An Order of Service…some considerations

The Bride Addict on “You & Your Wedding” wrote …

I am having an order of service, I asked the question to my nearest and dearest and they said although no hymns, there are readings and they would all like to take it away with them as a reminder of the day. xxx

For some reason the Order of Service can cause a bride (and groom) the greatest headache … probably because it includes so many people and so many things that MUST be done on that special day and of course, not to forget it is the most important part of the Wedding – after all you are getting married.  To ease the stress a little, I have put together a list of items that can be included, the essential and the optional.

Let us start by defining what an Order of Service is and what its purpose is.  An Order of Service is a step-by-step account of what your guests can expect throughout the ceremony, whether it is a civil service or a religious ceremony.  Giving an order of service to your guests as they arrive will ensure everyone knows what to expect.READ MORE
