    I would do the rehearsal two days before with just the wedding party.  I would also have your parents host the brunch in your absence but just make it known that you will be unable to attend ahead of time.  Are you going to be putting in a seperate reply card for the brunch.  This is what I am planning on doing and only putting them in the invitations to those who will be invited to the brunch.

    I would do the rehearsal early on NYE.  It’s not really fair to ask all of the OOT people to come in an extra day early (more time off work, extra hotel night, extra night of rental car, etc – it really adds up) in order to have it on 12/30.

    No one will expect you to have a NYE bash planned for them after the rehearsal (or at least they shouldn’t) so as long as you have everything early enough that they can still do something on their own for NYE then I think that would be your best bet.

    I agree with FutureKMM – I would do the rehearsal early on NYE. I would however provide information on different NYE activities for your OOT guests so that they know up front that you will not be planning anything, but also have some choices of things they can do to celebrate in the area.
