Check my wedding program?

Hi all,

This is the bit of the program that pertains to the ceremony order...I just want to make sure that I have the order and wording right before I print this.  There's no mass (as you will see).  All comments and suggestions welcome!  I just copy and pasted it so the spacing might be a bit funny looking. TIA

    I would also list the name of the person reading the intercessions.

    Also, I'm not sure about your parish, but mine strongly encourages putting the response for the responsorial psalm in the program.

    What about the priest's name for the Homily?  The Reverend "whatever" or Fr. "whatever"?

    I would agree with including the words for the responsorial psalm but otherwise I think that's all the right order.

    I have a question... My wedding program is very similar, but doesn't have the names of the people by what they are doing.... they're all listed on the back of the program. Is that okay or should their names be in both places? 

    Anniversary DS was born 11/30/12... so in love :)

    In my experience, when the names are seperate, people flip through the program to find out who it is doing what, instead of listening to the reading, etc. They don't need to be in 2 places, but it is better for them to be within the outline of whats going on.
