Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner… That chance to get all the questions answered, calm your nerves (just a little), feast and visit with all your close family before the hectic next day. After a few practice runs at Collierville United Methodist Church, the families headed to Dustin’s parents’ home for some Rendezvous BBQ, toasts, stories and impromptu dancing in the driveway. Welcome to the celebration!
Speeches and toasts are always the best and worst part of the evening. Quaky voices must be steadied, ugly crying must be controlled, and love for those people takes over once you get started. Recounting the times spent with the bride or the groom has become a tradition and an expression of love and what that person means to you. This couple’s families had many things to tell and advice to give the future spouse.
