Not sure how long those other programs were but keep in mind they’ll still be 8.5″ long as a trifold which I think is more than fine. I had a tri-fold and could fit in a lot of info in there. I had the cover, folded out for silhouettes of the bridal party and names of the family, the back had the ceremony with a little info on where to go after, and a thank you note to everyone. Here’s the bridesmaids holding it open, and I can’t find it but I’d seen one or two pictures of men with the program in their suit pocket, in pristine tri-fold condition!

@mrscash: I love your program! Did you DIY the design or did you order it?

Tri fold is fine, I don’t think you need to wrap twine around it. Maybe punch two holes and tie a twine or lace bow? But if they have to wrap twine around, they will have to throw it out,  or on th floor.

I think a trifold is a fine idea for a program just make sure to choose a lighter weight paper because card stock has really ugly creases unless you use a folding machine or run the back of an exacto blade over every crease (ugh time consuming)

FYI ours was normal cardstock and it folded just fine, with no special folding tools or anything. I made sure the folds were very sharp by putting the programs under piles of books to flatten them as much as possible. I’m not very nitpicky so I didn’t notice any weird creases and I don’t think guests will pay attention to something like that.

 

Oh hey here’s that pocket pic!
