The Rehearsal normally is scheduled for the day before the Marriage. All the participants in the ceremony should be present, and encouraged to be on time. Other friends and family should be discouraged from attending so that the participants can focus on the task at hand.
If a dinner is to follow, it should be scheduled approximately an hour and a half after the Rehearsal. If the Holy Eucharist is to be celebrated as part of the Rehearsal, allow an extra half hour.
The Marriage License must be presented to the Officiant at or prior to the rehearsal.Last updated: July 22, 2015 at 14:52 pm
