Wedding Order of Service

If you are following our Checklist, then you have just chosen your hymns/songs and readings for your ceremony. Now you need to put it all together into your order of service and finalize this with your officiant.

Your officiant may provide you with the order of service structure as it may vary depending on where you are in the world. Ask them about this when you confirm that they will be the officiant at your wedding.

To help you get started however, we have put together a template which is a popular structure for the ceremony. Feel free to copy/paste/edit/rearrange etc.
