If I actually end up doing them, I plan to have my programs already placed in chairs (hopefully to avoid any bottle-necking of guests at the entry way).

My wedding planner just handed them to people as they walked in.  Super casual.  It wasn’t even something we had planned or talked about.  As a guest, I’d be fine to pick it up myself – or to find it in my chair.

I think we may have a box with them by the church entrance or a family friend pass them out to people as they enter the church. The ushers may also pass them out too as they escort guests. we’ll see! whatever works i guess.

We are having our planner place them on the chairs for the guests.  Of course we are having a very small ceremony so it’s not a big job to do that. 

I’ve heard and seen ushers typically hand out the programs.

Good question! I haven’t yet figured out logistics like this.

If you don’t have someone to pass them out, though, I would think you are fine to leave them for guests to pick up. In general, people expect programs at weddings. I’ve also seen them displayed next to the guestbook so people do both at once.

I think we’re going to have some of the groomsmen play the role of ushers, and have them hand guests prgrams as they seat them.  I also purchased a nice basket to put them in at the front of the church.

We have two Hostesses, so they will be handing out the programs and pointing out next available seats to the guests.

We are going to have a table and they will be in baskets – if someone needs one and forgot to take one, then the DOC will pass them out.  Because the guests have to stop at the table anyway to get something else needed for the ceremony, if they want one then they’ll take one.

We placed one on each seat, since it was more convenient and ensured everyone looked at it. Here they are in action 🙂

We have pews in the church we’re having ours in so we’re having our usherette passing them out at the door as our 2 ushers seat the guests/vip’s.

We are either going to have our planner hand them to our guests, or we will have them already in the guests seats.
