Designing your own wedding program can be a labor of love which will serve as a lifelong
memento of your wedding day for you and for the special people who shared it with you. It is,
by no means, a requirement, but certainly a lovely addition to the festivities, which adds a
personal touch to your ceremony. If your wedding is typical of most, not all of your guests
and not all of your family members will know the key players in your wedding ceremony and
reception. A printed Wedding Program is a thoughtful way to disseminate that information.
A Program is especially helpful when the ceremony is one with which the guests may not be
Listing the participants in your Program is a way to honor them. They can be mentioned by name along with the role they are playing (e.g., Mary Smith, Matron of Honor). You may also add the relationship of the person to the bride or the groom (e.g., Mary Smith, Matron of Honor, college friend of the bride or John Smith, Best Man, brother of the groom). Guests at your wedding will feel more a part of the process and closer to you two, if they know the participants.

It is entirely up to you how much content you include in your Wedding Program, with size, effort and price being determining factors.
It is very important that you check and recheck your Wedding Program to make certain there are no spelling or grammatical errors and that names are spelling correctly (check nicknames with individuals).
Once that work is done, you will be ready to print copies on your computer or order them from your stationer. A rule of thumb to follow regarding quantity is to have one Program per guest and about twenty extras for keepsakes and for sending to guests who could not attend. Once your printing is done, assign the task of distributing the Wedding Programs to someone trustworthy. A guest hostess ("Program Honor Attendant") is a better choice than ushers who tend to be very busy seating the guests.
Whatever the final product, your Wedding Program will be something both you and your guests will treasure as a reminder of your special day.
