- Wedding: November 2013
I am pretty torn about about the whole rehearsal and rehearsal dinner is going to happen.
Fiance and I live about an hour from the ceremony/reception location. Bridesmaids and groomsmen live anywhere from 2hrs up to 6hrs away from it.
Fiance and I are going to stay in a hotel room at the location the night before the wedding. It would not be feasable to ask our bridesmaids/groomsmen to drive all the way there for the rehearsal dinner the night before, because it would be a 1-2hr drive there and a 1-2hr drive home for them. As well, the location is used for weddings alot so we definitely would not be able to get in there to rehearse that night, because likely someone will be in there.
So, my thoughts are for us to have a rehearsal dinner with family/wedding party the weekend before.
Then, we can have the wedding party show up to the location at 9am and we can rehearse there at the site that morning, then us girls can go downstairs to get our hair/makeup done. Wedding @ 1:30p.
Does that sound okay? It’s not exactly going “in order” but, it’s the only thing I can think to do?
