MsGinkgo:  we had our RD fri night and rehearsal morning of the wedding on Saturday. I see no issue changing it up.

This sounds like a great idea. You get to have dinner with your out of town guests and your bridal party without having to co-ordinate everyone who isn’t going to be at the rehearsal. Then on the Friday you just have the rehearsal with everyone who needs to be there. Sounds a whole lot more relaxing!

My 1st daughter’s rehearsal dinner was a week before, due to scheduling issues, of those involved. I tried to put them through a ceremony rehearsal, after eating and consuming quantities of adult beverages, and it was a total waste of time. We had already scheduled the rehearsal for 1-hour before the ceremony – with the officiant and venue’s co-ordinator, and it went much smoother, then.
