Artistic Ceremony Programs from Elegant Weddings

As your wedding looms, one of your biggest goals is likely to lay out the exact timeline of your event: your wake-up call, when your hair stylist will arrive, what time you need to be at the venue, the exact moment you begin your walk down the aisle, and all other important points. To a bride- or groom-to-be, these details are crucial to the wedding’s smooth progress – you’ll want to know what’s happening at all times. Well, chances are, your guests will want an idea as well. This is where your ceremony program comes in. 

Though some have chosen to forgo this practice in modern times, many couples find that providing their nearest and dearest with programs not only gives them the necessary information on their vows, but also provides a lovely keepsake for close family, as well as the pair themselves. What’s more, this is another detail of your nuptials that is completely customizable – you can put as much or as little effort into the design as you’d like.

In the pictures below, you’ll see itineraries of all kinds, from minimalist to romantic to modern. Click each photo for further inspiration from these real weddings.
