Is it going to be a small rehearsal/dinner?  I’ve known people doing small ones to have something the week before, or a few days before.  You could also forgo a rehearsal all together, that’s what I did and it turned out just fine!

We didn’t have a rehearsal dinner.  It didn’t seem necessary – I figured people can walk down an aisle without practicing first (and they did!).  We did something unusual I guess – I had dinner at a fave restaurant with my family and any OOT guests who wanted to come and H had dinner and drinks with some of his friends and OOT guests at the hotel where we had our room block (he stayed there the night before and I stayed in our apt).  So I saw him Friday morning before he left for work, and then not again until the doors opened and I started walking down the aisle!

@LadyBortles:  To be honest, if you’re having him start the ceremony at the altar, there isn’t much he needs to do in terms of rehearsing. He goes in early, stands, follows the officiants instructions, and walks out with you. Worst case you could rehearse without him to make sure that the party and kids know what’s going on. The idea sounds painful to me, but it could do as a last resort. Also, the dinner portion is not precisely necessary, or could be really casual at someone’s house.

Do the rehearsal the morning of the wedding if you don’t have issues with him seeing you the day of.  Or, perhaps you could do it the day before but in the morning, and have a rehearsal brunch?
