We are doing all our decorating the night before the wedding (before the rehearsal).  You should talk to your venue and see what their rules are.

@Sadiepoo:  In our situation my venue would charge us extra to set the decorations up before hand (I would have to reserve the venue for more days than our wedding day) We can begin setting up at 8am… and I will be there! We are going to have people in our family and bridal party help us set everything up (I have heard suggestions to have everything organized and a picture of how you want it to look with the items.) My parents will probably be bringing everything in in their car or trailer.  I am hoping in two hours we can get a lot done and the groom, groomsmen and my parents can finish setting everything up when my BM’s and I are getting are hair done.  

Some venues let you decorate ahead of time.  If we had this option I would go for it!

We actually only can get into our venue 2.5 hrs before the actual ceremony, so I can’t set anything up myself.  We’re hiring a Day-of-Coordinator to handle set-up of escort cards, gift tables, programs, etc, and the caterer is handling setting up the tables, chairs, centerpieces, etc.

Our venue doesn’t allow set up the night before as they have something going on every Friday night. We are allowed to come in the morning of to decorate. So we’ll probably go in around 8am and set up. It should only take a couple hours and we’re having as many people as possible helping. Definitely give your venue a call and see what their decorating policies are, and when you’re allowed to come decorate.
