I need some advice.
We're getting married at noon on 4/21/11. It's a Saturday. Some of the bridal party is coming from the West coast and so I'm unsure exactly when they'll arrive (those folks are important, but also could miss the rehearsal and still get it right). I didn't want to have the rehearsal on Friday, the day before, b/c there's just too much going on. I'm required by the place to have it no later than 1 week before the wedding.
We'd need to do the rehearsal during the day because it's an outdoor wedding and there aren't lights, so I was hoping for the reherasal dinner to be more like a luncheon. We've got a favorite restaurant chosen for the RD, and I think they'll accomodate us if necessary during the week at lunchtime. Ideally, though, a Sunday afternoon might cost us significantly less at this eatery.
In your opinion, is the Sunday before too long in between the Rehearsal and the actual wedding? Should I consider a weekday thing? If so, more folks would have to take off of work too..
Thanks! - Michele
