Hi, lovelies! Today we’re talking about wedding programs with our latest Ask Emmaline question from bride-to-be, Cameron: do you need a wedding program for each guest? We’ll talk about the answer and how to make DIY wedding program fans for your guests. But first, Cameron writes,
“Dear Emmaline, I’m inviting over 150 guests to my wedding and planning on doing programs. My question is, do I need to have one wedding program per guest? Or one per family? Do you have any tips on cutting costs? Thanks!”
Hi, Cameron! Great question! Wedding programs are a great way to inform your guests about your bridal party, who’s who in your family, and ceremony order of events (including songs, readings, etc.) But when you add up all the costs of other wedding paper goods (i.e. save the dates, invitations, place cards or escort cards, etc.) you may be wanting to cut costs by providing just a stack of wedding programs at your ceremony. However, proper etiquette dictates that yes, you need a wedding program for each guest. It’s a good idea to print one for each guest, just as you would with place cards or favor tags.
One way to cut costs is to make your own! DIY wedding program fans are easy to make thanks to Vine Wedding, who designs the most beautiful printable wedding program templates that are easy to edit, print, and turn into ceremony fans for guests. Check it out:
