What happens if members of my bridal party cannot make the Rehearsal?

Related to Rehearsal

Members of a bridal party are often unable to attend, usually due to work commitments or that they simply live too far away. This is not an issue, because (after you have been to the rehearsal) you can explain the format and procedure to them prior to the wedding day.
