Order of Service
Commemorate the occasion properly with our quality Order of Service printing. Whether you’re celebrating a wedding, a christening or remembering a loved one at a funeral, let your guests know how the ceremony will run with a step by step programme.
An order of service booklet is also much more than just a schedule but a personal keepsake that guests can treasure long after the day is over.
Sometimes referred to as a ceremony programme, our order of service booklets ensure everyone knows what to expect during the day. They are commonly used for funerals, weddings and christenings to outline each stage of the ceremony including hymns that will be sung and words said by the minister. When printed to a high standard, order of service leaflets make beautiful keepsakes and can even be framed at a later date to commemorate the occasion.
Order of service booklets can also be used for much more than just detailing the steps of your service. You can include photos, poems, hymns, and messages to celebrate the occasion more deeply including thank you messages to those who have helped organise the event and details about the reasons behind your song and hymn choices. For those designing a wedding order of service, you may also want to include a run-down of your bridal party and details about the schedule of your reception later on in the day.
No matter the size of your occasion, we offer printed Order of Services from as few as 25 pieces. You can also choose from A4 and A5 order of service printing on 120gsm uncoated stock. For the cover, you can pick from a self-cover where the stock on the outside is the same as the inside, or for a more luxurious feel, we can include a slightly thicker cover of 250gsm uncoated stock.

An order of service is a step-by-step account of what your guests can expect during your ceremony. They are usually handed out to guests as they enter the venue or put onto seats for when they sit down. Usually in booklet form, they contain a printed order of service including speeches, hymns and messages they can expect to hear. They also make beautiful keepsakes for guests to take home and remember the occasion.
Our prices above are based upon an 8 Page order of service. This is usually enough space to get your beautiful design to make your special occasion special, if you need order of services with more pages please feel free to get in touch for a bespoke quote. We would be more than happy to help.
What to include in a printed order of service depends greatly on the kind of ceremony you are hosting. A general rule of thumb is to include a run-down of all the important events, speeches and hymns that guests can expect to hear and sing. You can also include the entrance music, introduction speeches, special readings, commendations, blessings and exit music. You should also include a cover that commemorates the occasion properly.
For funerals, many people choose to include a photo of the person they are remembering and the dates of their birth and death. Inside you can include details of the eulogy, images and memories of your loved one and a short message or epitaph. For weddings, the cover traditionally includes details of the place of marriage, the names of the bride and groom and the date and time of the ceremony. Inside you can explain the order of the ceremony including the marriage, prayers, signing of the register alongside thank you messages for those that played a special role in the day.
Order of service booklets can be designed in whatever way you see fit. Since it is there to commemorate your special occasion, it should reflect you and your partner on your big day or the loved one that you are remembering. Don’t be afraid to include lots of photos and messages to make the design more special to everyone that sees it. If you are designing a wedding order of service, you also might want to pick colours based on the theme of your day and match shades found on your bridesmaid dresses, in your bouquet or in the pocket squares of the grooms party.
