Do we need to have a rehearsal?

Rehearsals are a great way to ensure everyone knows what to do at your ceremony.

Since you will need to be in specific places at the start of your ceremony, you will not be there to remind people where they need to be and what they need to do.

Checking the timing of your entrance to your chosen music is also important.  The last thing you want would be for the music to finish before you reach your partner!

So we suggest you involve your bridal party in a rehearsal (at least to the extent this is possible), as well as the person operating your music.

Try to do it at the venue – as then they will be familiar with the surroundings.music

Test your CD or iPod on the equipment that will be used, or make sure you know where any live musicians will set up.  Nowadays your celebrant will normally have their own music system and make arrangements for someone to operate it.

And of course make sure you involve your celebrant.  After all, they are responsible for the ceremony.

And if you are planning an outdoor wedding, don’t forget to familiarise yourself with the wet weather fallback.  Remember this is Melbourne, and our weather is notoriously variable!  There is nothing wrong in hoping for the best weather.  You just need to be prepared for the worst.
