Why Use A Wedding Program?

Aug 17, 2007
A wedding ceremony marks the special occasion of a man and woman uniting their lives together. What a wonderful event in which friends and family gather to celebrate this magical union! There are many traditions associated with weddings. It takes carefully planning to include the right amount of tradition and fun.

A wedding program can be a very important part of the ceremony. This article will look at a few of the reasons behind this important piece of paper.

Includes Guests
A wedding program is a great way to include guests in the wedding. Especially if you are having a formal or classic church wedding you will want to include a wedding program so that people can know what is happening. Often if you are having a traditional wedding in a church or place of worship it can be common that some of the guests will not be familiar with the particular traditions of the church or place of worship. For example I once had the wonderful opportunity to go to good friend's wedding who had a traditional Indian wedding ceremony. I honestly had no idea what was going on at the wedding.

So by giving a wedding program you can give information on the ceremony and traditions that you have in your wedding. This allows guests to feel comfortable and included in the ceremony.

You can often give little clues within the ceremony on what you expect from the guests. They will then know when to stand, sit, or kneel for example. This can be a huge help to the guests and again make them feel included.

Personalizes the Wedding
The wedding program is a great way to personalize the experience for your guests. You can include clipart and information that is about you and your wedding party. The look and feel of the program will hopefully carry you own style. This will help to personalize a classic wedding and help everyone to enjoy the occasion.

Informs Guests
If the wedding is a very large event many of the guests might not know every individual in the wedding party. By including information like names and even a little background information on the ceremony you can keep your guests informed which they will really appreciate. It is nice to know that your Bridesmaid is your best friend or a sister for example.

Give Direction to Guests
As spoken of briefly above a wedding program can be a great way to communicate directions to your guests. It can not only provide information like what actions they should take during the ceremony it can help them find their way to the reception and know where to put their wedding gift. This kind of information helps the guests and the overall ceremony run smoothly.

A wedding program is a very important piece of the wedding. It is not an absolute and it can be left out if you are having a very small wedding or civil ceremony. For everyone else though a program can provide all of the information they need to feel comfortable.
