    We’re having a rehersal lunch the day before – worked better with everyone’s schedules, and I’m happy because it gives me the rest of the day to relax and do any last minute things!

    We did our the night before mostly because we had out of towners in our bridal party. My SIL had her on Thursday for a Saturday wedding which was really nice because it gave us all day friday to do other things in preperation for her wedding like flowers and programs and last minute things. i would have gone this route but the church wouldn’t let us.

    The day before.  We had people participating in the wedding coming from all over the globe, and the day before was the only time they would all be in the same place!

    We had ours on the Thursday night before our Saturday night wedding.  I had about a million things to do the night before!

    We’re doing our actual rehearsal Thursday morning and then the dinner that night, for a Saturday wedding.

    We are doing it the day before at 11AM.  They have a wedding on Friday night so it was either a Friday morning reahearsal or Thursday night rehearsal.  We opted for doing the Friday morning to keep it the day before and have a rehearsal lunch.  I actually really like the idea of it too.  I like that I’ll have the rest of the afternoon to get last minute things done, like pack for the honeymoon!

    We did it the night before. Several members of our bridal party were from out of town and were traveling in specifically for the wedding.

    We did the rehearsal late Thursday afternoon, followed by the dinner and the wedding was on Saturday.

    If you need a lot of Out of Town people to be at the rehearsal, you usually have no choice but to do it the night before. If everyone is local, I guess earlier could work.
