For as long as I have been in business, I have seen more programs than you can imagine. I think the one that really sticks out in my memory and being the most ingenious way to do a program, was my wedding in December.
My client was really into reading and literacy! Her whole theme revolved around reading. It was a newspaper! It explained the ceremony (Greek Orthodox) and traditions that are followed. It contained information on her bridal party and information about her and her husband and how their relationship evolved. Her newspaper is below.
It was so cool, I decided to look into a few other alternative forms of wedding programs. One of the best places to find really neat and unique ideas for weddings is Etsy.
The first I found was By DesignsbyTenisha. She has designed a cootie catcher. I used to play with these things as a kid and it is adorable how she took this idea and adapted it to weddings. On the flaps, it can contain:
Seating of parents and grandparents
Welcome and prayer
Giving of the bride
Exchange of vows
Exchange of rings
Pronouncement of marriage
The next one I found was by AnnaLouAvenue, it’s a great idea. Rolled scroll, ceremony program on Kraft paper. If you are having a rustic feeling wedding, these would work well.
Here is another great one. This is by OneChelleofAMug, it is a personalized wedding fan, with the couples picture on it! Not only do you get to keep yourself cool, but you have all the pertinent information, such as Family, Wedding party, Ceremony, etc. at your finger tips!
These are just some of the highlights of my research, and the different options you have open to you. If I were to put all I have found, you would be reading for weeks! I hope you enjoy these ideas and if so, feel free to give feedback with any other ideas you may have.
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO BELIEVE!
