we are doing the rehearsal at 6 pm and the dinner from 7-9 pm.  how early did you want t ogo to bed?  are any of your Bridal Party traveling to the wedding?  dont schedule it too early because their flights may not have arrived or they may not have checked into their rooms.

If everyone will be in town a few days before the wedding, could you just do the rehearsal dinner two nights before the wedding (the night before the rehearsal)?  We have to have the rehearsal on Friday night, even though we’re getting married on a Sunday.  Right after the rehearsal we’ll have pizza and beer at our house, but the actual "rehearsal dinner" isn’t until Saturday night.  Kinda our of order, but it’s what works for us.  If you do it the night before, you can still have a good time hanging out with your friends and staying up late, but you’ll also be able to get to bed at a decent hour the night before the wedding.

I think usually they’re the week of the wedding??  Our wedding is July 11 (Saturday) so the rehearsal will be the Thurs night (9th).  Dinner will be at the venue as well since it’s a golf course.

We are doing a Thursday night rehearsal for a Saturday wedding, too. The rehearsal will be at 6:30, and the dinner will start at about 7:45. We chose to do Thursday night so we’d have Friday free for the Bridesmaid’s Luncheon, mani/pedis, decorating, and a casual dinner with out-of-town relatives… instead of having to rush to fit in a rehearsal & rehearsal dinner, too. We just made sure to okay it with the out-of-town wedding party members, first. They were planning on being in town by then, anyhow.
