- Wedding: June 2009
I am working on our programs and I feel like I’m missing something. I’ve found lots of posts on program design but not a lot about program content. We are having an interfaith Catholic-Jewish wedding and here is what I have for the programs so far:
Cover page with our names, date, location
Two pages (it’s a petal fan) with family/bridal party. I’m planning to list our parents and his grandmother. All of our other grandparents are deceased, am I supposed to list them?
Then I have a page listing the officients and the order of the ceremony:
Seating of the Families
Reading – Corinthians 13:1-7
Questions of Intent
Exchange of Vows
Presentation of the Ketubah
Exchange of Rings
Breaking the Glass
The last petal of the fan will have a thank you message that I haven’t written yet.
We were going to do explainations of the different traditions but decided not to. It seemed too one sided because I could only find explainations for the Jewish traditions and it felt like by only explaining the jewish traditions, we were pointing them out as being different. Does that make sense? Oh, and the Cantor who will be co-officiating has worked some simple explainations into the actual ceremony to explain whats going on.
Am I missing something here? I feel like I’m forgetting something.
