I would love opinions. Our wedding party is scattered all about in regards to where they live and our venue isn’t close for any of us (anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours away). And because our party is so scattered there really isn’t a location central that i can imagine to do a pretend walk down….I mean it’s pretty straightforward isn’t it?
I will practice at home with my daughter (who is the flower girl)
Thanks in advance 🙂

No of course you don’t have to have one! I didn’t have a rehearsal – I didn’t want to unneccessarily take any more of anyone’s time than needed. Also, I figure that people can sort out how to walk down an aisle 😉 Which they all did. My DOC did run over it with them right before the wedding – I think it took about 12 seconds.
We did something kind of weird the night before – we weren’t together! H was at the hotel where we were having the reception and spending the wedding night, so he had dinner and drinks there with his best man, best man’s gf, and a good friend from out of town. I stayed at our apartment that night, and had dinner with my family and out of town guests (maybe 20 people) at the restaurant/bar where H and I met. It was really fun! It wasn’t an “official” or hosted thing – I just put the word out that if you wanted to meet me for dinner, here’s where I’d be. It was nice for each of us to see our own people and spend some extra time with them.

julies1949: If we did have a rehersal our officiant wouldn’t be there. We were already told that. and yes i meant to say do we have to have a rehersal…

oneofthesethings: I meant to put rehersal/rehersal dinner but it won’t let me edit now…
I feel the same way, it would be more of an inconvience and time consuming for everyone.
we also are not spending the night together. We are both taking a hotel room that night because we both need a room to get ready in the night day..lol. we haven’t planned out details if others are staying with us or not yet..

mindy_pindy: We are having a small wedding in the city, with family traveling about an hour away. We aren’t going to have one because 1. It’s less than 40 people so honestly what is there to practice; 2. Most people are driving the day of wedding, so I’m not asking my famiy to drive into city two days in a row; 3. We want one last night together, without hosting anyone, before the big day.
