How to make wedding programs at the last minute

make wedding programs at the last minute

It's interesting:
"I'd like to talk about Paul's greatest achievement, which happened today, and that was keeping his suit jacket on throughout the ceremony and resisting what must have been an intense desire to turn up in shorts today. But despite the heat and discomfort, it’s been well worth the effort, for amongst other things, the wet patch down the length of his left leg can be passed off as sweat."

Wedding programs are an important part of wedding ceremonies. If the couple forgets to order wedding programs, they can create their own at the last minute using a free wedding program template. There are many different websites that offer these for free. A wedding program states the names of the bride and groom as well as all members in the wedding party. It also states the order of the ceremony and several other pieces of information.


    • 1

      Purchase decorative paper. Most office supply stores sell numerous types and styles of decorative paper. Choose one that is relatively durable, but do not use cardstock because it is too thick.

    • 2

      Choose a wedding program template to use. Maria's Wedding Boutique is a website that offers several different templates to use. Some of the programs are designed to print on two columns, causing a folded program. Others are for tri-fold wedding programs.

    • 3

      Copy and paste the template into a word processing program. Name and save the file prior to filling it out.

    • 4

      Type the personal information on the template. Almost all wedding programs include the full names of both the bride and groom. Other personalized details often include the church's name, wedding date and time of wedding.

    • 5

      Add all of the names of the bridal party. Separate the names by category and title. These categories generally include best man, maid of honor, bridesmaid, groomsmen, flower girls and ring bearers. Next to each person's name, include the relationship they are to either the bride, groom or both.

    • 6

      Write the order of ceremony. This section is generally listed on its own page in the program. Write each event, in order, that will occur during the ceremony. Include all special music numbers and details such as unity candle lighting, exchanging of vows and exchanging of rings.

    • 7

      Include additional details. Many couples will include a favorite quote, poem or Bible passage on the program. Other couples like to add a thank-you note on the program to thank everyone for coming or to specifically thank their families for the support and love given to them. You can also include your new address at the very end of the program to inform the guests where you can be reached.

      Print the invitations. Use the decorative paper to print these on and then fold them appropriately.

Tips &- Warnings

  • Do not print programs for all guests, but instead print for about 3/4 of the expected guest number.
