Just like with wedding invitations, rules can be broken but in general, wedding programs should include things like the names of both the bride and the groom, the wedding date and time as well as the wedding venue. The wedding party should be included and if you want to, include how they are connected to either the bride or groom. Traditionally parents and sometimes grandparents are also listed as well as any special people such as the officiant, musicians, etc.
While some couples we have worked with choose to get a little creative with listing the wedding ceremony, it is a good idea to list the order of events including any special religious rituals that will take place during the ceremony. Also, it is proper to include any songs (with titles) that will be played or sung during the ceremony as well as any Bible passages that will be read.
