I got roped into a lot of the planning for my rehearsal dinner too. At a certain point though I just said, “This isn’t my responsibility!” (We had all agreed from day 1 that FI family would be planning the rehearsal, but they put it off.) Basically I decided that if  they chose not to plan anything then they’ll look like dicks, not me. I saved some $ on the side so I could salvage something if needed, but lo & behold once they saw I wasn’t going to be forced into the planning, they stepped up and took care of it.

My advice: talk to your FI. Tell him to nicely tell his parents that you guys are too overwhelmed with the other wedding plans to focus on the rehearsal dinner, and you’d like them to take the reins and choose whichever restaurant they’re happy with, budget & otherwise. Tell them you trust their judgement & would really appreciate their help. Then step back and see what happens. Good luck!
