Do we really need a Wedding Rehearsal?

This is a question that is asked by nearly every couple.

The answer is pretty easy…… you don’t NEED a wedding rehearsal, but here are few reasons you might WANT a wedding rehearsal.

Having a run through at the location of your ceremony eases the nerves.

If you have young children in your bridal party – a wedding rehearsal gives them a sense of direction and the confidence they need on the day.

There’s no worrying about whether the song you’ve chosen to walk down the aisle is long enough – because you’ve tested it.

If you time your wedding rehearsal correctly, you can anticipate where the sun will be on the day.

You’ll know when it’s going to be your turn to speak.

You can fix any little issues that arise.

This is the time think about logistics:

Who will be in charge of putting the chairs out?

Who will give the signal that we’re ready to make our entrance?

Which of my bridesmaids should walk first?

When you reach the front of the aisle, who will I give my flowers to?

What does my dad do after he walks me down the aisle?

Who will be responsible for the flower girl?

And the list goes on………

On the other hand, if you’re the type of couple who likes to fly by the seat of your pants, then don’t worry about it.

Let’s just play it by ear, go with the flow and surprise ourselves.
