I think you should stand your ground on where it is being held.  If you don’t want it at your venue, then tell her that sorry, but we are not having it there. This isn’t a shower where you should be surprised by what is going on.  The rehersal is for you and your bridal party (and anyone else involved or that you invite) to sit and discuss the next days events or things that need to get done. The rehersal is something that the bride should know about a head of time, because you not only have to co-ordinate with the person marrying you, but also those involved in the wedding.  Ask her if she will plan it with you, or maybe allow her to do a surprise shower, but not rehersal.

For ours, we are renting one of the conference rooms at the hotel in which everyone is staying.  We are just catering in some Italian food. You don’t want to have that night be stressful, I feel it should be organized and that you should be in on it.  If she wants to surprise you with a certain meal, that’s a little different.

I hope this helps!  Good luck!

I think your Fiance should tell his mother that you absolutely do not want to use the same venue for reception and rehearsal..
