As a little girl, you may have dreamt of your wedding as if it were going to be a fairytale that worked itself out. As an engaged woman, you have likely come to realize that planning nuptials can be stressful. Not only do you have to make big decisions about venue, caterers and photographers, but you also have to mind the little details. These little details can include what information you want to include in your programs.
Here at Shutterfly, we want to help you make your big day extra special. That’s why we have an entire collection of wedding stationery for you to choose from. This allows you to focus on the details that matter to you. For example, if you want all of your guests to know exactly what is going on during your big day, you can print out the entire schedule of events in your brown wedding programs.
What type of information is a must-have for your guests on the wedding day? You might want to mention the time and location of the reception. Sure, you already spelled out the details on the wedding invitation, but it’s okay to repeat it. Your cousin who forgot her invitation 1,300 miles away on her kitchen counter will be grateful for the repeated information.
To better help guests know what’s going on, you can layout the ceremony. Common elements of a marriage service include the processional, the invocation, scripture readings, the exchange of rings, hymns, prayers, blessings and the recessional. Even if you’re planning on having a nontraditional ceremony, you can personalize the brown wedding programs to meet your needs.
You can also use the wedding program as a place to introduce your bridesmaids, groomsmen and close family members. Is the wedding going to be the first time your extended family and the extended family of your fiancé have met? If so, having a few introductions in the program may encourage your great aunt to mingle with your parents-in-law because she won’t be afraid to mess up their names.
