Your wedding programs give your guests a breakdown of exactly who and what they will be seeing on your big day, from the wedding party to the ceremony order, songs, officiants and readings. The wording on your wedding programs can easily reflect the tone and style of your nuptials. You don't necessarily have to go with the traditional phrases on your stationery. Instead, how about choosing wording based on your personality and wedding theme? One happy couple even turned their programs into a brochure titled "So You're Going to Sit Through a Wedding." Here are a few creative wedding program wording ideas based on your theme:
A vintage wedding program may call for romantic, poetic-like language. Stick to traditional wording such as, "The wedding ceremony of," "Welcome to," "The sacrament of" or "The marriage celebration of." Make sure the font you choose really reflects a vintage aesthetic, but is still easy to read.
Getting married on the beach under the sun? Consider printing your wedding programs on a fan to keep your guests cool throughout your romantic ceremony. As for the wording, you can consider implementing a passage that reflects the setting like, "A perfect shell is a gift from the sea, as beautiful and unique as our love is meant to be."
Accompany your wedding program's fresh, modern design with wording that's just as charming. Make the wording conversational and witty using clever plays on words and funny wedding party bios. But make your words count – keep it short, sweet and simple. Consider listing out the order of events in the form of a timeline, or stick with a short list of events like, "ceremony under the pergola, cocktails on the patio and dinner under the tent." Under the "Order of Ceremony" section, one couple simply wrote "Music starts, we get married, everyone parties."
