The service order is one of the essential parts of your wedding day. It’s a statement about which you are as a couple and your vision for the event, so it’s crucial to design it carefully.
Here are five tips for creating a practical design that communicates all those important messages without getting lost in unnecessary details:
Consider the overall theme of your service.
When thinking about your order of service, it’s essential to consider the overall theme of your event. What big picture do you want people to take away from this ceremony? Themes can be as simple as “we care about our community” or more complex like “our wedding is a celebration of love.”
Consider how much time and effort went into creating this theme and make sure that it resonates with everyone present in some way during the ceremony.
Choose your order of service font wisely.
Choosing the right font is one of the most important decisions when designing an order of service. Fonts should be easy to read and work in different sizes and languages. Choosing a bold font for hyperlinks might look great in a print version of your order but will probably be hard to read on a Smartphone screen or tablet device.
It’s also essential for customers and staff members to provide services at an event! The same rule applies: choose fonts that are readable from all angles and across different eras, cultures, and languages.
Be mindful of the content and context in which you use each word or phrase.
When choosing the words and phrases you’ll use in your order of service, you must be mindful of the content and context in which you use each word or phrase. If a word or phrase doesn’t make sense within that context, it will probably not be effective for your audience. For example:
- Use “you” instead of “you’re” when referring back to yourself as a speaker (e.g., “You are welcome”). This will give off a more personal tone than using “you” alone would do because it acknowledges how much attention is being paid by whoever else might be listening as well (i.e., both sides).
- Use specific numbers whenever possible (e.g., 1 person) rather than generic ones like “everyone.” This gives readers an idea about how many people are present at any given time, so they know whether more chairs might be available; if everyone has RSVPed beforehand, then there should already be enough seats set up waiting for them when they arrive!
Don’t over-design — keep it simple!
This is one of the most critical aspects of designing an order of service. You must be careful to do it with only a little text and pictures or add too many different elements to make your design unique. Keep it simple and keep things focused on the message you want to deliver instead of creating something that’s just cool looking or flashy (or both).
Order of service design– a guide for those seeking inspiration or instruction!
Order of service design is a creative process, and it’s essential to consider the overall theme of your service. If you plan to do something formal and traditional, using traditional fonts like Baskerville or Goudy Old Style is good. But if you want something more modern, try using Helvetica Neue or Century Gothic.
As you design your order of service font, be mindful of the context in which you may use each word or phrase:
- Does this word mean anything?
- Does it make sense without any other context (or vice versa)?
- Is there another way to say this same thing better than just saying “order” here?
These questions will help ensure that every line in your order looks great when read aloud by guests waiting patiently behind them while they look forward anxiously through their glasses (not mine).

Remember that while it may seem like a lot of work, once it’s ready, your guests will be impressed by your creativity and professionalism!
