Hi everyone! I've received a few enquiries recently about Order of Service cards and the best way to format them. In my opinion, the style you go for will very much depend on the amount of detail and wording you would like to show.
We offer four different styles;
- A single flat card - Cover on its own - A double-fold card - Cover with page inserts
I've explained each option below, which I hope will give you a better idea on which style to order!
1) Single Flat Card
This card is perfect if you would only like to show a few details. One side can show your names, a Thank You message and/or the names of your wedding party. The other side can show the title of your ceremony songs and readings, but there won't be room to show the lyrics or words from the readings.
2) Cover Only
With a cover, you can spread out the wording a little more. You can show the titles of your songs/readings, but there wouldn't be enough room for the lyrics.
A cover also gives you the option of printing your own inserts at home, which is useful if you're on a budget. Keep in mind that you may need to hole punch these in and then tie together with ribbon.
3) Double-Fold Card
Double-fold cards are really popular, as you can show a lot of wording, and also have a really sleek design! They're small enough to fit into handbags and guests love to take them away as little keepsakes.
On these cards, you can show a thank you message, the names of your wedding party, your schedule, and service details. They're ideal if you only need to show the lyrics of 1 or 2 songs.
4) Cover with inserts
An Order of Service booklet is perfect if you have over two songs and readings in your ceremony and would like to show the lyrics and words for each of them. You can have one, two, three or four pages in your booklet, and most people wouldn't need more than four.
When putting the design together, I always ensure that all the content is carefully laid out. It's important to me that you have a beautiful and clean design which your guests will find easy to read and follow.
