I wouldn’t just send the invites without telling them first but perhaps you can tell them that since they are being kind enough to host the event at their home, you will take care of the invitations. And yes you should include the details like the location of the rehersal because you are inviting them to the rehersal and rehersal dinner so both locations should be on there.

I would say that it is fine to send out the invites but perhaps ask you future Mother-In-Law if she would like to help you design or address them? That way you could get the info out that you want but it could also be some bonding time for the two of you.

My Mother-In-Law hosted our rehearsal dinner, but I made the invites and mailed them out. I didn’t want her to have to worry about it. I made sure though to send her a draft of the invite and get her approval before I printed and sent them.

Definitely include all the details including a map with your invite. I made our rehearsal a half hour earlier than it needed to be because I knew people would be late (coming from work on a weeknight), so we had appetizers for the first half hour until the stragglers showed up, and then we started the rehearsal. It was a really good plan because at least 3 or 4 people showed up just in the nick of time!

Here’s what I did for our invites and maps:
