Wedding newspapers are the new, beautiful and creative alternative to the traditional Order of Service. These newspapers are filled with content which is custom designed to you and your partner and can include information such as a timeline of your day, readings and vows, the menu, introductions to your wedding party, photographs, personal stories and even bespoke crosswords to test how well your guests really know you!
The best thing about wedding newspapers is that they are completely customisable. For example, adding a custom designed wedding monogram or logo is the perfect way to personalise the newspaper and tie it together with your invitations or other wedding stationery. You can also add your own photographs and they're a fantastic opportunity to showcase all those lovely pictures from your engagement shoot (if you've had one).
Wedding newspapers are also great for your friends and family who will love having something physical, which, in addition to giving them all the information they need to know about the day, they can then take home, keep and cherish long after the wedding is over.
For many couples, the day can pass by incredibly quickly so having a memento of the vows, menu, stories and all of the other personalised touches in the form of a wedding newspaper will give you something special you can keep forever.
How it works
Typically, wedding newspapers are 8-pages long, including the front and back cover. If you'd like additional pages for your newspaper, please let us know and we can provide a full quote for you.
They measure 29cm by 38cm (a traditional tabloid size newspaper) and they're printed on 55gsm traditional newsprint, for that authentic newspaper feel.
Printing costs vary depending on the number of units you'd like. We normally recommend 1 for every 2 guests. However, all of this is adaptable to your requirements.
Quantity options available are: 10, 20, 30, 50, 70, 100, 150, 200
Our process is very collaborative and we always look to ensure the design we create fits within the style of your day. We can take inspiration from your Pinterest board (if you have one) or your save the dates and invitations. However, we're also more than happy to create a style from scratch for you too, from moodboards through to finalised and ready-to-print design.

We absolutely adore wedding newspapers and some couples love the process more than when they created their wedding invitations... then again, reminiscing about great memories together and with your friends is bound to be enjoyable!
