we’re having the rehearsal dinner on Thursday, the night before the wedding. A few bridal party members and some family need to fly in for the wedding and wouldn’t be able to fly in an entire weekend before the wedding.

we’re still looking for a restaurant but the plan is to have the rehearsal dinner with bridal party and family and then open up the party to any out of towners who were able to fly in early.

I had a Friday wedding and we didn’t have an offcial “rehearsal” as we didn’t get married at a church.  We held a backyard shindig on Thursday night as most of our out of towners came in on Thursday. Then we just staged a rehearsal walk down the aisle with the bridal party. You could do the same at the restaurant though.

If you’re getting married at a church though, I know that some official rehearsals have to take place Wednesday as Thursday is the rehearsal for Saturday weddings.

Ours was the night before (so, Thursday). We had a formal rehearsal at the venue followed by a Rehearsal Dinner at a local restaurant.

Well, we had a Saturday wedding so our rehersal was the Friday night before the wedding.  A friend of mine had a Friday wedding though and she did hers on the Thursday night before the wedding.
