Wedding programs may include all of the ceremony information, such as the order of readings and songs, the date of the ceremony, and the names of the bride and groom and the bridal party on one page, or they can take the form of bi- or tri-fold pamphlets. For a more traditional religious ceremony, the program can be a small booklet that contains religious text throughout.
In creating a one-page program, one idea is to decorate the front side with a meaningful image and the initials of the bride and groom, and to the list the important ceremony items on the back of the card. Some choose simply to list the members of the wedding party, followed by a thank-you to the guests for their attendance. Others list ceremony elements such as the prelude, processional, readings, vow and ring exchanges and the pronouncement of the marriage. One-page programs can fit on half of a page, with either a landscape or portrait orientation.
The program can list participants by categories such as groomsmen, bridesmaids and parents, or it can list roles and names one by one. Another option is to have a grouping of family members listed at the top of the page, with ceremony participants listed at the bottom.
