We are filling out our church rental agreement and they are asking logistics questions that i need some advice about! Pleqase help me with any of it that you can!!
1. Rehearsal- wedding is on a Saturday and I think the rehearsal shouldbe on the Thursday AFTER dinner (like 7 or so?) with coffee and snacks at my parents house after. My parents house is 15 minutes away and central for everyone involved, furthest person coming to this evening would be 20 minutes away.. does that work?
2. How long does rehearsal take usually?
3. Day of- How do I figure out when the ceremony will be? Nothing is more than a half hour from eachother.. see distances below
Hair/makeup to home- 20 minutes
Home to church- 15 minutes
Church to reception/ photos- 30 minutes..
Any ideas? How do I start figuring this out?

@Seashells7: I haven’t figured out all of our timing stuff, but our ceremony venue is giving us two hours for the rehearsal the Friday night before the wedding.

I would suggest your rehearsal be on Friday evening if you’re having a Saturday wedding. Length depends on the size of your wedding, but 2 hours should be enough at the church. As for your ceremony, you should choose a time that correlates with your reception, and work backward from there

I am trying to figure out the same things myself. Rehersal you’ll probably need 1-2 hours depending on the size of the wedding, number of children, readers etc that need to be rehearsed.
Day of, start at your reception and work backwards – if you having a seated dinner at 6:00 start there and go back ie:
1.5 hours for post ceremony photos
0.5 hours greeting outside church
Ceremony starts at 4:00
and so on. For hair etc, I would add at least 30 minutes to how long you think everything will take, nothing ever goes to plan and you don’t want the stress of ‘running late’
