Review my program please!

I am trying to figure out how to layout my program. We plan to have a guitarist to play a variety of songs as guests are being seated.  When the aunts, grandmother and mother are escorted in a specific song is played and will continue to play while the flower girls, groom and minister walk in.  Then when I walk in Canon in D will begin.  So far this is what I have...does it make sense?  Am I missing anything? Above seating of aunts should I call it processional and list the song and then aunt, gm and mother seating?   

Prelude
        Montage of Guitar Classics
Seating of Aunts
Seating of Grandmother
Seating of Mothers
         Alla Luce Del Dio
Bride's Processional
          Canon in D
Greeting
GIving of the Bride
Reading
        
           The Art of Marriage
Exchanging of Vows
Reading 
        
           Apache Wedding Blessing
Exchanging of Rings
Announcement of Marriage
Benediction
Presentation of Couple
Recessional
           
             Here comes the sun


The other side has the wedding party and a note at the bottom thanking everyone.  We are not having bridesmaids or groomsmen just flower girls that are presenting roses to our mothers.  So during the song Alla Luce Del Dio is the seating of aunts, grandmother, mothers, groom walk in, minister walk in and flower girls.  Then a different song for me.  I thought maybe I should put this instead of what it is above:

Prelude
      Montage of Guitar Classics

Processional
?
      Alla Luce Del Dio
Seating of Aunts
Seating of Grandmother
Seating of Mothers

Bride's Processional
      Canon in D

    One of the things that stick out to me is the "Seating of the Mothers, Aunts, Grandmothers" - Are there no men that need to be seated?

    What about Seating of the Parents and Seating of the Grandparents (as I'm assuming they would be escorted down together).  

    Is it necessary that the aunts need to be escorted in?

    You also need to add the authors and composers, if you wish, it looks a little incomplete.

    Here is what I have as an example.  I'm not saying this is right, but I did do a little research.

    Good point.  I have done a lot of research on this as well, but can't find our situation.  Most programs list a bridal party...so I'm trying to make it fit our wedding.  The men will be seated as well.  We do want to seat our aunts because they are very special to us.  FI actually lived with his aunt for about 5 years as a child.  Since we are not having a wedding party and using the same song for family seating, groom and minister walking in and flower girls should I just title that Processional and then when I walk in Bridal Processional?  Thanks for replying.
