I highly recommend a rehearsal for the couple, the bridal party, readers or others with specific roles.
It’s ideal to hold the rehearsal as close to the day and time of the wedding as possible.
Holding a rehearsal allows everyone to know where they’ll be standing, what they’ll be doing and how the ceremony will flow. It also provides an opportunity for people to practice their particular role and feel comfortable with what’s required.
A rehearsal also helps to calm any nerves and can give people time to ask any questions they may have about how or when something will take place on the day.
