There’s a rare breed of bride and groom out there who are super relaxed and don’t experience any nerves before their big day. For the rest of us, a wedding rehearsal is crucial to ensuring you can get hitched – without a hitch! Here’s a few great reasons why you should have a wedding rehearsal.
Great Practice for Wedding Newcomers
Not everybody is a veteran of countless weddings. If you’ve got members of your bridal party who haven’t been involved before, a wedding rehearsal gives them a real look at how the ceremony will unfold, where they need to stand, and what to expect from your big day. Think of your bridal party as your teammates for the ceremony – they play an important part in proceedings, and giving them a practice run makes everything run smoother on the day.
This is especially important if you’ve got children involved – think flower girls or cute little ring-bearers. Giving them a chance to act out their role beforehand will help greatly when the day comes.
Get to Know the Venue
You’ve no doubt seen your chosen venue before, but that doesn’t mean you know exactly how things will operate during the ceremony. Often, wedding venues can look quite different when you first visit them, compared to how they will look for the event. If you’re able to do a full wedding rehearsal with the venue set up, you’ll know exactly where to go, where to walk, where to stand, and it takes away a huge amount of nerves!
Relax with Close Friends and Family
Your actual wedding day can become a bit of a blur. You’ve got heaps of guests, family and friends all clamouring for a bit of your attention, and there’s not always a lot of time to relax. When you have a wedding rehearsal, you can also organise a pre-wedding dinner which gives you a great chance to relax and catch up with your closest family members and bridal party – without the crowds.
