You for sure need to find an officant that will do a day before rehersal. You’ll have sooooooooo much to worry about the day of and you don’t want to have to worry about a dress rehersal.

Maybe you can find an officiant that is free a couple days before the wedding?  It looks like you’re getting married on a Saturday, so part of the problem might be if there are a lot of Friday weddings in your area and officiants are expecting/hoping to be booked up on both Fridays and Saturdays.  We are actually having our rehearsal two days before the wedding because that is when our church is available. 

Also, could part of the problem be that the officiants are looking for extra payment to conduct a rehearsal?  I’ve heard that sometimes officiants will charge an extra fee on top of their regular fees to be present for a rehearsal. 

Finally, could you possibly do a rehearsal without the officiant?  If you can get a hold of the script he/she will be using, you might be able to have someone stand in for the officiant during the rehearsal.

I know it may be hard for some of your wedding party to participate, but could you try to do it on the Thursday before? We are having ours on Friday night and our wedding is Sunday. We have had several people tell us how nice it is to have a day inbetween and how excited they are to be able to spend time with all of us the night before.

If that doesn’t work, I suggest meeting with your officient and talking details with them about the ceremony. Even draw out on a piece of paper how you want people to stand, etc. Talk everything through with him in detail and then do a non-officient rehearsal the night before so your wedding party is on the same page.
