- Wedding: July 2013
I am lost! And I am second guessing myself all over the place.
On the front part of my ceremony programs I am listing out what will be happening during the entire ceremony, and I am having my first problem.
- Should I tell people that my Fiance and I are going to light a candle in memory of his mother before the officiant speaks.
- Is the pronouncement when the officiant says, “Now announcing Mr. and Mrs. Dahling!” What is the pronouncement exactly anyway?
- Is the pronouncement the same as the “presentation of the bride and groom?”
On the back of my ceremony programs I am going to write out the bridal party list.
I have listed my Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man, Best man (who is also the officiant), and GMs. I also listed the mother of the bride because she is going to give me away. So my question is:
- Do I put my FI’s dad on the back even if he has done nothing for the wedding?
Now that may sound bad, but I feel like it is a valid question. His father wants nothing to do with our wedding, and tells me I shouldn’t marry his son, and is only coming because he says he feels obligated to, so I feel in light of this that I shouldn’t have to put him on the ceremony programs…..BUT! I don’t know if this goes against some kind of ceremony program etiquette. If it is approperiate to put his name on there then I’ll do it, but if only people who are apart of the bridal party need to be on the program then I won’t put his name up there.
Thanks for answering my questions bees!
