Are Wedding Programs Required? – Ask Emmaline

Hello, loves! If you’re planning your wedding ceremony, this is a must-read post. And, if you’re not planning your ceremony yet, this is a must-bookmark post. (Hit Ctrl + D to save it for later or Pin on Pinterest!) We’re answering one of the most commonly asked ceremony questions: are wedding programs required and are they a good idea? That’s what bride-to-be, Lindsay, wanted to know when she asked us:

“Dear Emmaline, My wedding is in February and I’m planning my ceremony. Do I really need ceremony programs? Will guests even notice if I skip them altogether? I’m on a budget, so I want to make sure I’m spending money wisely. Thanks for your help!”

Great question, Lindsay! The answer to this question depends on what’s right for your specific event, but we’re here to help! Read on for the answer to Lindsay’s question, see our list of pros and cons, and get inspired with handmade wedding programs (plus one clever alternative)…

50 Beautiful First Christmas (Engaged/Married) Ornaments on Etsy

Hi, loves! Happy Monday! Emma here and I am *definitely* getting in the holiday spirit. I swore I would wait to listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving, but I lied. I have snuck in a few tracks from my my favorite album and I secretly loved it. Plus, I’ve been getting those mailers to my house chock-full of holiday decorating ideas (I’m looking at you, Bed Bath & Beyond) so naturally I flip through them and sip on my coffee and dream of the holidays. Anyways, we’re kicking off this beautiful Monday with a round-up of first Christmas ornaments — all handmade from Etsy! — that you can add to your gift lists. I’ve attended many weddings this year and I was looking to give ornaments to newlyweds. I did some searching and I was pretty impressed with what I found, so I’m sharing this HUGE round-up with you! So, go ahead and grab some coffee, put on some wool socks (I’ve been rocking ’em exclusively since the temps finally dropped), and get ready to deck the halls! It’s a little early, but it is actually just in time to order and have everything personalized + shipped in time for the holidays. P.S. You might want to Share on Facebook or Pin on Pinterest for later! Enjoy!
