Order of Service
The order of service is a step-by-step account of what your guests can expect throughout the ceremony. Whether you're having a civil or religious ceremony, giving an order of service to your guests as they arrive will ensure everyone knows what to expect and doesn't sneak off at a crucial moment (ie - when you're exchanging your vows!) Some people like to include the complete breakdown of the service - including the words of the minister and response of the couple, whereas others use it only as a guide with the basic details of the service and perhaps printed words to the hymns or songs too. You can also include the order of the day (times for the rest of the days events).
