I read them.  But I also get distracted easily, so having a ton of info in there would be a little too tempting for me.

I’ll skim them.  Rarely read them ever.  Unless there is something that needs to be explained (cultural tradition, etc.) I think you can skip the details.

Yes i do read them so I can see where we are in the ceremony and I like reading who is in the wedding party.

I feel terrible saying this, but I read them b/c I usually get bored during the ceremony.

No. I skim through and put it down and never remember to take it with me.

yeah I read them…but I don’t know…most of the one’s i’ve seen haven’t been as detailed as you are describing…if it were like that I probably would have my head down for a portion of your ceremony…lol

Yes, I sure do!  I created mine!  I love simple and classic looking programs!

My fiance and I are two of those “OMG, must not be late EVER!!!” sorts of people, so I’ve always read the entire program before the ceremony even starts.

We’re having the full Catholic Nuptial Mass, and I’m guessing that 50% of our guests or more are either non-catholic or haven’t been in years…. We will be doing the responses and directives in the program so our guests can follow along. We won’t be writing our vows in there, we won’t have the readings either. Mainly just the key confusing parts along with when to stand, sit, or kneel.

I always read them but I definitely wouldn’t put ANYTHING word for word in them.  Just put the name of the song, the name of the reading, the location of the scripture, etc – no one needs to see all the words on the paper.  They should be listening to them!

We’re putting everything in including a couple of “games” to entertain the kids during our Catholic wedding ceremony – word search and three pictures to color in.

I’ve usually read the programs at other weddings because couples usually put personal things in them and it is nice to read!

I read them b/c like many have said I tend to get board…I went to a wedding where they put a little seek and find and maze on the back for the little kids and I’m not joking during the ceremony I looked at the crowd and about 1/2 of them were doing the puzzles!
