I would bump it back to 6.  It’s obnoxious that she took a babysitting job when she should have known there would be a rehearsal dinner, but I don’t think 6 is too late.

Is she just finding out now that the rehearsal is at 5, or was it scheduled well in advance?

I would slide it back if that’s an option and if you didn’t have it set for 5 months ago and communicated to all concerned parties. You can’t control traffic, tough to predict exactly what will happen on that day (for all you know, the parents she’s sitting for could come home late …) but that at least gives her a fighting chance of getting there.

i think if you can easily push it back an hour then why not? that way she is there and you will not have to worry about anyone not being prepared.

a thought about traffic: i see you also live in boston, and as a person who frequently drives around this city and its surround areas, i would absolutely count on traffic that night. it always shocks me how much traffic there can be on times where i think everyone is on vacation/not traveling. especially since the holiday is mid-week,  lot of my coworkers are using THIS weekend for the holiday and will work thursday and friday as normal. 6:15 might even be better!

I agree with @bostongirl27. Traffic is always horrendous. Add in tourists for the holiday weekend, and the fact that many people have off of work, I would most definitely push it back to at least 6. I’d probably do 6:30 to be on the safe side.  I know personally I will be using next weekend at the 4th of July holiday because I get Wed. off of work, so I took Thursday and Friday off to go away for the weekend. I would assume plenty others are doing the same, and that would add a lot of traffic if those people are travelling to Boston.

Bump it back a bit if you can and hopefully she can make it even with traffic.  If not, you’ll have to just go ahead without her – it definitely isn’t critical that she be there.
