    If you want these people to potentially stop talking to you, then yes that’s an excellent reason to drop them from the wedding party

    kimlynn95:  no it isn’t a principle and that isn’t the correct context in which to use that word. Do you mean is it a requirement that they show up? The answer to that is no, as evidenced by the poll results and every single response in this thread. I hope you don’t choose to prioritize an unnecessary rehearsal over potentially hurting and losing your friends.

    Um.. nope?

    Little confused as to why they would be so important. It’s pretty straightforward, walk down and aisle and stand to the side.

    Is this real life? No, I would not have “dropped” anyone if they couldn’t make the rehearsal. And I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a unanimous poll on the Bee…

    That says something.

    kimlynn95:  I’m having trouble believing that noon 2 days before is the only available rehearsal time. If the rehearsal is that important to you, find a different time, even if it’s the weekend before.

    I guess since you are “iffy” about being a Bridesmaid or Best Man in someone else’s wedding because there *might* be snow (even though your wedding is in Feb??) I shouldn’t be surprised at this question.

    No. Not being able to attend the rehearsal is not a good reason to “drop” someone, especially when the rehearsal is at noon during the week! Do you even value the friendships with the people you asked to be in your wedding?

    And I’m really surprised nobody voted yes…..

    That just shows how out of touch with reality you are.

    I think this is the only poll EVER on WB where everyone agrees.

    No, so long as some of the groomsmen/bridesmaids attend the rehearsal they can just follow the others. With bridesmaids its a bit trickier because of the timing for the walking down the aisle but you just need to show them the point in the music beforehand e.g. before the wedding.
