3 Things You Should Do During Your Wedding Rehearsal

The opportunity to rehearse the different steps of your wedding ceremony is an important one. Because the wedding rehearsal tends to happen the evening before the wedding itself, all of your wedding party – including the ones who are traveling to attend – should be present. It would be a mistake to overlook the importance of this event, as it can make the day itself less stressful while also preventing potential delays. In addition to practicing at our venue, Texas Old Town also welcomes couples who want to have their rehearsal dinner with us! This can make the dinner more convenient, and offer you extra time to make sure everyone is ready for the day itself.

1. Make Sure EVERYONE Knows Where To Stand Before And During The Ceremony

When you think about where “everyone” should be during the wedding ceremony, remember that you need to account for more people than just the members of your wedding party. If you have live musicians for your ceremony, make sure you select the space where they can perform during the rehearsal. You should also make sure that in addition to having their positions set, your wedding party members and officiant all know where to gather before the event formally begins.

2. Practice The Procession Several Times

No matter how formal or informal your wedding event might be, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with the steps of the procession. Take the time to go through it several times, so there is no confusion on the day itself. You should also be prepared to work patiently with your ring bearer and flower girl, if you include them in your event.

3. Make Sure You Finish In Time To Start Your Rehearsal Dinner

While everyone at your wedding rehearsal should be invited to your rehearsal dinner, you may have several dinner guests  who are not a part of the rehearsal. Because of this, it is important to wrap up before the dinner begins, so these individuals are not left awkwardly waiting for you to arrive! If you want to give yourself extra time to run through everything on the eve of your wedding, hosting your dinner at Texas Old Town can make your evening easier, as you will not have to relocate to a second establishment to enjoy your group meal.
