Wedding Recap: Rehearsal
I was late to my own wedding . . . rehearsal. Yup. I said it. My Matron of Honor, Amy, and I had appointments to get our nails done at 3:30pm. The rehearsal wasn’t until 5:30pm. Plenty of time right? Apparently not. I rushed into the church at 5:25 still needing to put on my rehearsal dress and makeup. My hair had been curled, but we all know how well fine, straight hair does in the heat and humidity. At least I got to say hi to my mom, cousin, and aunt while I was in the bathroom. Plus, it’s odd changing in the bathroom of the church that you’ve attended since you were born, where you’ve changed hundreds of times for various reasons.
So without much ado, it was time to start the rehearsal. Late.
As usual, first you start in your positions by the altar. I had my girls stand in order of how long I had known them. I figured it was the most fair thing to do.
Then we got to practice recessing.
After a few minutes of strategizing on our game plane,
we got to practice processing.
The readers got to practice their readings.
Our on-lookers were amazed at our ability to rehearse so quietly and efficiently (sarcasm).
Our ring bearers (Owen and Colin) and my nephew, Henry, were sitting quietly and definitely NOT drawing on Bibles or Hymnals.
There were hugs to go around.
Matt got to hang out with his best man.
And was excited by the bow bouquet.
YAY FOR OUR REHEARSAL BEING OVER! (It took way too long). Time for some barbeque!
