Should you include a ceremony agenda? Write bios for your bridesmaids? How much info should you include? And should you hire a stationer or do them yourself? Our guide will walk you through the different options—we've organized them according to level of difficulty—to help you decide.

Paddle Fan

If the weather will be warm during the ceremony, try this program/fan. Recent bride Katie Kurumada, whose wedding was featured in Brides Atlanta, created these adorable paddle fans with the help of one of her bridesmaids. One side has the couple's grade-school photographs, while the other includes a ceremony outline, the wedding party list, and a note of thanks. Here, extensive ceremony details were not included, to make room for lighthearted fun.
