    Okay, so I have NO CLUE on how to inform guests the order of the wedding.

    Ceremony at 3 on the beach, followed by champagne toast, pictures, then meeting for dinner at 7, then the reception immediately after dinner

    Now my problem is, where do I put all this info for guests? Do I do a program and put it with their fan on their chair at the ceremony (the invitations stated the ceremony time, location).

      We are planning on giving out programs at the ceremony, most likely handed out by a family member or other important person, or possibly with fans (you can find templates for all of this on these forums).

      We also put the information on our wedding website under "Wedding Day Activities" so that guests had a bit of a heads up.

      Just to reinforce everything (which I'm finding is a MUST for a DW), all of it will also be in the welcome brochure.

      I guess between those three things, we hope to have our bases covered. I'm sure we'll STILL have someone clueless as to what is going on. But hey! At least they can't say I didn't try!

        I have seen some that are set on the chairs, others on a table in a basket on the way in, also persons passing them out. we are including an insert which has a short and sweet timeline

          If you got a list of room numbers you could drop them off at each room prior to the wedding...so they have time to look over the information are prepare, and have some at the wedding.

          I have all this stuff posted on my web page. I will probably put an agenda in their rooms apon arrival to the resort that not only list the wedding day activities ,but the trip activities...Meet and Greet Dinner..ect..

            I too have put all the info on the website but have found with a DW i have to keep reiterating the important info as DWbridetobe has said. I will also put the info in a welcome brochure i am making to hand to them on arrival including a short and sweet timeline.

                We didn't do programs. Just put all of the info in the welcome letter. We had 50 guests and everyone made it to every event without any problems.
