In my experience, something that may be different or unusual to half of your guests gets talked about at the wedding, so the people who do know the significance will fill the other guests in. You could always put a little note in the program about anything special.

We wanted our guests to know things like this also for my daughter’s wedding.

There were symbolic things that were meaningless to the guests unless they knew what was happening or why.


We included the fact that the best men and groom had a special ribbon within their boutonniere in remembrance of the groom’s deceased paternal grandfather.

There was a memory candle lit in honor of him and the bride’s maternal grandfather.

We also included what was borrowed, blue, old , and new—as they were all sentimental things for the bride.

We included them on the last page of the program, unobtrusively and tastefully.

Many guests commented on how unique and special it was and that they felt more a part of the wedding with the knowledge.

Put a little thank you in the wedding program.  Or at the reception, say thank you
