@missjewels:  I say 90 would probably do.  Some people may not even take a program, and others could easily just share!

I’m doing one per person, but mine are also doubling as fans. Go with however many people you think will be seated

I am going to go against PPs, and say you can go with less than 90.  I made 100 for my 140 person wedding, and had a ton left over.  Not everyone takes a program.  Also, not everyone came to my ceremony part (ugh!); I had a Catholic wedding, so some people chose not to endure my long Catholic gap.  I would think 75 programs might be good for you?

@coffeegal85:  Agreed… making far less than your estimated guest count is advisable, as a LOT of people don’t take a program, couples will usually share one, and as soon as the ceremony is over the programs go straight in the trash.

I invited around ~100 guests and made 50 programs. There were were still about five or so left on the table, and all couples just shared one. Was very glad I spent no more than $2.50 on the paper for them because they were used and appreciated for all of 20 minutes, then garbage.
