Don’t Panic! Make sure you have your Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy programs!

Posted by


Offbeat Bride reader Alex has finally revealed to us the amazing Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy programs that her husband created. Thus renewing my faith in wedding programs in general. And with that, Alex's husband may have the satisfaction with the knowledge of a job well done.


Alex's clever husband says that all he did was choose a template on Word, delete everything, choose colours that matched their wedding colours, and let his imagination run wild! All Alex did was proofread, design the wordsearch and then spend five harrowing hours printing them all out! 🙂

Plus they double as a great way to explain your offbeat wedding…


Some factual information for you…


The Alex-designed word search, just in case you get bored…


So long and thanks for all the fish inspiration!

I apologize for those of you who have not read/watched/heard of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy because this post contained several quotes/allusions/excuses to write silly things contained in said book. You know me, I can't resist the urge to geek out. And also, you should probably buy the book.

  1. I love it! Makes me think I might actually have to design some programs myself. Maybe make them look like the programs you get at our local ren faire as a nod to the medieval clothes we and the bridal party will be wearing.

  2. That is seriously awesome!!

    Wish I had done it, I got a bit of HHGTTG in my wedding though. My right has "thanks for all the fish" engraved in bad latin.

  3. Oh, My, GOD!!!

    You guys have the best Ideas!

    I'm totally going to have to toss this by the future hubby, but a nice copy of the Origin of Species (he's an evolutionary biologist) and greek lettered tables (I'm in Mathematics)!!!!

    And I'm going to have to go the multi-day program route for yes RSVPs: We're getting married in Glacier National Park.

    I'm so excited right now.

  4. This is a brilliant idea..thank you soo much..I wasn't sure if we 'needed' programs, but they do give people the heads up of whats gonna happen…and with an idea like this…who wouldn't want wedding programs…(totally stealing this idea…thanks!!!)

  5. i think i might have to steal this idea too. i absolutely love the hitch hikers guide!!!!!

  6. When my fiance and I got engaged, we put “DON’T PANIC” on our wedding planning binder, and we plan to give out towels as favors. SO cute! I may steal your program idea!
