I am trying to determine whether I should do program fans or regular programs. For those who have already been married ,do guests even really care if there is a program?

i added a poll for you...we didnt do them.

 

after the invites, welcome letter, website, std, menus, table number and seating, we were just papered out...

I'm not doing a program - the reason why? We have a small group (20 people) and I would rather do something nicer for them to keep forever rather than a piece of paper. But really, it's your choice and your wedding.

Thank you for adding the poll. How exactly do I do that?

I don't think they are an absolute must, but I ended up doing them beause we are only having a small group of guests so it woulnd't be a huge expense, plus i know my mom, dad and fi's parents would love to keep them .

 

I did simple brochure style ones from vistaprint. I'll attach a picture. We did really casual, low cost ones because apart from our parents, we assume everyone else will probably throw them out. I know I have from weddings I've been to!

Thank you for sharing your brochure. It looks wonderful. I may try to borrow the idea.

They are totally NOT necessary - but I'm doing them bc I LOVE LOVE LOVE paper products. Plus we will have about 60 ppl there and I want to make sure everyone knows the key players.

I definately don't think programs are necessary. If you're feeling like you don't really want them then I wouldn't do it. Personally, for a program on a wedding day - I normally use them to figure out how much longer until the ceremony is finally over lol (I know, that's horrible to say!!)

 

Having said that I will be making them for my wedding. lol. I would like to introduce everyone, and create a sense of organization (I'm a freak about that stuff!). I'll putting them on fans, so they'll have a multi-purpose. That's my plan for now... who knows, maybe I'll get papered out like Tammy did though.

I voted NO - they are not necessary. I originally thought I would do programs, but like Tammy, I was just totally over DIY projects. We had a small group, and plenty of pre-wedding activities for every body to get aquainted. They are a nice touch if you have the energy, but nobody will miss them - promise!

I would say that they aren't necessary, for the most part. But the benefit of having them is that it allows guests to follow along more easily and to know who is in the bridal party and what their relationship is.

 

Frank and I both have a tendency toward exclusivity with our friends--- meaning, we don't have a large group of friends who all mix together. We have multiple groups of 1-3 people who know each other. So for us to put them all together without having that social background together, we thought the programs would help smooth things over more for everyone...

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
