Wedding programs-are you doing them?

Hi everyone,Are you guys having wedding programs? I think they are  a good thing to have, but I am not sure if I really want to do them. Any thoughts?

    We did a really simple flat card program.  It just listed the order of the ceremony, the wedding party names, our parents names, and had a general thank you to our family and friends.  Pic in planning bio.

    We did wedding programs. It was a simple, inexpensive DIY project (PIB) and our guests seemed to appreciate being able to follow along with the readings. I know a number of them kept them too!

    I didn't want to but my mom insisted.  They turned out pretty good (PIB) but they're a pain.  I have to take out the memorial page on all of them and re-do it.

    We are doing a very simple wedding program that is the size of a sheet of paper folded in half. We are printing them out on nice cardstock and putting a ribbon them. The cardstock was $7 at Sam's and we're printing them in black & white. We haven't picked out ribbon yet but it will be really inexpensive . I have been to several weddings without them and it really felt like something was missing. I know everyone says that no one will notice, but some people do.

    We're having a small wedding and a short ceremony, so I've decided to skip them. I really think it depends on the wedding, and like PP said they are nice in that they allow guests to follow along with the readings and such :)

    Yes, we are doing them. I've never been to a wedding that didn't have them so I look for them. It's great to give the guests some to read [or fan themselves] before the ceremony starts. Some keep them for a memento and we were able to put things in there that didn't have a place any where else. Ours are 8 pages long.

    Not doing it. I didn't really see the point, in that if I attended a wedding that had them I would just end up tossing it right after, or letting it sit in my car for months. I'm having a pretty small wedding though, and a pretty short and sweet ceremony.

    We had an inter-faith wedding so my MIL printed up a program explaining what happens during the ceremony and what everything means for the people who weren't familiar with the type of ceremony we had.  My family found it helpful, since parts of the ceremony were in a foreign language.  But had that not been needed, we wouldn't have done programs.
