@jlhardy4:  I would let them win this one and be happy they’re not trying to control anything on the next day 🙂

I also wouldn’t rent speakers and mics but purely because I’ve never heard of that at a Rehearsal Dinner.  But I just read a post where the OP had a DJ at the Rehearsal Dinner so maybe I’m missing out on something!

I agree, let your Future In-Laws pick the place they like best, especially since they are paying for it. Is your group large enough that you’ll be able to take over most of the main dining floor? At least that way, the noise will be coming from your group/they’ll be more quiet during the speeches. If the restaurant is willing to partition the room, that’s awesome! I think having a wireless microphone might be a nice way to resolve the problem, and your DJ might have one that you can use.  Really noisy restaurants are one of my pet peeves (I’ve noticed it more and more frequently, maybe it’s just a sign that I’m getting old).

Ask the restaurant too if the other group has confirmed the booking for the room — our wedding venue initially said our date was taken by another event, but that ended up cancelling (some sort of corporate event). 

Good luck!
