Having a wedding rehearsal is a fun thing to do on the day before your wedding. It also should be mandatory if you have more than one attendant on each side. However some locations charge a fee to host this service so please ask what they are in advance. This way there are no surprises.
Should you consider the possibility of forgoing the rehearsal there are some special situations that would allow you to do so. Here are some guidelines that you can follow should you choose this option:
- If you're having a wedding with just yourselves or only one attendant each.
- If you've been married before and are familiar with the drill.
- If you have responsible competent attendants that can go off of verbal instruction.
- If you begin the ceremony standing in place.
- If you elope.
