Are wedding programs really needed?…Seriously! Are they? Our ceremony will be 20-30 minutes long max. And if my partner could get his way, it'd be done in 5. There will be some talking, some vows, the wine box ceremony, kiss, done.
I'm just wondering if I need a program with the wedding party info and all that. Will I miss it during and after the wedding or years down the road?
[related-post your-programs-paper-airplanes]There's no right answer to this question. For some folks, your programs = paper airplanes doomed for the recycle bin. For others, they're an amazing opportunity to crack your guests up.
While there's absolutely no reason you have to do them, there are a few questions to ask yourself:
- Do you want to give guests something to look at while waiting for the ceremony to begin?
- Is it going to be hot, and do you want to give your guests something that doubles as a fan?
- Do you want to explain some back-story on ceremony components your guests might not be familiar with, like the wine-box ceremony?
- Are you making a point to do a big thank-you for your wedding party in other ways?
If you decide you DO want to do programs, man have we got some inspiration for you.
What do you guys think? Are wedding programs worth the effort? What are you doing for yours? Show ‘n' tell, please!
