following. i’m undecided. i don’t think our ceremony will be as quick as yours, but there will be readings…i think programs often will list/source the readings. i was also thinking about including the names of our family members (no wedding party) and the officiant….don’t they usually list those involved with the wedding? 

if you don’t want to have paper programs, you can just write everything on a chalkboard at the start of the aisle.

You don’t need them. It is a waste of paper that will blow away in the breeze. If not everyone knows your bridal party you can introduce them at the reception.

They aren’t necessary, especially if it’s a non-religious ceremony.  The chalkboard idea is pretty nice, if it fits with your theme!

viklovez:  They are certainly not necessary but for outdoor weddings it is sometimes super hot and it is nice to be able to use the program to fan yourself. HAHA. Seriously they were life savers at two weddings that I have been too! I also, personally like to know the little details such as who are your bridesmaids and groomsmen etc.
