    I thought I would get a move on with all my wedding stationary, as we are not having a church wedding I don't think we need an order of service but I've been thinking about doing an "order of the day" so people know what will be happening when, also I don't want people putting up photo's of the wedding on fb and thought this would be the best way to get that message across. I have heard of people doing this sort of thing before but never seen one. Is this something that any other brides are doing/have done? If so what did you include? Also if you wouldn't mind could you add a photo to show me what you did with it?

    An order of the day may be useful as people often wonder when food will be served or what time the first dance will be. We are thinking of using a big chalk board to list this stuff out and prop it up by the door.

    We are using w3dp1cs so included the password in our invites and again may use another chalkboard to remind people on the day. X

    I never thought of doing a chalk board that might be a better idea, I've been drawing up individual order of the day (same sort of style as an order of service for a church wedding), I like the idea of having something guests can keep as a memento if they want, but also a bit worried it looks like a program for a play.
    So far it goes:
    1st page- Our names date and time of wedding and venue
    2nd page- Important people in our day and their roles (eg MOH MOB BM etc), I might drop this tho
    3rd & 4th page- timeline of events for the day and a request not to put photo's on social media
    5th page- a short poem and a thank you to the guests from the bride and groom

    Is there anything missing or anything there that shouldn't be?

    Hi MrsD2B, in relation to social media pics you can ask the registrar to mention this to guests before the ceremony. I'm not on FB so don't want others posting pics, and also don't want evening guests to see pics before they get to the reception so will definitely be asking the registrar to mention it, thinks it makes it a bit more formal too. We have a section in our ceremony pack where we state if we want this or not so might be worth checking yours too xx

    I would consider cutting it down so its only 4 pages. Then it would be just one double sided A4 sheet folded in half.
    I like the idea of having a page of who's who but don't think you need 2 pages of the timings. This should fit on 1 page I would have thought.
