I think I would rather just not have them at all compared to what you described. Your names and date are on the invitation, your officiant will introduce themselves at the start of the ceremony, the bridal party can be introduced by the mc, you will write thank you notes to all your guests anyway.

Then don’t do them. I you’re having a wedding website, usually there are bios of the wedding party, with photos, on the website.

As a frequent wedding guest I’d much rather know the order of the ceremony, than the names of the bridal party, most of which I won’t even be talking to.

DanniBee83:  I think programs in general are a waste of time and money. I have never been to a wedding where the officiant did not tell us what was going on, or where we couldn’t figure it out for ourselves.

I think it is nice to want to acknowledge the wedding party and the officiant, but not necessary as that can also be done at the reception.

You can also post a sign at the entrance to the ceremony venue.

We aren’t doing programs. After being to many weddings and knowing I just pitch it in the trash afterwards, I would rather not spend the money.
