Wedding programs are a classic part of the wedding stationery ensemble. Think of them as a reference page with information your guests may want to revisit on the wedding day. In this month’s blog we discuss what information should be included in your wedding programs.

Traditional Details

The wedding details that are most traditionally displayed in a program include your names, the ceremony location, and an overview of the ceremony. Many couples also decide to include the names of those in their wedding party, the officiant, and immediate family members.

Non-Traditional Details

Ultimately there aren’t any rules for what can and cannot be featured in your wedding program. In fact some couples take it as an opportunity to explain some cultural traditions they may be observing, a story of how they met, or a timeline of the reception.

Final Thoughts

When it’s time to purchase wedding stationery consider purchasing programs to match in order to achieve a more cohesive look on the big day. Wedding programs are typically sent out to the guest list within a month or two of the big day, but they can also be handed out in person just before the ceremony begins.
