Wedding Program WordingWedding program wording can seem like a tricky business, but it can be a lot easier than you think! Several wedding program templates exist, and you can simply find one that matches your wedding colors, insert the names of your bridal party and then include a small wedding program thank you message as well. However, if you want to make your program into a memento of your day, you can choose wedding program wording that will capture your heartfelt gratitude for the support you have received. You may also need to include information about the ceremony in your program. For example, a Catholic wedding program usually includes the readings and songs in the order in which the congregation will hear them for those who are unfamiliar with a Catholic Mass. Programs are also very handy if there is a last minute change to the reception details.

Typical wedding program wording includes a list of the bridal party and the names of the bride and groom’s family members. A thank you to everyone in attendance, or a thank you to the parents of the newlyweds is also a standard addition to a wedding program. Wedding program wording can also include a poem, or lyrics to the couple’s favorite song. Wedding guest book alternatives include thanking guests in the program, or asking guests to refrain from confetti or rice.

A great addition to your wedding program is pictures. Your engagement photos, or baby photos or maybe wedding photos from your parents wedding ceremonies will add a personalized touch to the program and turn it into a real keepsake. This can also help you cut down on wedding expenses as you can forgo wedding favors in lieu of a great wedding program.
