I find that people like to have something to do, I would totally want to go along, take the trolley ride…and if you buy some cheap spiral notebooks, write the numerals 1-10 seperately on the pages, and give them to the non-bridal party people… they can sit in the front row and score everyone’s walk down the aisle!  Winner gets a prize, so it behooves your bridal party to step up their aisle walking game…cause there’s something on the line!

Plus it makes it fun, kicks the energy of what is normally a kind of slumpy walk through, up a notch and makes for good pictures and memories!

The SO of my BM/GM just came with them to the rehearsal – we didn’t have a trolley or any kind of separate transportation – and they just sat and socialized while we did the rehearsal.  I think our rehearsal was less than an hour so it wasn’t that long.  Then we all went out to eat together.

May I ask why you’re having everyone meet at your parents then providing a trolley if the rehearsal venue is only 10 minutes away?  IDK – seems a bit much to me.  We just had everyone meet at the rehearsal venue (our church) so that the BM/GM went in one car with their SOs.

I’d let them choose whether they feel like attending the rehearsal or just showing up at 7. Personally, I would just show up at 7.

I would leave it up to the the couples to decide.  Some of the SOs of our bridesmaids and groomsmen came to the rehearsal and just waited.  Some came straight to the dinner.  I would just tell them the timing, give them the available options of going with, waiting at your parents house or coming later, and let them decide.
