The wedding program explains all the details of the wedding ceremony, giving your guests an idea of what to expect. In addition to the basic ceremony information, such as the names of the wedding party and the order of the ceremony, the program can also include a special section to remember someone special to you.
Choose where on the program to place the remembrance. If the program opens up like a book, include the remembrance section at the end of page two. Otherwise, include it at the end of the program or on the back cover.
List the names of the person or persons you want to remember. To elaborate beyond just names, write something like, "We remember Shari's loving mother Mary, as she cannot be with us today to share in this special celebration of the joining of our two lives."
Add a poem or scripture verse that is especially important to you or to the deceased beneath the names.
Tips & Warnings
- Include a sentence or two relating a story dear to your heart that reminds you of your loved one.
- Include a note after the wedding program remembrance section to ask your guests to say a prayer for those you are remembering.
- Add a small picture of the deceased in the program beneath the remembrance.
