The Wedding Rehearsal

The wedding rehearsal is an integral part of wedding planning.

The rehearsal is your moment to put everything into practice so that everyone involved is familiar with their roles before the big day. Typically the ceremony officiant will lead the rehearsal, and it usually takes place the afternoon before the wedding day.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions at your rehearsal or to go through the motions several times until everyone is clear on where they should be and when they should be there. And most of all, don’t forget to have fun. More than likely the groomsmen will be cracking jokes and not paying attention. (Boys!) They’ll rely on the bridesmaids for help later.

Your officiant and / or wedding coordinator will help guide you through the process, and the rehearsal is a great time to take a deep breath, have fun, and remember that you and your fiance are on your way to starting your new life together.

And since you’ll have all of your important people in one place, it’s also a good time to distribute copies of your important people contact list and wedding day schedule.

As you walk through your wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, remember to take it all in and enjoy the moment with your loved ones. You’re almost there!
