How to Format Your Wedding Program

A wedding program is not essential for all weddings, but for couples that want one, it may be difficult to find information on formatting the program correctly. Here are some tips that will help you format your wedding program effectively and with style.

Not sure how to format your wedding program? You’re not alone. There are many couples who are unsure of how to format their wedding program correctly, and finding information on wedding program etiquette can be difficult. If you’re struggling with proper formatting for your wedding program, these tips can help.

Classy Covers

The old saying may tell you that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but most people do, so when deciding on how to format your wedding program, it is important to create a classy and attractive cover. Monogrammed covers are extremely popular because they are simple, elegant, and inexpensive. However, if you want to put more information on the cover and don’t mind the extra expense, stick to the main details – the couple’s name, wedding location, a photo, and maybe a couple of details that fall in line with your overall wedding theme.

Inside Cover

The inside cover is where most of the information about your wedding should be found. To appropriately format your wedding program, make sure that you include the important events of the day, in order. A few options can include:

Processional music

Officiate greeting

Special readings

Vow exchange

Ring exchange

Candle lighting, special song, communion, prayer, or any other special/religious event

Marriage pronouncement

Recessional music

Wedding Party

Often, the bride and groom’s family and friends are still strangers. Because of this, the next page of your wedding program should include the important members of your wedding party. Be sure to include the person marrying you, parents of the bride and groom, maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and any other special family members you want recognized, like grandparents or step-parents. However, while deciding how to format your wedding program, it is important to remember that you only have limited space to work with, so stick to only the most important people involved with your wedding.
