Three prime reasons for a wedding program are to give people
- the order of service
- the name of music and poetry pieces being used
- any longer readings in which they’ll participate
You do not want to publish short responses or the poems being read. People are congenitally incapable of listening when they’ve got reading matter in their hands. You want people listening to your words. They’re at your service to hear you make your promises to one another, not to read a lovely poem. Help them out!
Tip: Keep the reading material to your wedding at a minimum and you’ll have a far more engaged crowd!
