    Nice to have for short ceremonies (15 minutes or less), need to have for longer / religious ceremonies. We're having programs since we are having a full Catholic mass, and roughly half of our invited guests aren't Catholic.

    Why give your guests a reason to not look at you during the ceremony? It's a nice to have

    Unless you are having a long, involved ceremony, it seems unnecessary. But if you want it, it isn't a big deal as you can design and print them yourself very affordably.

    Nice to have. We will be having them because the names of our wedding party along with their relationship to us will be listed, we're having a Memorial Reading which will be written and people will be able to look back on them later. Also, the older generation tend to keep mementos such as these.

    Nice to have unless it鈥檚 a religious ceremony. Not necessary for us because our ceremony will only be about 20 minutes.

    Same here! They'll be able to use the fans during the ceremony and definitely during the reception when the dancing gets started.

    Nice to Have for us. I think if you have your ceremony and reception in different locations, it's need to have.

    It is nice to have but me as a guest personally I just look at the names to see if i know people and then i use it towards the end to see how much longer we have until it is done. We did not get ones made.

    Nice to have. I will be posting the program on the wedding website. Everyone nowadays has cell phones with internet so it won鈥檛 be a big deal and with a 200 guest list, i will save a pretty penny !
