We have ours set-up like this:

  1. Front Cover
  2. Thank you message and photo (cuz I wanted an excuse to use an engagement photo)
  3. Important people (wedding party, readers, immediate family)
  4. Crossword Puzzle (to pass the time while people wait)
  5. Ceremony description (ceremony element, who is involved, any pertinant info/explanation)
  6. Back cover (quote from Goodridge v. Masachussets)

I just finished putting ours together. Ours is set up like this:

1. Front Cover/Photo

2. Thank you letter from bride and groom, note about missing those no longer with us

3. Wedding Party

4. Explanation of Pre-Ceremony Traditions

5. Explanation

Our parents are both walking us down the aisle, so I included them in the Wedding Party section.

ETA: I didn’t know the exact order, so I just put bridesmaids and groomsmen in alphabetical order, and identified the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man separately. I also included our Officiant, parents, usher, ring bearer, and flower girl in the Wedding Party page.

I’m not doing traditional programs. Instead, I’ll just be writing pertinent information on a chalkboard.

I’ll keep it simple, listing the names of our Bridal Party and parents, our officiant (who’s FI’s dad so I guess I’ll list him twice!), and the order of ceremony elements (processional, greeting, declaration of intent, reading [title, author and who is reading it], exchange of vows, exchange of rings, pronouncement)
