- Mrs. Spaniel
- 8 years ago
- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
Weekend before the wedding: Bachelor/bachelorette parties (his in Vegas for the weekend; mine is local and only one night)
Thursday before the wedding: rehearsal in the early afternoon, rehearsal dinner at night
Friday before the wedding: mehndi (henna) party for immediate families and bridesmaids
Saturday night: wedding
Is this schedule just too packed? If you were a bridesmaid in a wedding with this many events in seven days, would you bail on at least one of them? 😉 Everyone is in or near Los Angeles, but of course that doesn’t mean that there isn’t an hour drive for at least some of them. The only alternative I thought of was to have the bachelor/-ette parties earlier on (like a month before) and/or doing the rehearsal on Friday morning followed by the mehndi and skipping the rehearsal dinner, but FI’s mom really seemed to want to do the rehearsal dinner.
