The back of your program is the perfect place to thank all the people that helped in the preparation of your wedding and gave you support throughout the planning. You may want to thank your parents, or put a love poem or favorite verse. Here are some suggestions for words to use on the back of your program:
We would like to thank
our families and friends
for joining us in celebration today.
You mean the world to us!
(Your names here)
I could not tell fact from fiction
Or if my dream was true
The only sure prediction
In this whole world was you...
Love . . .
is patient and kind;
love is not jealous,
or conceited, or proud,
love does not keep
a record of wrongs;
love is not happy with evil,
but is pleased
with the truth.
Love never gives up;
its faith, hope, and patience
Our future is off to a beautiful start.
We've been showered with love and friendships,
we'll hold dear in our hearts.
We wish to give special thanks
to our fantastic parents. We are
products of your love and support,
and are thankful every day for
your presence in our lives.
Two hearts together,
One love forever.
We discovered love,
gently unfolding in our hearts,
whispering of the joy to come.
Our dreams will come true,
creating memories that
we'll cherish for a lifetime.
We begin a new journey
hand in hand,
eager to explore a world of promise.
We will share an everlasting love.
Thank you for joining us as we begin our new life together.
It means a lot to have all of our friends and relatives here
to share in our celebration. We appreciate all those who
gave us support and help through our wedding preparation,
and who gave of their time to make our day so special.
Thank you for being part of our happily ever after...
Today as we stand before God and our family friends,
I only ask one thing from you; love me forever.
Love me when it feels like all your desire is gone.
When everything in the world seems to advise against it, love me still more.
When rage fills you: love me.
When our life and love are not the harmony you imagined, love me.
Be extravagant with your love, even when each step from our door to work
tires you, and when each step from work to home seems like a chore; love me.
Love me withered, as you love me new.
I will make all of this easy for you by showering you with my love,
which is unconditional, infinite and the realest thing I know.
Love, admire, and adore me; depend trust, and confide in me; accept,
understand, and forgive me; reason with me; comfort me, laugh and celebrate
with me; devote yourself to me; praise me, grow with me; love me.
We would like to thank our family and friends
who share our lives and are here today
to share our special day.
We feel blessed to be surrounded
by so many wonderful people.

Dear Mom and Dad,
We would like to extend a special thanks to our parents whose support
and advice through the years has made us the individuals we are today.
This day would not be possible with out the unconditional love and
never-ending support of our parents. They've helped lead us both to
this glorious union as husband and wife. We hope that they will
continue to share their wisdom with us, as we have much more to learn
about living as one.
Thanks Mom and Dad for everything.
Dear Family and Friends,
We are so pleased that you all have honored us with your presence today.
The friendship, laughter, shoulders to cry on, and the hands to hold that
each of you has provided has enriched our lives. We know the effort that
it took to come out here today to be a part of our most glorious day. We
give a special thanks to all of you for your love and support, as we
start this journey through life together. May love and peace prosper in
each of your hearts.
A special thanks to my groomsman who stood by me
on this special day. Over the years your friendship has
made this dream a reality for me. Your friendship and
support will never be forgotten, or taken for granted.
Your friendships will be part of the foundation that
my wife and I build our future on. Thank you so much
for standing by my side. God bless all of you.
I want to thank, first and foremost, my parents who
I admire so much and who taught me to love unconditionally
by example and also taught me that nothing in the world
is more important than family. They are right and I hope
I can someday be half the parents they have always been.
I want to thank all of our friends who stood by us and
took care of us through the past year of uncertainty.
Without them we would not have made it through.
~~~~GOD WORKS MIRACLES!!~~~~
Thank you to (name of your church here) and all of its
members for all their support and love. A very special
thanks to (your friend's name here), who did the most amazing job
helping me plan this wedding. I have no idea what I
would have done without her!! Thank you, lastly, to all
my school friends whom I have spent many LONG hours
with, and who have been my motivation when I wanted to give up!
(Your fiancee or fiance's name here), I love you with all my heart
and look forward to forever with you.
We saw her once before like this
all wrapped in purest white.
Her face was red and wrinkled
and her fists were clenched up tight.
She screamed a cry of protest
at the world we'd brought her to
And we dreamed a million dreams for her,
for that's what parents do.
And now she stands before us
in the gown in which she'll wed
And the dreams that we've been dreaming
all start spinning in our heads.
How can time pass so quickly
and our little babe be grown?
Standing there in all her beauty,
chasing dreams now of her own.
And the tiara that adorns her hair now
is real, not just pretend.
And we fear our time as Mom and Dad
is changing in the end.
And it all seems so confusing,
do we want this now or not?
Our dreams have seen this bride for years,
but our hearts somehow forgot.
It's forgotten that in real life
with a bride there is a groom
And he whisks away your daughter
and this time has come so soon.
But as we stand here looking at her,
such a vision as a bride,
Our hearts make room to love the man
who's standing at her side.
We see the love he has for her,
we know it's good and true,
And we gladly give our dream to him,
for that's what parents do.
Thank you for sharing our joy!
