@M.Ruder: are anyof your bridal party from out of town? if not you could probably just do a dinner after the rehearsal, but maybe choose a closer location to the venue. otherwise i’d put off the dinner until friday night so everyone will be able to make it (and you could fill in anyone that missed the actual rehearsal at the dinner).

Is your ceremony going to be super complicated?

If it’s not, I’d skip the Weds rehearsal. And just do dinner on Friday and ask the bridal party to come early to go over everything.

It may not be necessary to rehearse in the actual venue.

We are not having our rehearsal at the same location as the ceremony will be held (ceremony and reception are same location)

Of course our reverend is a friend and willing to go anywhere we want. But you could ask your minister to provide a breakout of the order and roles and a family member can conduct the rehearsal anywhere you want at any time you want.

In reality rehearsals are not really necessary if you think about everything and provide a “schedule” to each member of the party and discuss it at the rehearsal dinner. Our reverend said she has done this many times with couples she has married- either provided a timeline for the wedding and they took care of the rehearsal or just passed on the details.

For me, I would be willing to drive and do anything for a friend if I was in her wedding. Of course, however, that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be an inconvenience or a pain.
