Tips on Inexpensive Wedding Programs and DIY Wedding Programs
If you’re looking for cheap wedding programs ideas, you’re in luck because in this section we provide inexpensive wedding programs ideas and tips.
Your wedding program’s main goal is to let your guests know the order of service.
The program will help your guests follow along with all that is happening.
The actual material and style of your wedding program need not be too elaborate because as you might imagine luxury wedding programs are quite pricey.
Cheap Wedding Programs: What to include
The bride and groom’s names, the date and location go on the front cover. Inside you will have a list of the order of the wedding ceremony and a list of the names and roles of your bridal party. You will also need to include readings details, hymns and music that is going to be played during the ceremony.
Some other things that you might want to include are short explanations of certain rituals that you will be having such as the sand ceremony and memorials descriptions. You can also include a short sentence describing why the location was chosen, etc. Some couples also include love quotes or poems.
It’s also good to include directions to your reception venue, especially if you think that some of your guests might have some trouble finding it.
Inexpensive Wedding Programs: Getting the best deal
In order to get the best deal, we recommend that you get your wedding programs from the same vendor that you’re getting your invitations from, if possible. This will put you in a better position to negotiate for better rates. The more wedding stationery you buy (save the dates, invitations, thank you cards, programs, etc) from the same store, the better your chance to get great prices! And don’t be shy to negotiate.
For optimum results, you should get at least 3 quotes from different vendors. This will enable you to compare rates, materials, quality and services that you’re going to get.
DIY Wedding Programs
If you want to really save money, you can design your wedding programs yourself. You can find many websites online that offer free wedding program templates and free printable wedding programs.
Another tip that can potentially save you loads of money is to go with a single sheet wedding program as opposed to the more traditional booklet style. Less paper means less costs.
Although not essentially a must, a wedding program is recommended if:
- you’re inviting a lot of guests who come from different cultures and religious backgrounds. The program will help them follow what is going on.
- you’re having a large wedding
- your ceremony is long and elaborate
Your wedding program will probably be one of the few things that your guests will be able to take with them and treasure forever. Plus it makes your guests feel somewhat more participative in your big day.
