I love the moment when I describe having a perfect wedding program is similar to watching a perfect theater. There are many similarities between them. Our wedding is just like theater. It is a conduct with its own artists, special music, costumes, play set, theme, and other things. It is just like we watch a captivating play, an unforgettable and everlasting story of our wedding will unfold as the wedding progresses. wedding program is similar to watching a perfect theater.

            The only problem is your guests. Well, it is not an actual problem at all, if you understand your guest which is quite rare for today. My point is you sometimes our wedding may not stay on the ‘right’ path as we expected it. We may come with great idea on how the wedding will run for the whole day, but sometimes we forget that our wedding is not only ‘our’ wedding, but also everyone’s wedding. That is the reason we invite people to come. We want to share the love, joy, and happiness to everyone. We have felt the love living in our life. So, why do not we share it to other people?

            Sharing the story of your love at your wedding day is how actually we should look at wedding. Many of us still do this thing, but do you ever realize that sometimes your wedding attendants cannot get the idea you want to share to them about the wedding? They may have come to the venue and congratulated you for your wedding, but do you ever realize there are some of them who doubt the real reason they should come to your wedding day? Well, for me, this is quite embarrassing because instead of being happy together, your guests can only sit and watch from their seat. No, there is nothing wrong with everything they ‘choose’ to do. The only person or maybe couple you should ‘blame’ for this is your wedding program management. Words I use may be too ‘scary,’ ‘scientific,’ or even ‘nonsense,’ for some of you, but that is the real thing that happens in the world of marriage.

            So, that is how it works. When you get problem with your wedding program management, the best solution you get is a well-managed wedding program. There are many benefits you can get from this program, but this time we will focus on how it help your guests in following your wedding. Some couples may think the one I am going to suggest to you is not important. For this ‘issue,’ instead of listing the reasons for you, I choose to show the benefits you will get.

            A wedding program works similar to a guide to your wedding ceremony. It tells your guests about everything they want and should know about the wedding. In fact, this program makes everyone active part of the wedding. So, instead of sitting, watching, and do nothing, they will become integrated parts of your wedding. They will enjoy the ceremony and fell how your wedding affects their life.

            Yes, I know it sounds great, even some of you may have started thinking now on how you may handle and afford another further detail of this wedding planning. Well, if I were you, I will leave this old traditional. I know there is nothing wrong if you ask these questions, but this wedding program has more good news than ‘pains’ and hard times you can imagine. Per my experience, computer-generated pages, little fancy paper, and some fastening together is the all things you need to get the perfect wedding of your own. Yes, those things will impress all your wedding guests and make everyone who does not pay attention to your wedding, regret for their whole life.

So, after all the benefits, let’s get started with the wedding program!

 

Express yourself!

            Pretend yourself as someone who is currently working as a designer for a wedding program. Since you have no formal guidelines to follow, your wedding program can turn into precisely everything you want. It can be a single sheet of wedding card that contains only the crucial details or even a thick wedding booklet with all words you want to say at the big day. Furthermore, you can make the cover from textured, luscious paper you made yourself and an ornate ribbon or maybe a small stiff wedding postcard. There are tons of fresh ideas waiting for you. So, just free yourself and start make those ideas real!

 

Cover yourself

            Your local stationery store should become your first adventure post, as well as office supply and art supply shop. If you want a cover, make sure you have set your target on beautiful wedding paper, such as transparent velum, embossed paper, high-quality note cards, or even wedding paper with unique details. For the cover, you can either fold the paper in half or use two of it. If the store also has a handmade paper you like, make sure the staff can help you by cutting the paper to the size you like.

            When available, your eyes also should not miss the rubber stamp with fancy initial. It will perfectly fit as wedding decoration with elegant feel.

If you believe cover is not the best option you get, try thick stock in cream or white. This lovely paper will make nice and simple fit with your wedding program. Turn the paper into a booklet by folding it in half or bind the papers with a nice ribbon.

 

Bindings

            You better get tasseled cords and unique ribbons from notion shops. With their fancy ornament, they will be nice as bindings. You may need to add floral ribbons to give it fresh look, grosgrain ribbon or white satin for the elegant and traditional look.

 

Printing Press

            After having all the cards, bindings, ribbons, and any card-related cards, now you need to get back in front of your computer to play with all special wedding fonts you get. Instead of using general word processing software, I recommend you to using desktop publishing program to play with the images, typestyles, and templates because it usually gives better result than MS Word or other similar programs.

            Please also remember that design is not only the crucial aspect you should concern, but also the words you put. Ask your partner to proofread your work carefully, especially the words. You can print your work once your partner has completed his or her work.

 

What’s Inside

            Your cards may look amazing, but it is never the crucial aspect of your wedding program. The content still hold the place. So, make sure you have put all information in place, such as your name as the title and your wedding venue as well as the date on the title page.

 

Order, order!

            Help your guests by making list of the order of events at your wedding ceremony. The list should include songs, music, readings, poems, and other related stuffs. For the readings, keeping the content in entirety will help your guests in savoring every word. Furthermore, if you like, you can also turn the words into songs everyone can sing.

I know this is not a common idea, but if you have come with your own wedding vow, you can add the vow you made to your wedding program so each word you will speak can linger with everyone at the venue. If applicable, you can also provide brief explanation to  your guests about any religious rituals that will happen during the ceremony to help them know the means, especially if not all of your guests have the same religious as you have.

 

The Cast

            Special people help you make special wedding. Do not forget everything they have done for you because they are actually part of your life. While most couples choose to tell their names to their guests, I recommend you to taking different path by listing their names on your wedding card. This way you will guarantee not only everyone at the venue will remember their name, but also they have special place in both of your hearts. You can also include brief description at the beginning of the even that tells everyone relationship between these special people and the couple.

 

Quotable

            It is your wedding. That makes you have all the privileges to make a perfect wedding based on your own taste. You can add song lyrics, poetry, scripture, or anything you believe will give an unforgettable wedding program for you. Tell everyone what you think about your wedding day and feeling about it with this wedding program. wedding program for you. Tell everyone what you think about your wedding day and feeling about it with this wedding program.

 

Remembrance

            If there is someone special in your heart, but he or she has passed away, do not just forget him or her. A true special person is a person who lives forever in your heart. Pay homage to this special person in your wedding. Mention these people in your wedding and tell everyone that even though they cannot come to the wedding, they will always live in your heart. That is what true love means.

 

Express your gratitude

            Other people you should remember in your wedding is everyone who has supported you throughout your life, especially your relationship. Thank your parents as well as other people who come to your wedding. You can say, “We would like to say our greatest gratitude to our lovely parents for their unconditional love and support to us. We would also thank to our friends and everyone for sharing this lovely day. Thank you for your love and support to us. We could never be here without all of you.”

This may be a simple speech to say, but everyone at the venue will understand the true meaning of being someone’s special part of life.

 

Don’t wait

 

            Due to complex processes it involves, some people choose to ask their wedding organizers to plan the wedding program. However, I still recommend you to doing everything since the first part of the wedding program until it completes because you are the only one who knows everything you want to get the perfect wedding, but please remember one thing: wedding is not a simple thing. Give yourself enough time to prepare everything you need for the wedding and do not forget to set deadline for the whole task at least fourteen days before the big day. Do not wait until the last day, hours, or even seconds because it will only bring you the unnecessary stress. So, unless you love stress better than your husband, you should keep the plan stay on the deadline.wedding program until it completes because you are the only one who knows everything you want to get the perfect wedding, but please remember one thing: wedding is not a simple thing.
