Gone are the days when a wedding order of service was just a simple itinerary of your big day. These days, it’s a fusion of fun and fancy design, making it the perfect keepsake for your guests to take home. 

The purpose of the modern-day order of service is still very much the same as it was– to keep your guests in the loop during the marriage ceremony, and other civil or religious ceremonies. But the look, feel and quality of the booklet has advanced to a whole new level, with people getting more and more creative with design.

To give you a taste of what we mean, we’ve rounded up a handful of drool-worthy order of service designs, each one defying convention to sit pretty in a league of their own…


This quirky, illustrated timeline design provides an at-a-glance break down of the day’s events. The idea may be simple, but it’s oh-so effective! This quirky wedding stationery idea is right up our street, and extremely trendy.




The lay out of this order of service reminds us of a menu. It takes all the ingredients that make up the day and serves them up in a cool, compact form. What a treat! Create your own using an A4 poster.





How to better to guide your guests through your big day than with a few well-placed prompts! Adding a bag of confetti or a handful of tissues to your Order of Service is a great way to encourage engagement. All you need to hold them in place are a few fun stickers or a bit of string.
