    We are getting legally hitched before we leave for our 'wedding' in Mexico and i'm just wondering if any of you have had some troubles writing your program for a symbolic ceremony? I have NO idea what to put on it. We aren't saying prayers or anything, so what have you all done for a symbolic wedding program?

    Thanks

        Hey, I just completed my programs actually. The main reason I wanted them was to give everyone a time line-when dinner was, when the reception was and where.........rather then just telling everyone. Soooo on the front cover, Theres a pic of me and fi saying something like,.."today I will marry my best friend", on the inside left its the wedding timeline along with a little poem at top...on the inside right theres the parents of the groom, bride, bridal party introduction, and on the back, its a little thank you note to everyone for coming...Id be glad to send you a pdf f it..you can pm me i f youd like to see....

          Thanks

            I did the same - legal wedding in the US and non-religious ceremony in Mexico.

            I did the following :

            - a time line in my welcome booklet that you can find there :

                    I'm totally in the same boat... doing the legal thing here (hush hush) and symbolic in Mexico... problem making a program is that I have no idea what the order of events is for the ceremony... I'd like to get a little more specific with what's going on rather than just mention wedding ceremony at 4pm...
