Looking for any support from brides who found their rehearsal made them feel worse or less prepared than before.
Tonight was our rehearsal, which I knew would be stressful as a whole. I very much tried to prepare myself for that. We have 12 attendants, 2 sets of parents, a master and mistress of ceremonies, plus the families of our flower girl and ring bearer. So needless to say we had a lot going on!
The venue coordinator has been very strict with her “system” and time since the beginning (no planner, just the venue lady). First of all when we were doing the ceremony practice she tried making me flip my order of my bridal party and how they walk out because she believes the maid of honor and best man should walk out first so the lines don’t get messed up 🙄 No lady, they come out how I want them to.
Also ww only practiced the ceremony twice, which everyone else seemed to be fine with but I feel even more unprepared than before honestly. We weren’t able to time the music so I’m nervous about that. I’m just overall really feeling the pressure I guess is the best way to explain it.
Also, we had the space from 5:30-7:00. Decorations from 5:30-6:00 and rehearsal from 6:00 to 7:00. I swear on my life as soon as it turned 7:01 she turns the lights off in the room and says it’s time to go. And I’m thinking “omg I hope everything is set up okay!” because I didn’t get the chance to do a final walk through.
I know these are minor things to be upset about, I don’t feel I’m as mad as I am just feeling really out of control. I’m probably being a little bridezilla but a file is stressed. I can’t sleep for anything so I’m eating my feelings as my fiancé sleeps soundly 🤣
