings along with names of the bridal party and their roles so short of the ceremony changing from what the priest gave us, I couldn’t see what would change. Besides, if something changes, we can always add an insert  – that’S what they do in theaters so it can’t be so bad.

In the week leading up to my wedding, I remembered this post. As it turned out, the situation I never considered – someone dying in the 10 weeks between when I printed the programs and got married happened. I just needed to come back and add that. In fact, I think I will start a thread on death and weddings because it does not seem so uncommon after all. I feel like I totally jinxed that one with my previous response.
