How to Design an Awesome Wedding ProgramSure, a lot of wedding planners will tell you a wedding program is not necessary, but we believe there are certain ceremonies that warrant a well designed program.  We'll work with you and side by side, teach you how to design an awesome wedding program.

How to Design an Awesome Wedding Program

For example, if you are having a traditional, long, or large wedding a wedding program is simply a courteous way of managing your guests expectations. In our experience, here are the essentials for making your wedding program an amazing souvenir both for you and your guests.

How to Design an Awesome Wedding Program Cover

Some couples are going to prefer a simple, clean design, while others will opt for an elaborate design. Remember, this is your day and everything goes! In general, the only information on the cover is the couple’s name and the date of the ceremony.

Some couples also include the location and increasingly, a picture of the couple. Finally, the cover is also an opportunity to reflect the theme of your wedding. For instance, if you have a beach theme, perhaps a seashell would personalize your program a bit.

How to Design an Awesome Wedding Program Inside Cover

Most contemporary wedding programs are minimal and sleek, so often you will find a simple set of initials or monogram on the inside cover. Aside from that, the inside of the cover is usually reserved for all the wedding day details.

This is where most brides include the times, dates, locations, and names - and be certain to include the following:

  • The Officiate's Greeting
  • Ring Ceremony- Processional Music
  • Prayers
  • Exchanging of Vows
  • Special Readings
  • Communion, Lighting of the Unity Candle, or Special Song
  • Pronouncement of Marriage
  • Recessional Music

Finally, Design Your Wedding Party Page

It’s all too common; two families come together for a wedding and many people haven’t ever met each other before. You can break the ice by including a list of the bridal party and their relation to the groom and bride. It is also an awesome way to say “thanks!” to everyone you chose to be part of your special day.

Officiate: Pastor James Lucas Parents of the Bride: Amy and Peter Larson Parents of the Groom: Jim and Pam Peters Maid of Honor: Sara James Best Man: Todd Mann Bridesmaids: Karen Fagestrom, Danyelle Knightley Groomsmen: Jim Robertson, Ken Nann

Are you including your grandparents or step parents? If so, this is the place to make note of their contribution.

Finally, it’s in good taste to include a sentence thanking everyone who participated in your special day.

Remember - in the end, you can include as much or as little information as you want. It’s your day, and the choice is entirely yours.
