Decisions best made before the rehearsal are:
- Will grandparents and/or parents enter ceremonially? Will there be ushers?
- Who is in the wedding party? Who will carry the rings?
- How many seats need to be set aside for family? Are they clearly marked?
- Are blended family considerations taken into account in the seating?
- Where will the musicians be located and how will they be cued?
- How will the wedding party enter and in what order?
- What props (like wine or candles) are needed during the ceremony? Who will bring them?
- Will candles be exposed to possible wind or breeze?
- Where will flowers or decorations be placed relative to where the wedding party stands?
- Does the officiant need a microphone to be heard over ambient noise?
- Do the wedding couple want to have a microphone?
- For outside weddings, where will the sun be during the time of the wedding?
- If there is a videographer, where will the camera be placed?
- Will there be a receiving line after the ceremony?
- When will photographs be taken?
- In a legalized marriage ceremony, who will the legal witnesses be?
And - Rev. Robin Renteria can accommodate last minute changes!
As your wedding minister or wedding officiant, Rev. Robin Renteria recommends rehearsals for ceremonies with
- formal seating of family,
- lots of logistical elements,
- simply if you want the peace of mind!
In the rehearsal, she guides the process, and defers in all decisions to you!
The wedding ceremony is a ritual,
not a performance.
We rehearse to leave performance fears behind and to remember that we are here,
simply and joyfully,
to celebrate your love!
