The Wedding Programs has become an integral part of the wedding to give family and guests a glimpse of what will happen on the special day of the couple. Although there is no book on etiquette that will tell you that a program is a requirement and many countries and cultures have not yet embraced this part of the wedding. It is the initiative of the couple and their planner to provide one for every family that will attend the wedding especially if the couple feels that it is necessary.
A Wedding Program as a Necessity:
There are certain considerations that some couples believe are necessary which is why they provide wedding programs to their guests and families. For instance, there are guests who have different religions or cultures and may not understand what will happen during the ceremony up to the reception. Some couples include a wedding program out of etiquette. They want their guests to be a part of the celebration from start to finish which is why they provide a list of things that will happen, some acknowledgments and other information as needed.
Choosing the Best Wedding Program as Per Your Preference:
There is no single rule on what you can do and put into your Wedding Programs. It can be as simple as an outlined list of events that will happen during the wedding. Some may opt to include their acknowledgments as well as the list of key persons such as those included in the entourage, the sponsors and of course the wedding officiates. As for the appearance of the program, you may want to choose a format and color theme that will follow your motif and overall style of your wedding. So if you are planning to have a medieval-themed wedding, it’s best that your invitations and program have the same design and theme- from the color theme to the lettering. For simple but elegant weddings, whites and beiges are common color themes and these also apply to your invitations and program hand-outs.
