Tea Length Wedding Programs

Why choose Tea-length? Long and luxe, Tea-length Programs lend a sense of elegance--and because of that, have a more formal feel. The streamlined look is lovely and even though they're slender, there is still plenty of room to share your details. Tea-lengths measure at 3.625 x 8.875 with full-color printing on both sides.

What's in a Program?

Since every wedding is unique, every ceremony will be unique. After all, it's an extension of your wedding style and the uniqueness of your relationship and family dynamics.

5 typical components of a wedding program include {not always in this order}:

1. Opening
Bride & Groom
date & location
2. Order of events
music, readings, poem, explanations, translations,
3. Parents & Officiant
bride's parents, groom's parents, officiant, readers, musicians,
4. Wedding Party
maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids, groomsmen, junior bridesmaids, ushers, flower girl, ring bearer,
5. Personalized Message
