Aug 17, 2007
The wedding date is fast approaching and the big things have already been taken care of. However, it is now coming to crunch time and there are still lots of things to take care of. One very important detail to planning your own wedding is making sure there is a wedding program. If you are planning on having your wedding program printed for you then there is nothing to worry about. However, most people make their own wedding programs. This is an important part of the wedding and will help everything run smoothly and efficiently.

This article will help with some the steps for the person that is going to make a "do it yourself wedding program". By following the steps in this article and using it as a guide in creating your own wedding program you will be well on your way to having this task completed and a beautiful wedding program.

Typically there are three main parts to the wedding program and it is helpful to plan these out first. You can even compile the information for each section a little at a time to make it easier. Do not get overwhelmed with everything there is to do instead just start working on what you already know.

Wedding Program Part 1 Introduction
The first section of a traditional wedding program is the introduction. This gives you a chance to give some over view type of information to the guest. Some of the things you will want to include are:

Names of the couple

Wedding date

Time and place of the service.

Wedding Programs Part 2 Event or Ceremony Order
In this part you can include lots of useful information about the ceremony itself. IF you have special poems, music or other significant parts of the ceremony that you want your guests to know about then this is the place to include them.

Greetings

Poetry

Reading

Exchange of vows

Explanations of special religious rituals (such as the ring ceremony, unity candle ceremony, and pronouncement of marriage)

Titles of the ceremony music to be played (including the names of the musicians, soloists, or readers)

Wedding Programs Part 3 Acknowledgement or Wedding Party
This is a great place to put in your closing remarks. You will want to be sure to include a thank you note to several people that were in the ceremony/

Names of the members of the bridal party

Name of the priest or officiate who will perform the ceremony

Memorials, tributes or homage's to someone who has passed away

Thank-you notes and dedications to the parents and to people who gave support to the couple (and to the wedding)

The couple's special message to their wedding guests

Directions to the reception

Typically once the wedding program is done it can then be sent of to the printer or you can choose to do it on your own. With most desktop computers today with great printers a person can easily print very large numbers of documents easily. No matter what you choose the wedding program will come out perfect.
