When we booked our church, we were told to go in the Thursday evening before our Saturday wedding for the rehearsal. The vicar said for the rehearsal to just be me and H2B. Is this normal? I've been part of a wedding where everyone in the bridal party/who had a 'job' was there so they knew what they were doing and when?
I think it's different for different places I'm sure if you speak to the vicar they would probs be fine with having others there if not you can all get together the day or night before and go through everything then x
I agree with Laura, talk to your vicar and see what he says x
Hi I agree usually the wedding party is involved:)
Our vicar said just us but I told him I wanted the page boys and small bridesmaid there so they would know what it would be like and would be less likely to panic on the morning. He agreed with me but it just needed a conversation x
Each church is different. Maybe you can ask to go a couple of weeks before for your wedding party to familliurise themselves.
Are vicar has said the same just needs the two of us
Our vicor wants the whole wedding party there including best man and father of the bride.
Would usually be anyone involved in the marriage service x
our wedding party were all requested. people need to know where they need to go etc so it makes sense to have everyone. definately speak to the vicar.
Our daughters christening was the same day as our wedding so we had godparents at the rehearsal aswell but you are right it is usually everyone that plays a part my bridesmaids were there as well as the 2 best men x
Our vicar has recommended the same (just the two of us) but is happy with others coming too x
My sisters she brought the bridal party and all we did was walk down the isle. Rest of it was the vicar talking about vowes etc
We have to have our parents bridesmaid and ushers at ours x
I help out at a church and each vicar does it differently. Some prefer it to be just the bride and groom so there's not any distractions. Others prefer the whole bridal party so everyone knows what they're doing. Completely up to the vicar. If your not happy just have a chat
Got our reherseal 3 weeks before the wedding and we got told we can have who we want there. It was originally just going to be my bridesmaids and best man there but now we're doing the menu tasting the same day so our mum's are coming as well
We had the rehearsal the Thursday before the Saturday. And you are right - We were asked to bring all the bridal party and everyone who had a job to do on the day x
We've been told just us two and the maid of honour and best man and that's all who's needed, just someone else to remember what needs doing x
My friend had a church wedding and the week before the whole bridal party had to go. We had to work out order for going down the aisle etc, who was in what seats x
When we had ours we had to have best man, bridesmaid, flower girl and ushers. We only had two ushers turn up but we had people taking notes etc. We did a full rehearsal
Our Reverend asked it to just be me and OH. He says when there are lots of other people there it causes disruptions and nervous giggles.
