    Saturday. It’s easier than rushing around after work. People might already be taking a day or two off for the wedding you wouldn’t want to ask them to take more time to get out early or something.

    Ive never heard of a Rehearsal Dinner so ahead of the wedding normally its the day before. But I would say Friday at 6:30. At 4 on sat it would be hard to get anything else done.

    Sat. I don’t work but my hubby does and he’s always really tired by the time the week is over.

    i would say friday, only because it would allow your wedding party to have other plans for saturday, since 4pm kind of limits your saturday activities. either way, i’m sure it’ll be great!

    Why can’t you have it the Friday right before the wedding?

    With your options I would probably pick Friday I guess 🙂

    Is there a particular reason you’re having it so long before the wedding? Multiple weeks before the wedding seems like a really long gap. Will people remember what you have rehearsed?

    I say Saturday, for what it is worth. It’ll help people who are mucho exhausted on Friday nights (points emphatically at self)

    Why can’t you do it on December 3rd (the evening before your wedding)??  It seems a little strange to me to have the rehearsal / rehearsal dinner a full 2 weeks before the event.

    if you have it sat night i think you should make it at a later time for some people who might work on the weekends (i do, so sat/sun planning is always a big deal for me)

    I would say depends on your guests–is anyone traveling? Do most of your people work a regular work week, or do some people work Saturdays? I work M-F and typically do not get home until after 6, so I would always prefer a Saturday event unless it was really close to where I live. On the other hand, for someone who typically works Saturdays, it could be difficult for them to get both that Saturday off and the Saturday of your wedding. Just things to think about.
