Simple Wedding Ceremony Programs

If you are not working on your wedding ceremony programs with a stationer, it tends to be a project that falls to the wayside, to be taken care of at the last minute. That's probably because it's also one of the items that leave a lot of brides thinking - do I really need programs at the ceremony?

I understand the thought behind that - some people never even take one, most people leave it behind, etc. I do however, think that it's a good idea to provide some sort of program - especially if your wedding ceremony is a traditional ceremony in a church where some of your guests may not understand what is going on and need some guidance. It also serves as a helpful coordinating resource - a place to give guests information about post-ceremony logistics. For example, directions to the reception venue or transportation and parking information.

That said, if you are not a stationery fanatic, it's one place that you should really think about keeping it simple (for all of the reasons you have for not wanting to use programs at all). I just saw this simple, cute and chic Program Cover Template on Martha Stewart Weddings that is easy to use, but doesn't look like a complete throw-away!

If you use a decent card stock, you could print the ceremony information on the inside of the same sheet, and you wouldn't even need cords to bind the program, just a nice fold.
