Create magic with your wedding program by adding a dash of whimsical fun and inventiveness into the wording and design or both. Wedding programs often contain information regarding the order of your ceremony proceedings including readings and musical selections and lists participant basics such as names of the bride and groom, parents, grandparents, the wedding party and dear friends. Ultimately, the sky is the limit when it comes to your wedding program motif, it can be anything you want from fully functional to delightfully decadent.  Read on for some creative wedding program ideas to get you inspired.


Provide breezy comfort from warm weather with fan-shaped wedding programs serving double-duty by providing important information about the ceremony and keeping guests cool. Popular fan styles include Popsicle stick fans or fully-foldable fans, do-it-yourself or special order. Get ready for unexpected tears by printing your wedding program on hankies, for an extra touch tie each one with delicate ribbons in the colors of your wedding. Enhance your outdoor wedding program by attaching sample-size packets of sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher rating. Surprise your guests with a little something-something by slipping inside lottery tickets or gluing gift certificates for nominal amounts to popular coffee shops or ice cream parlors onto the backside of your program.

Story of Us

Share your story with the world; include anecdotes of all of your firsts as a couple including how you first met, your first kiss and the events that lead up to the proposal. Include pictures of everyone in the bridal party, use current photographs or make it amusing by using baby pics or pictures from high school. The artistically inclined might want to create a mini graphic novel or comic book documenting the dynamic exploits that lead to the events of your wedding day. Create a fun or romantic movie poster for the wedding program cover starring the wedding couple.

Timeless Wonders

Create a high-end look by presenting a wedding program bound in leather with handmade paper and printed in silver calligraphy or a beautiful antique script. Add cute embellishments such as satin ribbons, silk-tied bows, tiny bells, decorative sea shells, silk butterflies, shiny rhinestones, fun stickers, lace hearts, Dior bows, tiny charms, adorable buttons, crystals, pearls or pressed wildflowers. Crafty-types will want to get their scrapbooking scissors ready to snip fanciful creations made from a fantastic array of specialty papers including metallic luster, printed linen, vellum, translucent, flocked or acid-free card stock.

Wedding programs help establish the atmosphere of your ceremony and communicate details regarding events of the day. Take care in choosing a look for your program that best reflects the theme of the wedding or your interests as a couple.
