It was necessary to Michelle & Drew that their guests were informed of the details of their wedding. A large percentage of their guests were coming from out of town. A very detailed itinerary welcomed them in their hotel room. It was filled with crucial times for the weekend, from the Friday evening welcome party to the Sunday farewell brunch. Being that the ceremony was roughly 30 minutes away, they offered transportation for their guests. The agenda also updated guests necessary information for provided transportation to the ceremony. A list of fun things to do in the Cleveland area was provided for those planning to make a whole weekend out of it.
Even the ceremony program provided guests with detailed information. Michelle & Drew realized that many of their guests had not attended a traditional Greek Orthodox wedding before. The program provided an explanation of the Service of the Betrothal and the Service of the Crowning, the two parts of the service. It also explains the bride’s brother’s role, who serviced as the Koumbaro, as he stood witness on behalf of the Orthodox Church during the exchange of rings and crowns.
I love how their wedding stationery suite tied their purple and gray color palette with fall outdoor imagery of tree branches.
