    I have been in super duper healthy mode for the past few months.  So I don’t eat dinner past 7pm but I usually shoot for 6pm.  Unless I’m at a function and eating late can’t be avoided.  I don’t know many other people that eat that early though.  At our reception, the entrees will be served at 8pm, so I guess that’s considered late to a lot of the people in the other post.  Its just what the venue said they’ll be doing so who am I to disapprove?

    I think its just a function of how late you work + whether you eat out or in. I am usually done with work by 6 but FI gets home anywhere from 6-7:30. He texts me when he leaves work and I start dinner. I’d say we almost always eat between 6:30 and 7:30. 

    (and for the record, dinner at our reception will be at 7:30pm on a sat night)

    I get home at 6, and FI doesn’t get home until 7:30.  By the time he gets home, changes out of work clothes, and we put the finishing touches on dinner, it is usually at least 8 PM.

    We basically never eat diner before 8pm. I work until 6 usually, and we work-out after work, and cooking dinner always takes at least an hour (generally, an hour and a half), which puts us usually sitting down to eat between 8:30 and 9pm.

    Cooking is our favorite time of the day!

    I know this will change when we have kids, but it works for us for now!

    Depends what I’m doing. I get off work at 3:00 or 3:30 pm and DH has been working nights so tonight he gets off at 7:00 so we’ll eat late. But if he’s working til 9, I’ll usually work out from 5:45-6:45 and eat afterwards. If I’m feeling EXTRA lazy and don’t work out and am not waiting for DH to come home, I eat before 6pm. When i was in college, dinner was at 5pm sharp though.

    I’m always starving by 5, and usually eat by 5:30 when I’m by myself.  That’s what my whole family did growing up.  But FI’s more like a 6:30-7 person, so we usually don’t eat until like 6:00 when we’re together.  Let me tell you, when we visit his family, and they’re planning on a 7:30-8:00 dinner, I’m up in the bed room sneaking something from the stash of snacks I bring for just that reason!  I just can’t go from a noon lunch to a late night dinner without something to hold me over!

    Growing up we always ate dinner at 4:30. I guess the early dinner time runs in our family. Now though, we eat around 5:30 or 6. Our dinner at our reception will start around then too 🙂

    We usually eat anywhere from 6:30-8pm depends on what time we get home and when  we decide to work out (before or after dinner)

    We work anywhere till 430-730 and then usually go on a run or a bike ride so the earliest we eat is around 7 but most nights now with it staying light out longer we won’t eat till around 9.
