Are you planning a rehearsal dinner? If so, you could just meet your bridal party and officiant before it starts to go over the general order, iron out any wrinkles, etc.

Having a rehearsal at the venue isn’t necessary if you’re not doing anything complicated (i.e. having people enter from several spots, trying to time music cues, etc.)

This was my situation too. (I got married on a Sunday, and there was a wedding on Sat)

So we did our rehearsal about 4 hours before the wedding, on the day of the wedding; and it worked out just fine.

You want to be sure to have a rehearsal, as much as we think people know what to do bc, they either are married, been in a wedding party, or been to lots of weddings; people still are unsure of excatly what you want them to do; so rehearsals def help everyone understand and be comfortable with what they are doing, knowing they arn’t doing anything wrong 🙂

If this happens, I will usually tell a client to have the rehearsal in someone’s home (if someone has a house large enough), or at a local park, if the weather is nice. Sometimes the restaurant where couples have their rehearsal dinner can accommodate a rehearsal if they have private rooms. I’ve done this many times! This works best when the restaurant has more than one private room. They’ll have the dinner set-up in one room, and the other will be empty for you to use.

I hope that helps! 🙂
