The most important thing to remember about your humanist ceremony is that it should be exactly the way you want it. So if you’re totally chilled and like whatever, man, you probably won’t want an Order of Ceremony. On the other hand, if you’re the kind of person who sets goals and can recite most of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People you certainly will. You may even have written it already.
What it does is allow your guests to see the running order; who’s speaking, what happens when, what the readings are and – if there’s a blessing or a song to join in with – the words they’ll need to speak or sing.
