4 things to consider when planning the Wedding Rehearsal

Your wedding is a big production - we're not telling you something you don't already know. While there are no trial runs for the marriage, the COUPLE gets at least one trial run for the wedding itself. 

Who, what, where and when?
WHO: For the rehearsal itself, only people who have any kind of role need to be invited. That includes the best man, groomsmen, ushers, ring bearers, flower girls, the bridesmaids, anyone reading or singing during the ceremony, the officiant (probably), and of course, the radiant bride and her groom. If key players are missing from the rehearsal, this may increase the likelihood for something to go wrong on the wedding day.I

WHAT: A wedding rehearsal is just like any other rehearsal of an event or performance; it's an opportunity for the wedding party to congregate and walk through the ceremony as it will occur on the day of the wedding. The wedding officiant will act as director, and lead you through. From the procession of the flower girls, the arrival of the bride, the walk down the aisle by the father-of-the-bride, to the vows that you will have to recite.
WHERE: The optimum place to hold your rehearsal would be the actual location of your wedding ceremony, but be sure that whatever location you choose, you have enough space for all the guests to move around comfortably and go through the motions.

WHEN: Some couples choose to have the rehearsals a week before but I will suggest one or two days before the wedding as children as well as adults can be forgetful.
