I’m making a program for us. It’s not totally necessary, but our ceremony is in a church. I thought it would be nice for the family members that don’t know all our attendants to see their names (and how they know us) and also see what readings we chose.

I’m making them with InDesign.

My wedding sounds similar to yours. I would not notice if there is no program. Actually, I’ve never attended a wedding with a program. The main reasons for using one would be to identify attendants or include acknowledgements/ explanations ("The lillies are in honor of Grandma Jean…"). They can be really neat and be a nice take-home for your guests, but they aren’t necessary. 

I am considering including note cards to provide the text of our readings, as I want people to be able to follow along or reference it later, but I haven’t decided yet.

I’m making programs. Since I have a background in theater, we’re going to make them look like playbills. Basically we want to be able to let people know about the downtown between the ceremony and the reception (we’re flipping the space) and we want to thank all the people who have helped us.

I made them b/c it was a religious ceremony and a lot of our guests were not part of that faith. This way the could follow along and see wherer we were at in the ceremony and when it would be over 🙂 . But if you have a simple short ceremony, its probably fine to do without.

This same question has been on my mind for a while, and I think I’m going to skip them.  We are going to have a very short civil ceremony, so I’m not worried about people not being able to follow along.  It will be one less thing for me to design, print, buy a basket for, and set up on the day of the wedding.

If you do decide to make them, you probably wouldn’t need to make one per person.  Most couples will be happy to share.
