    They are not a must have, but it's a nice keepsake for those who save them.

    No..we weren't going to do them...but we cracked and decided to do it as a DIY project. Just winging it..no template necessary

    Not necessary, but we had 'sort of' programs, no order of services, just basically the names of the members in our wedding party, officiant, time, place and of course a butterfly to match the centerpeices. They were cute and needed no template. I designed it in like five minutes.

    Exactly, LadyH...we're doing it just to 'publish' the wedding party and give a cursory timeframe of what's the schedule will be...

    You can put on it that your ceremony is "unplugged" (if it is), thank guests for being there, include directions to reception, and any other necessary info. But, don't print until the last minute -- in case someone drops out of wedding party or a reader can't be there, etc.

    Not a must have, but I wish we had done them. I can't even remember all of our music selections anymore and it's only been 3 months. I have my grandparents' wedding programs, I would have loved to create one for us. I might actually cheat and finish the template I had started before the wedding that I didn't have time to finish.

    My FH demanded them, not for the ceremony order, but the order of events through out the day. He was at a wedding where he, the groomsmen, and a lot of other people all went back to the hotel room to do shots when the couple was having their toasts. The bride was pissed that so many of them missed it, so he wants people to know when they should stick around.

    We're planning to have fans with the program attached to it. They will get the programs front the front of the aisle on the beach and then be able to fan themselves with it if it ends up being a really hot day!

    We were thinking maybe just for the the Church. I really don't know if I want to do them.

    We weren't going to do them as it was an added expense but our officiant suggested we have them. We had them designed by DH's sister as she's a graphic designer. But....I do not think they were necessary. No one said anything about them and it was $80 we could have spent elsewhere. I don't even know what happened to them at the end of the night, I didn't even get one.

    I printed ours, they can be done fairly inexpensive.

    Not necessary, we're doing one but it will be relatively cheap from Vistaprint most likely

    We did program fans largely to help people cool off, and I'm glad we did.

    Definitely not necessary, but we are going to do program fans because we are getting married outside in August and it'll be HOT!
