We’re getting married next year, but I already know that 1 of my maids won’t be there. She is starting her residency and is very limited in the amount of time off she can get. I’m not worried about it… it’s just walking up and down the aisle, not rocket science! 😀 It’s more important for my Fiance and I to get the timing right of all the different pieces of the ceremony than anything else I think.

Has she ever been in a wedding before?  Or watched any movies on weddings?  🙂  The Bridesmaid or Best Man role is a pretty simple one.  I feel like the rehersal is best for the bride and groom and any little ones who may be in the ceremony.  Maybe just ensure that she isn’t the first Bridesmaid or Best Man coming down the aisle so she can follow someone else’s lead.

I was in a wedding once where two bridesmaids were missing.  Two of the ushers that were doing the seating and invited to the rehearsal basically so they would be invited to the super fun rehearsal dinner stepped in and “acted” in their place.  They were hillarious, yet well behaved.

I think I’ve been to a few where one of the BMs or GMs couldn’t make the rehearsal. It will be fine as long as the other people are there. They can just fill him/her in on that day. Especially if that person is not going first. But even if they are, it’s not really too hard to walk down the aisle and stand there for your wedding. They’ll figure it out 😉 Haha.

We already know that one of the BMs won’t be there because of a work commitment. I think it’ll be okay. She’s a smart girl. She can just copy the person in front of her.
