Our programs were jam-packed enough to warrant breaking up into a couple posts. In the previous post I shared how we welcomed our guests and a little bit about how the programs were put together.
Here I’ll show more of the little details we added to make our programs more than just a guide to the ceremony, but also a guide to the couple and our families.

Guide to Symbols and Rituals
Almost all of our guests had never seen the Filipino coin, cord, and veil rituals that I discussed in a past post. Rather than just going through the motions, we used a page in the program just to highlight how we were incorporating the rituals and how they were different. Because they weren’t exactly traditional, I didn’t want our guests coming away with a certain idea of how it was supposed to be done.
