I would explain to them all you have to do that day so they (F/MIL) can understand what all you have to do that day and how inconvenient it is for you.

On the other hand, it sounds like you might be overloading yourself with DIY. I get the DIY thing because that’s what I’m doing too, but you should have it to where you are doing as little as possible the day before. Take advantage of the time you have in advance and be creative as to what you can do to eliminate tasks the day before. Dinner or not, you need to de-stress the day before!

Wow, this sounds so similar to a thread another bee started a couple of months ago.  What I think is if you are not having a rehearsal, then this is not a rehearsal dinner.  If your FI’s family wants to be kind and host a dinner for their Out of Town guests, that’s fine.  But it won’t be called a rehearsal dinner.  (Get it?)  Then you, your family, and even Fi really don’t have to show up.  His parents are simply being kind in paying for their family’s "get together" dinner.

I do think they have good intentions, as long as their plan would have included your side too, (had your family been able to make it.)
