Q. What’s the difference between a flat order of service and a folded or booklet order of service?
A. The main difference between these types of order of service products is the style and amount of information you wish to be included. If you just want to include a brief overview of your ceremony then a flat order of service is what you need.
Q. What should I include in my flat order of service?
A. Because you are working with less space than a booklet or a folded order of service, we recommend that you stick to the basics: welcome message, names of the happy couple, names of the Hymns, readings or poems and a thank you message.
Q. What size should my flat order of service card be?
A. There is no set standard size for a flat order of service card. This is because it’s entirely personal and it depends on how much information and imagery you wish to include in your order of service.
Q. How should I layout my flat order of service?
A. You should layout your flat order of service in the same sequence the events occur throughout the day. Your flat order of service should include all of the information necessary for the guests to be able to follow and know what is happening next in your ceremony.
Q. What size can my flat order of service be?
