Doing Programs...

Anyone have any insight to how the ceremony goes, like the timeline for one, maybe give some examples, Im going to be making my own programs, of course after talking with the officiant, but I need some insight on the order of things. Thanks

My officiant gave us the order of the ceremony. I looked, but don't have it saved any more.

Hello my dear and welcome to PW!!! Congratulations on your engagement. I did my own programs as well and depending on if you have an outside ceremony or a church ceremony, your timeline may vary. It also depends on if you add any special elements to your ceremony such as someone singing a solo or doing readings. I had an outdoor ceremony and I hired a guitarist to play music. Here was the timeline for my ceremony. It may seem like a lot but it went fast and all these elements may not be including in everyone's ceremony. For instance we did a rose ceremony instead of the unity candle, had a soloist sing and one of my nieces preceded me down the aisle chanting The Bride is Coming! Believe it or not, all of this took about 20 minutes. 


Prelude - Guitar Melody


Seating of families by ushers


Seating of parents


Solo by Husband's aunt, Because You Loved Me, by Celine Dion


Attendant's Processional (Pastor, DH, Best Man followed by bridal party)


Entrance of Ringbearer


Entrance of Flowergirls


Announcing of coming of the Bride


Bride's Processional


Greeting by Reverend


Declaration of Intent by Reverend


Lord's Prayer 


Declaration of marriage


Vows and exchanging of rings

Hey there and welcome to PW!! The cool thing is you can be as formal or as casual in your programs as you want! I chose not to do programs, but if I did I would have kept it simple:


 


Welcome!


Sit down and shut up


Enter: Mother of the Bride


Enter: Parents of the Groom


Enter: The boys: Back in Black -AC/DC


Enter: The girls: Ecstacy of Gold -Metallica


Enter: Bride and Father of the Bride: Fur Elise-Beethoven


Ceremony


Vows


Rings


Marriage!


YAY!!


 


That's just me though. lol. I hope the other ladies help!
