The 15 Best Winter Wedding Program Ideas



How to Choose a Program for Your Winter Wedding



What date your nuptials fall upon will inform your decision of which program best suits the occasion. For instance, a New Year’s Eve wedding deserves some silver, gold and sparkle, obviously. A ceremony that takes place around Christmas should incorporate some extra cheer and holly. Lots of holly! No matter when the wedding falls, you’ll want the program to be in keeping with the overall theme of your wedding. A modern, sleek affair will require an equally chic program. A rustic winter soiree needs a program that features a woodland vibe, perhaps. We can’t wait to show you over-the-top options for your winter wedding program, as well as cute, fun choices alike. Note that some programs are card-style, while others are bifold or trifold. How much info you plan to include on the program will likely dictate how much space you need.



Winter Wedding Program Considerations



You’ll see that the cost per program is very low, sometimes as little as $1. The total price for a print run depends on how many guests you’ll have in attendance. You can save money if you do it yourself versus having the programs professionally printed. But, ahem, some of us don’t exactly have the best color printer. So paying for the printing may be worth the expense to spare yourself the stress. Especially since you have a million other wedding details to worry about!




For a winter wedding, think glitter, and warm hues. Think lush botanicals, twinkly lights, reds, greens, blues, and bold gold. No color is “wrong” for winter. It’s all about what works with your vision, and gives you the coziest feels.




The programs in this roundup range from blatant holiday vibes, to more subdued suggestions of winterscapes. Whether you want your program to scream Christmas, or simply give off a warm glow, keep scrolling and you are sure to stumble upon the perfect program for your winter wedding.
