    definitely have it friday! you will get to hang out w/ all your girls and relax before the rehearsal stuff. that way, you still have saturday to complete your last minute tasks!

    I think either would be fine, with Friday being preferable. I wouldn’t worry about it being too much in one weekend, on the contrary, as long as you’re not the one planning and organizing the shower/bachelorette or the rehearsal dinner and can just enjoy them, I think it will be great to have a fun-filled weekend with your loved ones from Orlando.

    I think Friday afternoon/evening would be fine.  That still gives you all day Saturday to recover/relax and get ready for the rehearsal.

    I actually really like the idea of a Friday evening shower/cocktail party.  You can have your Bridesmaid or Best Man set it up so that people can come and go and not feel obligated to arrive and leave at a certain time.  I think making it flexible will make it easier for your guests to come.  It’ll also be a nice way to relax a bit before the wedding.

    I’d go with Friday – you’ll probably be wigging out a little bit on Saturday with your wedding the next day – it’ll be more relaxed. I’m in a sort of similar situation with a wedding 3,000 miles away…I’m going out a week early and my Mom’s friend is throwing me one the Sunday before a Saturday wedding, but its kind of a bummer because almost all of MY friends are coming in from out of town, and won’t be able to make it. It’ll be nice for you to be able to have your nearest and dearest at the shower.

    I like the idea of doing it on Friday and turning it into a bachelorette.
