@beeintraining:  I would call because that sounds a little strange.  Call, then send a follow up email with “I’m so glad we worked out that I my wedding ceremony will be held at ___ time on __ date as per our conversation.” Maybe try asking to speak to someone you know at the church?

I would just call back and say “sorry, I can’t move the date as my reception venue is already booked.  It would mean a lot to me to get married here as I’ve been a member of this church for xx years.  Is there anything you can do?”

I would definitely call them. That sounds very vague and not very helpful at all. 

Like you said, its a rehearsal; not a major event i would think. 

Just politely tell them that unfortunately you are unable to move the wedding date due to _____ and that you may need to look elsewhere if they are booked for that day. 

Maybe ask some follow-up questions? What time is the rehearsal, etc? Since a ceremony doesn’t take all day, perhaps they could reschedule it?
