Who all would be in the procession?  Mothers, fathers,  attendants, then you?

renwoman:  I think, as long as you do not have a bunch of little kids in the party or a 20+ party, that you can get by without one. I am sure that every one there has been in or at least to a wedding. Just make sure to discuss how everything should be with the officiant before hand and make sure everyone knows where to stand before hand.

renwoman:  Our venue has another wedding the day before ours so we aren’t doing an an-site rehearsal.  I also don’t want to ask bridal party to take a day off from work if they can avoid it.  Instead, we are asking our JP to come to the house we are having our rehearsal dinner, and do a quick run though (and are inviting him to the dinner). I have a large bridal party so a rehearsal of some kind is definitely needed.

Do you have a day-of attendant from your venue?  If you give them a list of who walks down when, in addition to running through it wherever you can beforehand, that should be fine.

We didn’t have a rehearsal at all. And we had a 3 year old as a flower girl. It was no big thing at all that we didn’t rehearse. We just told everyone what Oder they would walk in and who they walked with (if anyone). It all went perfectly 🙂

I’m no expert, but wouldn’t the mother of the groom go, then your maid of honor, then you & your father?  I think you will do just fine without a rehersal!!  You could even just ask your soon-to-be mother-in-law to just go ahead & be seated with everyone else that way you can get on with the wedding march! I don’t think that’d be out of line at all.  It’d be different if there were any other mothers/step-parents, grandparents, etc walking too.  I would understand having a full procession then.  Good luck doll!

renwoman:  I’m from the UK and we don’t do rehearsals but people’s weddings still happen and everything happens when it should so I reckon you’ll be fine.  Just discuss it beforehand and then wing it 🙂
