We are needing to send off our ceremony order for our programs. Being an interfaith ceremony there are slightly more components than if it were just one religion. However, this looks awefully long. Or is it just too detailed? Or, is it enough info to know everything that is going on? It will be printed in this order
Seating of the Families
Procession of the Groom and wedding party
Procession of the Bride
Ceremony introduction and opening prayer
Charge to the Bride and Groom
Reading of the Ketubah
Exchange of vows
Exchange of rings
Lighting the unity candle
Reading from 1 Corinthians
Breaking of the glass
Introduction of Bride and Groom

we are also having a interfaith ceremony, and started out with a long list like you.
we ended up cutting out the seating of the families completely. then we just said “processional” which included mine and theirs. it made for a much shorter program, and easier to read. 🙂 doesn’t mean you have to! 🙂 either way, i’m sure it will be great!

Not too detailed at all
Things that I was asked on top of what you have now
Is there prelude musics? if so what? is it performed… by who? CD… who will start it and when
What songs will be playing for each processional/recessional? Are they performed? CD?.. if CD who is in charge of playing it
Who are in the party… including mothers ring bearer &/ flower girl? What order will they be coming in?
If you know the time that things will start like prelude music start… and the ceremony start add that too
And I think that all I was asked on top of my order.. which was about as detailed as yours 😉
EDIT: Oh geeze sorry… didn’t realize you were talking about THE program.
I think it looks good & you can cut out “seating of parents” if you want but if you’re going to have a seperate song then I’d keep it on there.
You can also put “Exchange of Vows & Rings” on one line =)
Well atleast you know what you may be asked for later. lol… The assistant to our Pastor was who asked about all the “details” I added =)

@runsyellowlites: Our program is a playbill style so all (or most) of that is covered somewhere. We were going to list songs but it is giving us a headache even nailing those down so we figured we would just bypass that little detail. lol. We know everything else and most of that isn’t going in the program. But I know what you mean by needing all that info anyway. Thanks!
