rehearsal and schedule

The wedding rehearsal is a time of careful preparation for a worship service. A time for the rehearsal will be determined by the Bride and the Wedding Director. It is recommended that the rehearsal take place between 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m., however a convenient time may be arranged with the SSBC Wedding Director. It should begin promptly at the time requested. It is the Bride’s responsibility to make sure each wedding party member arrives on time for the rehearsal. 


The standing arrangements of the Party will be determined by the Wedding Director first so that each Party member knows his/her position during the service. The standing arrangement can be discussed at the time of the initial meeting with the SSBC Wedding Director and the Wedding Party. The entire service will be rehearsed in proper order and directed by the Wedding Director.
