We've Moved

Guess what we did last night... 

We moved! Now the blog and the website are under the same roof. We still have some decorating to do in our new home, so please forgive us if it looks a little untidy at times. We're just getting used to our new habitat.

Wedding Programs

One of the most frequent questions brides ask me is:
Do we need wedding programs?

My answer is that the choice is yours. If your wedding ceremony includes special traditions, customs, or personalized elements, then you should use a wedding program to explain what they mean. If your ceremony is going to be very short, sweet, and basic, then you might not need a program.

For those of you who will have one, here are a few tips to keep in mind as you design your wedding program:

  • Ceremony traditions in the order they will occur. (Be sure to review this with the officiant before it goes to print.)
  • Title of readings and name of the reader (If there is room on the program, you may include the actual poem or scripture.)
  • Title of musical selections and name of singers/musicians
  • Names of members of the wedding party (Their relationship to the bride/groom may be added)
  • Memorial: Names or photos of important people who are now deceased. 
  • Explanations of personalized elements, such as unity candle, unity sand, jumping the broom, etc. 
  • Provide directions from ceremony to reception. CAUTION: Only do this if everyone at the ceremony will be invited to the reception.

Do not allow this to be a last minute decision. Plan what it will say and how it will look at least 2 months before your wedding day.

Happy Planning!
