What to include in your wedding Program

Including a wedding program for your guests is a thoughtful detail that helps guests follow along with your ceremony, especially if there are traditions that may not be so familiar. Whether they are curious as to the name of your wedding song, or the name of your maid of honor, a wedding program will let your guests feel more engaged with the ceremony. It’s also a great way to extend your thanks to those who made this day possible and is a great keepsake for those guests who love weddings!

What to include in your Wedding Program

Not sure what to include in your program? No worries, we’ve listed some suggested items you may want to include:

  • Choose a Wedding Program design to coordinate with your wedding stationery. Be sure to start the program with the Bride and Grooms Names (perhaps using a monogram from your invitations), wedding date and city, state (optional)
  • List the order of events of the ceremony. Remember to include the Officiates name, Musical selections song name/singer (you may also choose to include lyrics if meaningful to you), Readings and the names of those the readers. For example:

    - Processional – Wedding March by Wagner

    - The Officiate’s Greeting – Mike Smith, friend of bride and groom

    - Solo by Sara Knight – You light up my life

    - Exchanging of Vows & Ring Ceremony

    - Pronouncement of Marriage

    - Recessional Music – March Triumphant - Sassmannshausen

  • For those who have a religious wedding ceremony, it would be helpful to include a brief explanation of any traditions, rituals, and ethnic customs that will be occurring during the ceremony so that your guests will be able to be in the know.
  • A list of the members of your wedding entourage. This would include the Mothers and Fathers of the Bride and Groom, Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids, Best Man and Groomsmen, Ringer bearers and Flower girls.
  • Thank you note to parents, guests and any special intentions or memorials for those who are not able to be present.

Again, this is your day so feel free to go a step further and personalize your wedding ceremony programs a little more by adding a photo or special quote. If information gets to be too much for the front, we do offer backside printing our programs as well. The day of your ceremony, you may either place them at each guests seat or have a designated friend or family member be in charge of greeting and handing the programs to the guests. We recommend checking out our collection of wedding programs to get an idea of different layout options.
