Do I Need to use Programs?

Do I need to print programs? I am not having a wedding party (no bridesmaids or groomsmen) and I would just as soon not have programs if it's not a big faux pas.  Thoughts?

    You don't need one. I assume since you have no bridal party it is probably a relatively simple ceremony (by which I men, not a full nuptial mass or the like). Programs can be nice to explain what's going on, introduce, and thank people, but not necessary. If you still want them, they can be DIY'ed for not too expensive.

    This.  You don't need one at all.

    Exactly as PP's said. You do not need them, if you still want them you can DIY for cheaper, but most people dont grab one or just toss them right away anyway. Unless you have a large WP you want to introduce, I wouldn't worry about it.

    the only time i've found myself looking through the program is if i hear a song i really liked or if it feels like its dragging on too long and i want to know how much more we have to sit through!! if its a simple ceremony, skip it.

    You need:
    • A partner
    • An officiant
    • A marriage license
    • Witnesses
    (And in some states, not even that much.)  Do what is meaningful to you, and skip the rest!
