Wedding Program Cover

Customized program covers help personalize your wedding.

Wedding programs play an important role in your nuptials, since they convey the details of your ceremony and serve as a special keepsake for guests. When choosing your program, you'll want to pay careful attention to the cover.

What Makes a Good Wedding Program Cover?

Your wedding program covers double as title pages, which means that customized program covers should contain essential information about the wedding—including the names of the couple and the date and location of the event. Wedding program covers will often also include a general title such as "Our Wedding" at the top. This is all the text that is required, though you may choose to include a brief quotation that has special meaning for you or your wedding. For example, you might include a line of poetry, a song lyric, a native blessing, or an inspirational quote from a significant person or religious source. See our Traditional Wedding Quotes and Wedding Quotes and Sayings articles for suggestions.

The cover of your wedding program is also your opportunity to echo the mood and design of your wedding. The customized images and/or text you place on your cover will let your guests know a little bit more about your approach to the ceremony. To create a cohesive look, choose a design that echoes your wedding colors, theme, and/or the graphics used in your wedding invitations and other wedding stationery.
