I’m confused. You can’t have the dinner or you can’t have the rehearsal?

I’ve been in 3 weddings where the Rehearsal Dinner was on a Thursday. They were all Catholic weddings though so not sure if that made a difference.

We are having a walk/talk through at the restaurant. Therefore,. no real rehearsal.  Our rev said that is becoming more comon because, really, do you need to practice walking down the aisle?  Once people know the order and where to sit (which they can be told to do) its all good.

Many venues are booked  on Friday nights. The alternatives usually are:

-have the rehearsal early on the Friday,before the  wedding-this only works if there are little to no decorations at the the venue for the other wedding and if the officiant is available

-have the rehearsal on the Thursday- can be expensive for out of town wedding party members and guests invited to the dinner.

– have the rehearsal at the rehearsal dinner venue- most officiants can do this. You really don’t need to be at the ceremony venue in order to run through the process.

We had our rehearsal at 4pm. Then we did dinner, but had a cocktail hour for that too. So that we weren’t serving “supper” like we were 85.
