I have two members(one bridesmaid and one groomsmen) out of 10 of us that most likely can’t make it to the wedding rehearsal due to work scheduling.
My question is, how important is it for the bridal party to show up to the wedding rehearsal?

@The Average Bride: In my opinion very important. It’s the day everyone runs through where they need to be, timing and how things will flow for the day. Especially if you are having a church ceremony. I know our priest wouldn’t be thrilled with members of the wedding party being absent. But I guess you could always fill them in if need be…
No way they could take off early?

I want to say fairly important, but it depends on how complex your ceremony is. If it’s walk down aisle, stand there for five minutes, walk back down, they can probably miss it with no stress. If you have a complex church ceremony that involves a full sermon, worship and communion and lots of moving around, then they probably need to be there.

The current plan is to have it 2 days before the wedding date (Thursday late afternoon). I’ve heard from a few friends that it’s nice to leave the day before just to relax and not think about wedding stuff. Plus, I know myself, I’m going to need a little relaxer.
The bridesmaid is more reasonable with trying to get off( but it’s hard because that’s her 1st week she’s starting a new job…which is training), the other one lives across the country. So it’ll take about half a day to travel.
Our Ceremony is an outdoor garden ceremony at 6pm.

@ redpepper: It is more like a church ceremony with a full sermon, vows, maybe communion, etc.
