For those of you that didn't have a rehearsal, how did it go?
We initially planned on having a rehearsal as well as a dinner. However, now that we've downsized our wedding to local family and the wedding party (about 40 people), and considering most of the party cannot make it in the night before, a rehearsal seems kind of pointless.
I still have anxiety about hosting a gathering at all during these times, despite taking a ton of precautions, and am happy to be rid of an extra event.
We have a meeting with our officiant next week to go over everything, but as far as I know, it's going to be a pretty simple ceremony. It's also an extra $195 for the officiant to attend the rehearsal.
Any tips or words of advice on how to help things run smoothly?
