Rehearsal Checklist for Planners

I’ve shared our rehearsal process and tips before, but I’ve had a few of you asking for an actual checklist for your rehearsals. You can download our rehearsal checklist for planners below to print and use at your own wedding rehearsals.

Rehearsal Checklist  

  • Introduce yourself and welcome everyone.  If you’re in a house of worship ask the officiant if they would like to say a prayer before starting.
    • Introduce yourself and welcome everyone. If you’re in a house of worship ask the officiant if they would like to say a prayer before starting.
    • Place the wedding party in their appropriate places.
    • Make sure the couple likes where everyone is standing.
    • Instruct the wedding party on how to stand, how to hold their hands and bouquets.
    • Place parents and grandparents in their appropriate reserved seats and introduce them to their usher.
    • Explain the usher’s duties to him/her.
    • The couple (or proxy bride) should be in place ready for instructions by the officiant.
    • Have the wedding party practice the recessional.
    • Then have everyone practice the ceremony from beginning to end.
    • After you are done pass out the wedding timelines and go over what time everyone needs to arrive the next day and where.
    • Go over any venue rules and policies.
