I don’t know what the best solution is, but I think whatever you do you should not have the wedding and rehearsal on the same day.  That sounds so stressful to me!

Could you change to a Friday wedding? Then you could still have a Thursday rehearsal….Alternatively, you could wing the whole thing OR rehearse somewhere else.

Hi notarobot –

I have a similar worry – My wedding is on a Saturday, our “rehearsal dinner” is on Friday, but our space is booked Friday so there’s no actual “rehearsal” to go with the “dinner”. 

The venue instead is going to have a run-through/rehearsal an hour before the ceremony, just so everyone knows where they’re going —- but I (the bride) am not expected to be there.

I feel a little funny missing the rehearsal, but it takes a lot of stress off me.  Everyone says it’s ok – I will have the ceremony memorized prior anyway:-), and my place during the ceremony will be obvious.  Maybe you can do a similar thing?

Good luck!

I like the “rehearse somewhere else” option!

Go to your ceremony place at some point and measure the aisle so you know how long it is, or just ask the person that works there.  Then on Sunday night before your wedding you can have a backyard bbq or something casual and tape off the aisle in your backyard (or a park if your backyard will not work).  Having the length of the aisle with everyone walking down it will help you time the music just right for the ceremony.  You can really do the rehearsal anywhere and then have dinner afterwards.  I won’t find out if my ceremony space is available for a rehearsal until a week before the wedding, but we have plans to do it in my Mom’s backyard if its not available.  Everyone in the wedding party are good friends anyway and will understand.  You could even just go out to dinner after the rehearsal if you prefer that instead of a bbq.
