The day before your wedding is a great time to host your wedding rehearsal when your bridal party is all together where the actual ceremony will be held. Parent and friends may also join in to watch, and the rehearsal usually take 30 to 60 minutes. The Wedding Planner will organize the bridal party in the order given by the bride, and also discuss other seating arrangements.
Due to family dynamics, there are many variations of "giving the bride away".

The ‘Box of Memories’ is a great way for a new couple to capture their thoughts and feelings about marriage and their love for each other. Before the wedding, the couple chooses a sturdy box making sure it is large enough for a bottle of wine and 2 glasses. Then, before the "big day", they need to write a letter to their future spouse, expressing their feelings, what they are thinking, what they love about them, and their hopes and dreams for the future.
