    Ours will probably be a couple of hours. I used to work as a banquet server and worked rehearsal dinners all the time. They typically last 2-3 hours. I have worked some where people would drink until midnight!

    We are getting a free venue for the dinner that is pretty cool with nice views of the city and an outdoor area, so I’m thinking people will want to stick around a little while.  We are doing a cocktail hour beforehand so maybe 3?  Also we are doing a mock rehearsal there, just figuring out how to line people up, etc. so that might take up some more time.

    Good question!  I’d love to know the answer to this. Fiance and his best man (his brother) are thinking of fitting the bachelor party in that night…

    Ours was probably 3-4 hours. But it was a rehearsal brunch, and it was very casual. It was at my in laws, we just sat around, ate, and mingled.

    I’m not sure what is typical, but ours is going to be 2 hours. Other ones I’ve been to seem to have been 2-3 hours.

    I would think it would 2-3 hours. Depending on how many people are attending….

    We’re doing a more casual- reservations at a nice restaurant type rehearsal dinner so I have no idea how long it will be. We’re going broke from the wedding so no drinks so I imagine it will be about an hour or so and then go to a bar for some fun.
