Our 7 favourite wedding order of service booklets
Words by Utterly Printable
Time to start thinking about your wedding order of service! The wedding ceremony is the most important part of the day, it is the main reason that your guests have travelled for miles, cleared their calendars months in advance and spent hard earned cash on finding the perfect outfit. From the moment they arrive at the ceremony venue there will be a buzz of excitement in the air.
Before the couple arrive, guests will spend time catching up with old friends, finding the perfect seat to get the first glimpse of the dress and reading through the wedding ceremony booklet to see if they can remember the hymns from their primary school days. Whilst it may not seem like it when you’re in the planning stages, the wedding ceremony booklets are one of the most important pieces of stationery on the day. Nearly every one of your guests will flick through it at some point and depending on how late you are to the alter there is a high chance that many will have read it cover to cover.

If you already know exactly what you want to say but can’t decide on which design will best suit your day, then scroll down to have a look at our favourite wedding ceremony booklets. Here we go!
Our favourite order of service templates right now:
Marine wreath cover
Wedding booklets with watercolour floral wreaths are always a popular choice. Romantic and pretty they will look gorgeous when laid out amongst the wooden pews of the church you will be saying your vows in. The two-toned green hues with a splash of yellow are neutral and earthy and will fit with most spring or summer colour palettes. If your florist is decorating the ceremony venue for you then make sure they include plenty of greenery to match. We also have some beautiful floral wedding invitations to match this design.
Thick burgundy classic
For a more manly order of service booklet, or one suitable for a winter wedding then this is the perfect design for you. Burgundy is a popular colour for cold weather weddings and will likely feature in the colour palettes of most winter ceremonies. This booklet retains the classic vibe by remaining simple and clean cut but adds colour to your day with the thick border. If burgundy isn’t the colour for you then take a look through our collection as we have plenty more tones to offer.
White on pink traditional
This soft and feminine wedding order of service is perfect for any couple planning on including blush pink in their day, that could be through the use of divine British roses, the colour of the bridesmaid dresses or the bow ties on the groomsmen. It remains traditional with beautiful cartography and a thin border line but adds a touch of romance to the room.
If you and your significant other love the ocean or are getting married by the sea, then this could be the perfect wedding ceremony program for you. Perhaps it brings back memories of favourite childhood holidays or maybe you were lucky enough to grow up next to the ocean. Whatever your reasoning, this order of service template will look gorgeous in the hands of you guests whilst they await your arrival.
Side by side
This wedding booklet allows you to make your ceremony truly personal by including two favourite photographs of yourselves for guests to see. Whilst it breaks all the old wedding ceremony, rules it is popular amongst couples creating their own traditions and leading the way into a new era of modern wedding stationery. The day is, after all, about the couple getting married and everyone is there to celebrate your love for one another, so including personal snaps throughout the day should really be a no brainer.
Dark ochre monogrammed
Perfect for an autumn or winter wedding, this deep orange wedding ceremony booklet adds atmosphere to your venue. This colour will match a palette containing other dark tones as well as the metallics, white and cream. The beautiful cursive writing and monogram at the top makes it elegant and traditional but the colour keeps it from being plain. Impress your guests with this stylish booklet and continue the theme through the rest of your wedding stationery to give the day a sense of luxury and sophistication.
Spring wedding wreath
This springtime inspired floral wreath is colourful and intricate and is perfect for any spring or early summer wedding, no matter the venue.
