I don’t think you need to put anything in the program, actually — just ask your ushers or a couple of friends to make their way to the back of the church at the end of the ceremony, and hand out/make sure people take the bells/wands, and tell them to wait for you guys to exit.  

Everyone usually mills around a little at the end of a wedding anyway, so if you have a couple people in charge of making sure they know to wait to send off the bride & groom, it should go off perfectly without the need to instruct people in the program.

At the last wedding I went to, they did the same thing.  They had ushers handing out bubbles and told everyone where to go.  It was freezing, so waiting for them kinda sucked…they also did a receiving line, so we had to wait until they were done with that.  I know this sounds rude but we actually didn’t stay to blow bubbles…we waitied for 20 minutes and then left.  It was so cold, and the receiving line was still super long!

Yeah, if I read that I would assume that the bride and groom weren’t attending the reception!  Let your ushers and Bridal Party know what’s going on (be very, very clear, BTW) and they’ll get people out! 🙂
