The day before your wedding can be full of anticipation and excitement, but this is not a day where you can simply step back and wait for your wedding day to arrive. After all, the evening before your celebration is typically when the wedding rehearsal takes place, and you should be prepared to make the most of your opportunity to practice the steps of your ceremony. All of your bridesmaids and groomsmen should be present for this event – even party members who come from out of town should be present when the practice session is a mere evening before the wedding. You can also ask your ushers to attend, as well as your officiant. Once this practice is complete, you can unwind with your rehearsal dinner, something you can actually count on us to host!
Take Time To Rehearse Your Ceremony Several Times
If you only leave yourself with time for a single rehearsal of your ceremony, you miss opportunities to make adjustments and corrections that might be required. Go into your rehearsal with the expectation that you will need to run through everything several times. While the procession may seem simple, the pressure of making your special day truly special can lead to distraction, and mistakes. Multiple practices will also allow you to consider changes to your procession, if you decide you want to make any.
Make Sure All The Right People Are Present
Having everyone present will make the rehearsal easier, and it eliminates the need to run a groomsman or bridesmaid through their steps on the day of your wedding. Planning your rehearsal the evening before your wedding date will ensure that participants arriving from out of town will be present, and it can be a great way to bring your bridesmaids together if you plan to spend the night as a group before you start preparations on your actual wedding day.
Of course, life sometimes intrudes on plans, and you may find that someone is simply unable to attend the rehearsal. Fortunately, you have sixteen hours of access to your venue, and generously sized bridal and groom’s suites. This means you should have an easy time quickly walking someone through their steps before your ceremony.
Enjoying Your Rehearsal Dinner!
You should look forward to your rehearsal dinner as a chance to thank your family members and close friends for supporting your efforts to plan your wedding. You should also take advantage of this as your last chance to see your partner before the ceremony. Because we can welcome guests who want to plan their rehearsal dinner at our site, you will not have to work out a plan to move your wedding party to a different location for dinner!
