What kind of wedding are you having? Is it religious?

The basics are usually as follows:

Your full name and your partners full name with date on top. Sometimes it will say, "The marriage celebration of"

Then you list the wedding party. BMs and GMs, parents, grandparents, any readers, flowergirls/RBs, any program or guest book attendents. Example: Bridesmaids                                                                                   Jane Smith……. Sister of the Bride (or friend of the bride or cousin, whatever)

Then you list what will be said and done, whether it is a reading, exchanging of the vows, etc, etc, just the order of your ceremony explained.

If you are doing something "unique" you can explain it, like a special ritual some people may not be familiar with….

Some people have a loving memory page of those who cannot attend.

Then a special thank you from you two and you’re done! You can also mention that the reception is immedately following or will start at a certain time, etc…

Sorry I don’t know if that was very clear….. If you are having a specific religious ceremony sometimes you can ask someone at that venue for an example of what goes in… That is what I did.

Try asking the peeps at your ceremony site for some examples. The lady at our church said she has several I can take a look at next time we meet.

You can easily do this yourself, there are no hard and fast rules.  You can include all or none of the following:  Names of parents, names of wedding party; such as MAID OF HONOUR: Jane Smith, Sister of the Bride, etc.  It is nice to pay tribute to or explain any special cultural or religious traditionsthat someone might not understand like why the groom breaks a glass or why you are not offering communion to the guests etc.  Some people mention parents or grandparents who have passed, Obviously you would want to list the order of the wedding, songs you are using, etc.  You can put anything else that interests you, like a history of the area or how you met or a map to the reception, thanks to your guests..seriously anything you want.
