Some people choose to include pictures of the members of their wedding party, as this makes your wedding order of service an even better keepsake of the day. However, this is quite an informal choice and will take up a lot of room.


Get creative

Of course, you don't have to stick to a traditional order if this doesn't suit you.

Have your guests going down the aisle in any order that you think works best for you.
