So here’s the thing we’re getting married at my future father in law’s backyard and the rental co. is dropping everything off the day before the wedding. We really need the entire day to get the tables, chairs, decorations and everything set up. I don’t think we’ll have time for a rehearsal with everything going on. Is it neccesary to have one or can I get by without one? Any suggestion??? Thank you 🙂

Our DOC said our wedding party was small enough and that we didn’t need one. As long as you have someone to direct traffic, you’ll be fine.

If it were me, I’d try to make a few minutes for a runthrough. You never know what you might have overlooked. At my sister’s wedding, we didn’t realize until the rehearsal that we had no one to walk my mom down the aisle (it hadn’t really dawned on us that dad would be busy with the bride)! Luckily my Fiance (then boyfriend, but we all knew where it was headed) was there and he had a tux, so he stepped in, and everything was fine. But if we hadn’t realized it til 10 minutes before the ceremony, I think my sister would’ve been a lot more frazzled right before walking down the aisle.

you should just talk thru it.
if you have kids, help them practice walking.
but you probably dont need to run thru the whole thing in the space.

We’re not actually rehearsing, just talking about what is going to happen with everyone.

I think you’d be completely fine without one. As long as you’re familiar with the order of the ceremony, I don’t think it’s absolutely necessary to physically walk through each step.
