[The program]

The Program
I designed a tiny scroll, tied with red ribbon, that listed the names of the wedding party and the officiant, contained a quote from It's A Wonderful Life and thanked everyone for being our friends, and listed my new married name. Basically, it was an elaborate "At Home" card, since otherwise we wouldn't have needed a program. I used a fancy hole punch to decorate it, and printed it on special paper.

Here's the text of the program:

We would like to thank all of you for being here with us as we celebrate our wedding vows. This is the happiest night of our lives, and your being here makes it even happier.

Thank you, one and all, for being our friends.
