Wedding Ceremony Q&As

Answers to who walks when, who stands where, and other ways to make sure your ceremony is perfect.

Q: What's the best way to distribute our wedding programs? Should we leave them on a table at the back of the church or ask our ushers to hand them to our guests as they arrive? 

A: There are a number of ways to distribute wedding programs and none of them include leaving them on a back table. I went to a wedding recently where the couple did just that, and most of their guests (including me) didn't know that programs were available. Unfortunately, only a few people spotted them. After putting time and effort into writing and designing your program, you'll certainly want guests to appreciate it. I'd recommend having ushers hand them out to guests as they walk in or having them placed on each seat prior to the ceremony.
