The Rehearsal

Our wedding rehearsal was held at Trinity United Methodist Church in Fort Walton Beach at 5:30pm on Friday, March 10th.  Reverend John Bonner and wedding coordinator Deirdra Gary had everything all ready to go and did a wonderful job of coordinating everything needed to prepare for our big event.

The Rehearsal Party

Our rehearsal party was held immediately following the rehearsal on the BBQ patio of the Ramada Plaza Beach Hotel.  We had nearly 70 guests in attendance, including all of the members of our wedding party.  We were blessed that the weather was very nice as we really wanted the rehearsal party to be outside.  It did get a little chilly as the night went on.

When we planned our wedding, we knew that a lot of our friends and family would be coming a long way to share our wedding day with us.  It was very important to us that we got to spend as much time with everyone as possible.  At a typical wedding, the bride and groom get maybe 5 to 10 minutes with each guest during the reception.  That wasn't going to cut it for us.  By throwing a rehearsal "party" rather than a typical "dinner", we had a lot more time to spend with our guests.

Everyone on the Ramada staff who helped set up and run our rehearsal dinner did a wonderful job.  The food was excellent!  After the rehearsal party ended around 10:00pm, many of us moved over to the Oasis where we had some desserts, light snacks, and beverages.  We finally wrapped things up around 1:00am!
