Wedding Program Ideas

By: Ellen Gentry

The bride and groom want the marriage ceremony to go without a single flaw. From the seating of the guests until the final walk down the aisle as a married couple, the entire process is orchestrated and planned for months. Not everyone can be a part of the ceremony itself but with a wedding program, everyone can have a memento of the happy day. Wedding program ideas are abundant on the Internet and can be pages long.

Wedding program ideas found on the internet can give you an idea of how you want your ceremony to go. Think of it as a guideline to help you in seeing how the progression of the ceremony will go. The program design and detail is entirely up to you. It can list everything and everyone involved in the wedding or it can just give a time line of events that will occur. Wedding programs can also give directions to the reception site if it is located away from the wedding chapel or location.

Common wedding program ideas list out the beginning music when the guests are seated and then progress through the different stages of the wedding.

Many couples pay tribute to the family and friends who helped with the wedding. Additional sections of the wedding program could list the musicians as well as any special moments in the ceremony such as lighting the Unity candle, a sand ceremony or hand written vows between the bride and groom.

If you are having a theme wedding such as a medieval wedding ceremony, then it is not uncommon to have a medieval wedding invitation and matching program. A knight and his damsel gracing the covers could be quite romantic. If going back in time a few centuries is not your idea of a fantasy wedding, there are a number of software programs on the market today that can be used at home to create the invitation, program, and thank you cards. These are fairly simple to use and often utilize a template.

Wedding program ideas abound on the Internet. When opting to make your own, and looking for free clip art, be careful of the site. Many websites say that their product is free but in reality they download spyware and adware to your computer. Wedding professionals will not be offended if you decide to create your own invitation and program and may even have great suggestions on websites or software programs to help you with this task.

Time can be a problem when it comes to weddings. There is so much to do, with such little time that it can seem overwhelming. If you find yourself unable to design and print wedding programs yourself, many businesses will print them along with the invitations. These timeless memento's will serve as a reminder of that special day to all those close to you.
