Rehearsal services

$295. We encourage couples that if all possible they have us at the rehearsal.  The primary reason is your wedding officiant is the “director” each step of your ceremony.  The rehearsal is our “first take” and allows us to share with you our over 600 ceremonies of experience.  The rehearsal is generally conducted prior the actual wedding ceremony (within a few days before, based on availability of all parties, can be the same day). The purpose of a rehearsal is to work out any details and give instructions regarding how the ceremony will be conducted.

*Sometimes a bride or groom will ask me, “What is the purpose of a rehearsal?” The rehearsal should give you a feel for the overall flow of how your ceremony will take place on your wedding day, it gives the entire wedding party a chance to “practice” and ensure everyone is on the same page.   If you do not have a wedding coordinator, do not worry, I have assisted many couples with the rehearsal!

Some of the basics I assist with as your officiant during rehearsal include:

  • When does the first song or music begin?
  • Will you have a DJ or live music?
  • If you have a DJ, where will they be set up during the ceremony?
  • Who enters first to begin the wedding party?
  • Where does the bride’s mom sit?
  • Who walks the bride’s mom down the aisle?
  • When/where do the step-parents enter and sit?
  • When does each member of the wedding party enter?
  • Where does each member stand once they arrive at the front?
  • Where does the ring bearer stand?
  • Where does the flower girl stand?
  • Who is walking the bride down the aisle?
  • Where does the bride stop, to be “given away”?
  • How does the ring ceremony work?
  • How is a unity ceremony handled?
  • Presentation of the couple
  • Instructions for family and friends during final pictures at the end of the ceremony
