When most brides think of their future wedding stationery, they mostly picture items like save-the-dates, invitations, RSVP cards, and thank-you cards. But there are two other elements of wedding stationery that serve an important purpose for your big day. Including orders for programs and menus with the rest of your wedding stationery will not only ensure that the theme and style of your events stays consistent through all the various materials, but will also help guests feel more informed about what’s going on.
Including programs as part of your wedding stationery is helpful for wedding guests to keep them informed about the schedule of events throughout the day as well as provide other useful information. Programs are a great place to include details about the wedding party for guests who may not be familiar with friends and family members on the bride and groom’s side. It can also be the perfect place to explain any religious customs for guests as well as information or fun facts that are important to the bride and groom. If your ceremony and event are going to be held in two different venues, printing a map on the back of program can help make sure everyone arrives at the correct location.
If you will be hosting a seated wedding dinner that offers guests options for appetizers, main courses, or desserts, it’s almost essential to provide some sort of menu at the table so guests can decide on their selection before the waiter takes their order. Menus are also a great place to include specific information about the food being served, such as if it is vegetarian, vegan, Kosher, organic, etc.
So when it comes to ordering your wedding stationery, don’t leave out some of the smaller, yet equally important elements that will make sure your big day is just as enjoyable for your guests as it is for you.
