Conduct Your Own Wedding Rehearsal

One thing that can substantially raise the fee charged by your wedding officiant is the need to have him or her present at your rehearsal. This is a justifiable expense, for oftentimes the officiant is giving up the chance to perform another wedding during the time that he or she is conducting your rehearsal. It is often an expense that the bride and groom don’t need to incur however, for it’s pretty easy to facilitate a rehearsal without having your officiant in attendance.
Running your own wedding rehearsal may seem a daunting task, especially if you don’t think you are the “manager” type. However, there are some simple steps you can do to make it a breeze. First of all, it is assumed that you have worked with your officiant and have received a written script of your ceremony. (If you haven’t, then you don’t know what is going to be said on the most important day of your life, so I recommend you find another officiant fast!) So, armed with your trusty wedding script, follow the steps below and you’ll have a practice session that runs smoothly (and get everyone to the rehearsal dinner in less than 45 minutes)!
If you are having your ceremony at the same site as your reception, then the site might provide you with a coordinator to run your rehearsal at no additional charge. These folks are invaluable-they know their venue and how things flow smoothly. Rely on them-they might even run the rehearsal for you if you give them the script.
It’s better for you to turn the management of the rehearsal over to a friend or relative who is, quite frankly, just a tad bossy. Choose someone who is assertive enough to get folks to pay attention, but not so overbearing as to be off-putting to your wedding party members……..continue www.elegantbouquets.org/conductyourownweddingrehearsal.htm
