    Tried a search on this but I think my wording is to generic because everything is coming up.

    Im trying to order my programs and when it comes to the ceremony besides the exchange of vows and sand ceremony, what is there?

    Oh my god am i bad bride...I honestly dont know! Im looking at my sisters who had a cathlioc ceremony and just the ceremony part is like three pages long...lol!

                You can include a short description of each member of the wedding party and their relationship to you/your FI. You can also add a thank you if anyone went above and beyond in helping you put together the wedding. Also, some brides include a little description about different traditions and symbols in the ceremony (e.g. meaning of the unity candle, or any other tradition).

                  I don't remember where I found this but this is the order for a Christian Ceremony. Sorry it's so long!!! My programs are going to be skinny and the first page will have the order of the cermeony with music and reading cited. The second page will be about the bridal party I'm thinking of including our reading on the last page because I really like it.
