Rehearsals - $200*
Rehearsal are recommended in most situations if possible, for a bunch of reasons.
The main reason: couples enjoy their ceremonies more when they have rehearsals. Can you imagine putting on a big-budget production of any other kind without a rehearsal? There is a lot to be said for knowing what to expect in general - and those feelings are amplified when you're standing on an (often literal) pedestal in front of everyone you care about.
Your wedding party and close family can/will bond and get their shenanigans started properly.
I'll perform better.
Your photos will turn out better.
I'd love to go through everything with your venue and/or wedding coordinator(s), if possible, but they don't need to run the actual rehearsal - I like doing that part. We'll review our roles and your lines, go over where everyone stands, how not to get in each others' way, how to pin a boutonniere - and I'll answer the age-old question of "what do we do with our hands?" These efforts ahead of time will make sure everyone feels comfortable, and the ceremony will proceed smoothly with fewer problems.
Bonus: I give a pretty good pep-talk at rehearsals. I'll provide your wedding party with suggestions on how they can be helpful on the big day, and give everyone a crash course in modern wedding etiquette.
