Ceremony program..??? Need help/advice asap :)

Recommended Posts

OK..

 

so I'm trying to put my ceremony program together to send it to my invitation lady, but I'm at lost as to where to start. We're having 10-12 guests, I'm having my 2 bestfriends be my bridesmaids NO MOH, because my MOH who was suppose to be my sister can't make it, because of her money situation... sad.gif My fiance probably won't have any groomsmen because his guys can't make it either also due to money issues... sad.gif And to top it all off...my dad can't make it now either... sad.gif

 

So should I put a "Wedding Party" on the Program?

I feel like I should list my 2 bridesmaids names somehow..but howhuh.gif

I want a sand ceremony, and a blessing of the stone segment at the end too.

 

SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME!!!

We decided not to do a ceremony program... we have a small group attending and we only have a maid of honour and best man... we will also be doing the sand ceremony.

 

We will be verbally thanking everyone by name at the reception.

 

I know that doesn't help with your request on how to do the program, but I just wanted to let you know what we chose to do...

You can absolutely still do a wedding party portion, why not? You are recognizing those that are standing up for you at the wedding.

I would just list it all out..

Start with a list of bridal party; then go into readings (if you have them) and detail the steps of the ceremony in order.

 

Here are a couple things I found when I just did a quick google search-

Gee..Thanks so much for those website links..that was just what I needed.

Also, I was wondering would it be silly to list only our parents names on there?

After all, they have helped us so much throughout our lives. I wish I could find a passage that will somehow recognize these individuals whole are VERY close to us, who haven't deceased, but just couldn't be there with us that day.

HMMM...

This is what I did - I made our programs myself, so they were pretty simple, but we also only had 2 BMs and no groomsman.

Thanks you guys!!!

Well, here is what I cam up with so far...

please comment!!! Did I leave anything out? Is it too much?

 

By the way, what is a Prelude?

 

And where it says "Processional"...is this the song in which my bridesmaids walk down the aisle to?

 

Do I, THE BRIDE, need a separate processional?

 

"Recessional" is the song me and hubby will use to walk back down the aisle to... correct?

 

Should I list the names of these songs and the song artist?

Dreamgirl - this looks nice :) I don't think you have left anything out.

If you want to you can list the minister if he/she is important as well, but that's not necessary.

Ours was really short and brief because I wanted it to fit onto a small piece of paper. Also, I didn't know what our music would be until after I printed them all up!

 

Prelude: is the music that is playing while guests are getting settled into their seats.

Processional: is usually the music that the bride walks down to. In our case, my BMs and I ended up walking down to the same song (Book of Love by Peter Gabriel). I thought that would be weird, but it ended up being perfect for us. :)

 

Good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
