I’ve seen a ton of gorgeous and creative programs here on WB. I aspire to DIY a program that’s only half as adorable as the masterpieces I’ve seen the bees put together. But I have NO idea what goes in them. The majority of the wedding ceremonies I have been to have been held in places of worship but our ceremony will not be religious and will be held in a park. We don’t have attendants so there’s no need to list the bridal party. Does anyone have a list of "must-haves" in the program and maybe some recommendations for some unique material to fill our empty programs? Even if your prgram was for a religious ceremony I think just a little inspiration and direction would be great to get me started!

If anyone is doing any readings you could list those, as well as any songs being played at the ceremony. We’re also using ours to explain cultural traditions (very diverse couple and guests! 😉 and write "thank yous." I’ve seen one couple use them to explain their donation-in-lieu of favors, which I guess was easier than making separate cards?

Are you having any readings or a unity candle? The program is there to basically walk the guests through the ceremony. Attendants are usually listed, but instead you might list your parents. You would list who’s officiating your ceremony and if you’re having music, you would also list the musicians.

I also think that a "thank you" for your guess will be cute and maybe you can add a "poem reading" or something like that 😉

I love the "Thank You" section! We’ll definitely incorporate that!

Post # 8
- Wedding: August 2009 - St. Thomas of Villanova Church & the F.U.E.L. House
We’re including the order of our mass, wedding party members, an "in memory" page for deceased family members and some important notes and reminders for our guets…hope to post about this before the wedding, but if I can’t squeeze it in, will definitely do so after the honeymoon!

We’re going to list the songs being played, the readings, the wedding party, the officient. Possibly an in memory page, but not sure how FH feels on this one. We’re also including the lavender in an envelope to throw as we exit the ceremony.
