Cheer up!  It doesn’t matter!  Luckily, she can catch up once she gets there, and at least her exam isn’t scheduled for a day later!

If it makes you feel any better, My cousin (and BM) is getting married next month, and I am to be a bridesmaid. I won’t be able to attend her rehearsal either. I have to work that day, but there are only two maids, so it should be easy. LOL! I wasn’t able to be  at the rehearsal for my Maid/Matron of Honor when she got married either. But I was at the wedding. LOL

I’m sorry! That stinks. She’ll be at the wedding though and that’s really all that matters, right?

Our BEST MAN missed our rehearsal.

It all turned out good. It’s not rocket science, they just stand and walk. So it’ll be fine. At least she’ll make it for dinner!

It’s no biggie, nice that she’ll be there for dinner.  I’ve been a Maid/Matron of Honor and missed the rehersal due to work/travel times…and everything worked out fine.  Good luck with everything 🙂

It sucks that she can’t be there, but I think it sounds like you’ve got a good plan in place.  I know I had to miss the rehearsal when I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man once (for the same reason as your friend–exam!) and it worked out just fine.  It helped that my friend was totally understanding, so I didn’t feel too guilty.

I’m getting married on saturday and there’s now a chance my cousin (who is one of my two moh’s- no other bridal party) won’t even make it to the wedding! It sucks if your bm can’t make it to the rehearsal but just be grateful she’ll be there for the ceremony. Cheer up, it will all be fine!!

We have a lot of people coming from out of town, and also have a lot of attendants.  I know that not everyone will be able to make the rehearsal.  If they can…great…if not, that’s okay too.  The only thing they’re really going to need to know is who they’re walking with…and everything else will figure itself out.  Of course, I would love to have everyone there…but I understand that they have more going on in their lives than my wedding.  They will all be at the wedding looking lovely and handsome, and that’s what matters!  Hope you feel better about this soon! I’m sure she wishes she could make it too 🙂

My Maid/Matron of Honor almost missed our rehersal due to an accident that pretty much closed the interstate leading to our venue.  It was no big deal, my DOC was just going to give her the run down the next day if she had any questions.  So it will be fine, although I’m sorry it’s happening to you because I know it’s a bit stressful.

maybe she could ask her professor to take it a day early?

That’s okay, I had a bm miss the rehearsal too because of school. In the end, she was there for the wedding and that’s what really mattered. All my Maid/Matron of Honor had to do was tell her when to walk during the processional and which groomsmen to walk off with and it was all good!
