How To Prepare Your Wedding Bulletin (Program) Two of the most popular: 1. Use Plain or lightly coloured paper and roll it up so that it looks like a roll of parchment, and tie it with a ribbon. 2. Others use a piece of regular 8 ½ by 11, and fold in the middle like a regular church bulletin. Most people purchase wedding bulletins from a supply store, because they have covers that are pre printed with colorful and meaningful pictures. You can choose from a wide variety of images and themes. (they are available from Synod Office in Gander) A Couple of Samples: What Goes in the Bulletin?....The Bulletin generally provides 1. Information about the service . 2. The names of the people involved 3 The Hymn (if there is one) 4. The names of the Parents 5. A Thank You from the Bride and Groom 6. Any other information you may want to share such as the time and place of the Reception etc Below are two examples of Church Bulletins prepared for use in the Anglican Church, Using The Book of Alternative Services. Style and formatting is up to you- as is the information you wish to provide. You should ALWAYS get the officiating clergy to check your bulletin before printing it. SAMPLE: 1. If you are using a folded bulletin, you have three panels to use.
