So as if I needed any further stress, now the officiant says that he doesn’t think he can make the rehearsal. Needless to say I am panicking. I feel like the ceremony is going to be a disaster and just look so unorganized! 🙁 Should I be worried??

Oh no! Can you go through the ceremony with him over the phone or meet with him in person earlier in the week just so you know the two of you are on the same page?

@celticbride: I hope so! He is actually my cousin. He’s the kind that doesn’t really prepare, he says whats on his heart so I don’t know..I’m just really in panick mode right now.

First, don’t panic. Some friends of mine their pastor didn’t make the rehearsal either (they got married out of state and the airline canceled his flight). The day came and everything worked out perfectly for them. Just remember that your day will be perfect no matter what and it is more about the commitment you are making to each other not all the other details.
Edited to say: Good luck to you Michigan bride. I’m also a Michigan bride getting married a few weeks after you 🙂

Don’t panick. You will be fine. I was just in a wedding and none of us were able to come to the rehearsal & everything went smoothly.
My officiant also doesn’t do rehearsals, she doesn’t see a point in them!
