Valuable Tips For Planning A Wedding Rehearsal
The idea of the wedding rehearsal is to go over all the logistical details of your wedding ceremony. Entering, exiting, which way to face, handling the rings, and anything else you need to know about your wedding ceremony is discussed.
Going over all these minute details in advance will
without question make your wedding ceremony run smoothly.
Expect to rehearse the wedding ceremony at least three times to be
sure everyone is comfortable with what they are supposed to be
doing. The first walk through is usually quite amusing, as everyone
is stumbling and fumbling about - donít worry about that. It
will get better each time until the final time is perfect.
Who should attend the rehearsal?
Everyone who is involved in your wedding ceremony should be there. The parents of the bride and groom, the wedding party, and the officiant should attend.
When should the wedding rehearsal be held?
It is held the day before usually, but if there is a scheduling conflict you can plan it for few days before, but no more than that. You need everyone to remember their roles and have them fresh in their minds.
Where should the wedding rehearsal be held?
and ideal place to have it is in the same location you plan to have
wedding. You want to be able to show the everyone their
exact locations, without them having to guess on your wedding
day. If this is not possible, then use a friend or family member's
backyard or any other similar type of open space.
Traditional calls for a dinner after the rehearsal. The rehearsal dinner is much more relaxed, and should include the parents of the bride and groom, the wedding party - including any spouses or significant others, and the parents of any children in the wedding party. Traditionally, the groom's parents pay for the rehearsal dinner, and this is of course not set in stone. The location for the dinner can be anywhere you want it to be, from a backyard barbeque to a nice restaurant. The purpose of the dinner is for the wedding party to spend time together in a relaxed situation, so choose a location you are comfortable with.
