    I would just call the FIL’s and let them know that it wouldn’t be as special without them there. Maybe they just feel obligated to be in two places at the same time, and they didn’t know how important it was to you.

    Your FH needs to speak up!  It is obviously important to both of you!  And a rehearsal dinner is traditionally attended by both sets of parents.  I’m sure they would rather host thier Out of Town guests, but really they NEED to be there for the rehearsal.  Don’t give them the option no to go, have your FH tell them he needs them to be there.  (If you have no reason, FIND one!)

    Find how many people they are hosting.  It may be best to invite them as well, if it will insure that they will come.  It will cost a few extra $$ but at least you have removed all possible excuses!

    Best of Luck!

    I definitely think he should talk to them about it! They may not be aware of how much it means to him to have them there – especially if he’s the only child, or the first to get married!
