Rehearsal Etiquette and Itinerary
You have spent a lot of time, money and energy to create a beautiful wedding. The Rehearsal is the official “kick off” to the beginning of your wedding celebrations and the beginning of your wedding memories.
My goal for your Rehearsal is to have fun, for things to go as easily as possible so that you and your family will arrive at your Rehearsal dinner on time relaxed and excited about your “tomorrow”.
We start ON TIME. Be mindful that your guest could arrive as much as 30 to 40 minutes prior to the event. Let’s not keep them waiting especially if you have a summer out door wedding. It’s HOT and hard on the young and the old.
Children and Pets participating in the ceremony…
Mothers or fathers of the children OR pets, will be on “stand-by” to scoop up the kids and to “scoop up”…well you know what…if the they are not able to make it down the aisle.
The children will not be standing during the ceremony. They make their grand entrance and then are retrieved by the parent at the end of the aisle and will be seated with their parent.
Pets must be cleared in advance by the venue to be allowed to participate.
A leash is required at all times as well as a kennel for safe keeping of your beloved pet. Pets must be current on their vaccinations!
Please designate a “Pet Handler” family or friend to watch over your pet during the event. Make sure water is available at all times.
