Your wedding is just a week away, wow! Time flies when you’re having fun, and that’s just what the wedding planning process should be! Now that most all your details are set and everything is a go, you only have a few minor things left! Wedding rehearsal being one of them.
Wedding rehearsals are actually a North American tradition where a “run through” of the wedding is performed making sure that everyone knows their jobs and expectations so there aren’t any hiccups when it comes to the actual day. The rehearsals are usually one or two days prior to the actual wedding. Wedding coordinators will run your rehearsal and guide you through everything you need to know and just how to do it!
Rehearsal is a vital part of the big day! This is when your entire wedding party will get a real idea of how your big day is actually going to go. The guests of your rehearsal are usually close family and those who come together to form your wedding party, and of course their guests.
If any of your wedding party will be wearing new shoes or shoes that may be difficult for them to walk in, be sure that they bring these so they can get some practice time in!
Rehearsals aren’t just for practicing though, they are also great for everyone getting to meet each other and become acquainted prior to your wedding day.
While rehearsals are recommended for multiple reasons, they are by no means necessary. One perk to having a wedding rehearsal is that they sometimes eliminate any “day of” jitters that may cause you to panic last minute. You want to walk down the aisle knowing exactly what you’re doing and where you’re going, not to mention that you want to be able to live in the moment without any sort of wedding day anxiety. All eyes are on you, this is your day!
A fun fact about weddings is that the bride traditionally stands on the groom’s left because back in the day in Anglo Saxon England, the men had to protect their beloved wife and so they would stand to their left in order for them to have full range function of their right (sword) arm!
