A GUIDE TO HELPING YOUR WEDDING GUESTS
A guide to ensuring that your wedding guests are fully informed throughout your wedding day; from the order of service at your ceremony to the order of your entire celebration.
Your wedding day will not only be remembered by you both in the future, but it will be remembered by your wedding guests too! In order to ensure they have a great time at your wedding and have all of the information they need before, during and after the event, we’ve created a handy article to make sure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to helping your wedding guests.
The order of the day
We’ve already covered what to include on your wedding invitations, so your guests should be fully aware of the information they’ll need prior to your wedding, but it might be nice to display the order of the day at the entrance to your wedding, so that guests know what is in store throughout the day – and night.
- 1:30pm – Welcome!
- 2pm – The ‘I dos’
- 2:30pm – Bubbly and photos
- 4pm – Eat, drink and be merry!
- 6pm – Toast the happy couple
- 7pm – Party time!
- Carriages at midnight
You could also include things like the cutting of the cake, the first dance or the bouquet toss, if you plan on doing it!
There are several unique ways to display the order of your day at your wedding. This could be designed to fit in with your theme, so if you are having a rustic feel to your day, it could be displayed on a wooden board, alternatively it could match your other wedding stationary, such as your invitations and place cards.
Order of service
Whether you’re planning a church wedding civil wedding ceremony at a licensed wedding venue, your guests might appreciate a printed order of service card to look at during your nuptials. Order of Service cards let guests know what is coming next; from the vows, to readings and even the words to certain hymns if you’re having a religious wedding ceremony.
