3 Things That Should Be in Your Wedding Program
While it is easy to get caught up in the design of your wedding programs
, the information it offers is actually more important than the color or design it is printed in. Whether you choose our monogrammed traditional, or our eggplant wedding programs to help guide guests through your special day, you should always be conscious of what you want to put on the program and whether it may change on the day of the wedding. It is important for guests to know what to expect so that they do not miss out on any special events. To ensure you don’t fail to include something vital, consider the five most important items to include on your wedding program.
Wedding programs are often one of the only pieces of paper people will keep. This is because it is a concise record of the entire celebration, including who officiated, the order of events and any special occurrences that may be unique to the wedding. Taking the time to choose a great photo and quote for the front of the program is worth it.
2. Location Information
You will want to remember the exact location you were married, and have a record that you can pass down to your children and posterity. This includes the date, time, location of the ceremony and your names. You can ultimately choose to put this information wherever you please, but the traditional spots include the front cover beneath photos or the inside front cover above the order of events. You can customize the design of the entire program to emphasize this information if it is important to you.
The entire purpose of a program is to let people know what is happening and when. Include this information in your program, including the following:
- Commencement of the ceremony
- Cocktail hour
- Cutting of the Cake
Personalize the program to include what means the most to you.

"Wanting a program that looked like it was bordered in gold, I called WPD and a staffer went through all the designs and sent me many samples to choose from. I ended up selecting a color that was not on the custom color card, but was used in one of their designs. It come out exactly how I wanted it to. Design wise, a staffer took the time to take this design and give me other design choices- one of which I loved. I made numerous changes along the way and he responded immediately. Couldn't have had a better experience."
