After you determine how many programs you will need for your wedding, you will need to take a look at the elements of a great wedding program. This typically includes a general introduction, then the ceremony order, the names of the individuals in the wedding party, and then a closure or special note.
Introduction: The Introduction of a wedding program should include the names of the bride and groom, the date of the wedding ceremony, as well as the location, city, and state.
Ceremony Order: The Ceremony Order should consist of a prelude, seating, readings, vows, and processional. The musicians, song titles, and lyrics should also be presented in the program. Be sure to list all the events that will occur that day in order.
Wedding Party: The Wedding party section of the program should include the names of all participants in the wedding. Use titles, such as Mr. Mrs. and Miss, as well as full names. Try to exclude nicknames while presenting thanks in the wedding program.
Final Section: The Final Section should incorporate a closure or a special note to the guests of the wedding. The hosts of the wedding should also be given special thanks towards the end of the program.
