Not sure whether or not to have a ceremony rehearsal?
Who does What? When? How? - Here are some points to consider.
A ceremony rehearsal is generally held the week of the wedding. I have held them as early as two weeks prior. Most of the time it is held at the venue. Venue staff, your wedding planner, your officiant, or even you can lead your rehearsal. Often it’s a combination.
The rehearsal is optional. Yet, while not “mandatory”, it is highly recommended having one and don’t forget to include your officiant/minister.
You, your fiancé, your family, your bridal party will know what to expect and what to do during your ceremony. They become familiar with your venue. Your ceremony can run smoother with questions answered and with a practice run through. Ok – so maybe a couple of practice runs might be needed.
Who goes first down the aisle? Who sits where? Who stands where? Is your bridal party going to stand up front or be seated in the front row? What if your ceremony is outside and needs to be moved indoors last minute? So many details large and small, and those you might not have thought about, are covered at the rehearsal.
A ceremony rehearsal can help everyone feel more comfortable, get to know each other better and be more prepared for your Special Day.
It can add to your Wedding Day running smoother and on time.
And … you can get those other last minute wedding details off your plate with your bridal party and/or venue.
A Ceremony rehearsal helps ensure that your dream vision for your ceremony becomes your reality.
Celebrate Your Love & Your Special Day in Your Own Special Way!
