Unless you have a HUGE bridal party and a really complicated ceremony 1 hour will be fine.  I had six bridesmaids and groomsmen, one reader, and the officiant was my uncle who got a one day designation to marry us and had never performed a wedding before. I ran the whole rehearsal and we were done in less than an hour.

We are planning for 45 min to an hour for the rehearsal. We have 6 people on each side, Flower Girl, Ring Bearer, two JBMS, and a Junior Bride.

We had 4 on each side, plus two readers, and we took 2 hours.  I had planned it for 2 hours so that was fine, but I hadn’t expected it to take that long.  There were a lot of people at the rehearsal, we did not have a typical venue, and it was just difficult to corral everyone.  I think it’s always best to plan for things to take longer than you think they will.

An hour is what I always recommend to clients. Plan on everyone being at least 10 mins late. It seems like every rehearsal I do, there’s always one person that shows up 30 mins late, and then we have 30 mins to do the rehearsal, which is plenty of time to go through it at least once.

I had 6 on each side, 3 readers, a flower girl and two ring bearers and we went through everything multiple times in 1 hour.  You should be fine on time!

Our coordinator rocks out on the rehearsal and has indicated that we might be done in as little as half an hour. We have our officiant, us (obviously), 4 in the bridal party, 4 in the groomal party, and 2 readers – no flower girl or ring bearer.

our rehearsal was about 30 mins.  That may even be a stretch and amazing considering most of our party including our officiant hadn’t even seen the place!
