    I think a lunch would be a great idea and I don’t think it is rude. I think it will give you more time to relax on Saturday night before your wedding on Sunday too!

    If you were doing it for lunch on Friday, it might put an extra burden on your guests, but I don’t see any reason not to do so on a Saturday. I think you’ll appreciate all the extra rest & relaxation time you’ll have instead of staying out late! Great idea!

    @chocolatecoveredstrawberry:  We have to pay for the rehearsal dinner ourselves and I didn’t even THINK to do a lunch… thanks for the idea!!

    We are probably having a rehearsal lunch also because we have a lot of oot guest and we prefer to host a welcome reception that evening instead of a rehearsal dinner. I think it’s fine it doesn’t have to be a dinner.

    I agree with prior posters. I think it’s perfectly fine, as long as the rehearsal and the meal are adjacent to each other in that day’s schedule so that participants would go directly from one event to the other.

    It the rehearsal is on a Saturday, it wouldn’t bother me in the slightest.

    I would make it a true lunch (no later than 1pm) and not later like 2 or 3.  People (including you) probably have a lot to do the day before the wedding, If it is too late in the day, it will really cut into people’s days.

    Great idea. Are you planning on inviting all of your Out of Town guests to the lunch? You’re not “required” to (despite what my Mother-In-Law tried to tell me.)

    We ran into the same problem, and are having a rehearsal lunch on Saturday from like 1-4.  No one has voiced any complaints and most are pretty happy to still have their Sat night free!
