    Hi folks,

    We're having a civil ceremony so no singing etc although we will have a reading of sorts and having an order of service didn't even occur to me until my mum mentioned it the other day.

    Im not really sure if we need them? For the other civil brides out there, what are you guys doing?

    Seems a bit strange to me about having a list to give out which will essentially only says, 'vows, reading, signing of register'.

    Mum said people might like to have the reading/poem written down so they can read it but I think I'd rather people listened to it rather than read it before it happens if that makes sense? Xx

    Were not having any readings - its not really our thing so were not bothering with an order of service.

    I only thought it was mainly for Church services? But I might be wrong lol xx

    No need for a OOS for civil ceremonies, they're generally for church weddings where guests need to know responses and the right place for them. Also the hymns words.

    We have made "orders of the day" with a twist, it has what is going on and when for the whole day, and some info about the musicians and the pieces chosen and about the guest book etc.

    Love yours Mrs K! They will give people a laugh whilst they are waiting! Are you giving these out on the day or did you send with the invites? I know they are usually given out on the day but as they have a timeline of the day on I was thinking of sending before so people can make travel arrangements x

    Emma, are you mentioning both venues in the invite? We are and then in the pocket having a directions insert.

    Is that a possibility?

    Yeah I am having both venues on the invite. I guess people know they will need to travel and could guess what time they will need book taxis etc so it shouldn't be a problem x

    Emma, Kayleigh and Baker, I had a quick look on the thread that Whovian mentioned her Order of the Day on. She ordered them from [email protected] Hope that's helpful

    Mrs K2b I love yours too! Haven't really thought about doing anything like this for ours, maybe we should lol xx
