It’s a good practice to rehearse your wedding ceremony before the fact, so everyone knows what to do. Our officiant and coordinator recommended it (and included it in their fees), so we decided to hold a rehearsal for our bridal party the day before the wedding. Unfortunately, our venue was booked for a wedding that night, so we were unable to rehearse at the actual wedding site. We decided instead to do it at the Mt. Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park. We chose this park for a few reasons—most importantly, it was free. We just planned to stand on the grass somewhere. There was covered space (under the bridge), so we were OK for most weather. (If it had been raining hard, we would have just done it inside the hotel.) The park was a three minute walk from the hotel where most of our guests and bridal party were staying and where our welcome party was held a couple of hours later.
