    This is something I REALLY want to do, but not sure if it’s worth the time/cost.  We’re having a very basic ceremony anyway, so our guests won’t be confused if they don’t have one.

    Honestly, I love programs. I always read through every word at every wedding I go to! That’s probably just because I’m a huge reader, and if anyone puts anything in front of me with words, I will be reading it.

    Anyways, I think that if you do skip them, it wouldn’t be a huge deal…most people probably wouldn’t miss them! 

    Did you see this post by Miss Spaniel? I thought it was really helpful!

    I’m not doing programs. We’re having a super laid back wedding and I just don’t see the point.

    I was on the fence until I went to a wedding this weekend without programs. A lot of people were looking for them and I was even a little taken back that there were no programs. I guess in our family circle the have become pretty regular.

    Our event was very laid back but it was a DIY I really wanted to do because it was a big part of my inspiration for the entire event.  

    In general, I don’t really think they’re super important if you have a good MC/DJ.

    I think they are really a nice idea if you are having a longer religious ceremony or a number of different activities/speakers. It can do a lot to inform people who everyone is, and what the expectations are.

    If your ceremony is simple and straightforward, though, I think they are unnecessary.

    We had programs, and everyone loved them but I don’t know how many people actually read them.  And they took up a lot of time!  But I was proud of them in the end.

    I originally wanted to do programs, but ran out of time and motivation in the weeks leading up to the wedding. And to be honest, not a single person noticed we didn’t have them – honestly, I think it added to our ceremony that we didn’t have them. It made our ceremony more of a surprise to everyone. We had a very non-traditional ceremony, so in the end I think it worked out perfectly.

    as a guest i love programs – something to read while waiting because some brides can be very late plus they make excellent fans for weddings in the summer
