I don’t think it’s unreasonable to not want to do the rehearsal dinner there if you’re planning another event there a couple of days later. However, I don’t think having a rehearsal dinner at someone’s home is a bad idea. We’re hoping to have ours at FI’s parents’ home and have it catered.

I’m with your Fiance. The rehearsal dinner is traditionally hosted by the groom’s parents and as the host they get to decide what they want to do. Be grateful they are hosting the dinner , instead of having to deal with FIL’s who aren’t stepping up to the plate like a lot of brides on this site.

If you want to have another func tion there the day after the wedding, and you are in charge of planning it, you can make it totally different from the rehearsal dinner.

I concur with Jules. I would be grateful if anyone would host the rehearsal dinner rather than us paying for it ourselves .  Does Future Mother-In-Law know about the post-wedding barbecue plans you have? Maybe if you let her know about that she might want to change the venue for the rehearsal dinner.

I’ve been to two rehearsal dinners hosted either on-site or at someone’s house.  They are really quite a bit more fun because they are so much more laid-back and homey-feeling.
