Wedding Wednesday- The Rehearsal
Northwest Ohio Wedding Photography This is the day where it all comes together. Well..... hopefully! There are bound to be last minute details that require your attention. This is why we gather everyone together to make sure they all know the game plan for the big day. As your photographer, I like to stop by your rehearsal for a couple reasons.
1. I need to be in the loop too- By this point we've already met to finalize your timeline, but if anything happens to change (as it often does) ... I need to know.
2. I'd love to meet your peeps!- I like to take this time to try and get to know your parents, siblings, and bridal party. I'm terrible with names, but I do my best to keep everyone straight. The sooner we get to know each other, the more comfortable everyone seems to get in front of the camera.
3. Talk to the other vendors- Whether your ceremony is at a church, outdoor facility, or reception hall, someone is in charge. I always take the time to introduce myself to the minister and facility coordinator. The better we all work together, the smoother your day will be.
4. Answer questions- Your rehearsal can leave you with your head spinning from all the questions from your loved ones. I am happy to be there to a least answer the groomsmen on where they are supposed to meet and what time.
My best two pieces of advice....
Communication and Thursdays! The more you communicate to your crew, the more organized your rehearsal will be, and the smoother the wedding day will be! Thursday? Yes, I'm talking Thursday rehearsal for Saturday weddings! Crazy idea, I know, but hear me out. Most people are required to do a Friday rehearsal because maybe people are coming from out of town or the facility requires a certain time. If you have the flexibility, opt for Thursday instead and give yourself an entire extra day to tie up any last minute details. I promise you won't regret it!!
Happy Planning! -B
