Wow, WTF? This is your wedding, not hers. I think you should just be blunt. Call her and say you heard something about rehearsal spaces and want to clarify what exactly is going on (maybe something was miscommunicated?) If not, tell her you want to look into the options for rehearsal spaces and are not ready to commit to one. You appreciate the help and would be happy to look at the venue with her, but would prefer that she let the venue know it is not definite.

I dont understand this entirely,  you are having a wedding rehearsal AND a rehearsal dinner at seperate locations? And this Bridesmaid or Best Man booked the wedding rehearsal venue without telling you?  I always thought you rehearse the wedding at the actual venue where the wedding is held so everyone knows where to stand and all that…

If neither you nor your Fiance asked her to do this, then she has for some reason crossed the line.

I would speak with her to find out how this happened? Was there some sort of communication breakdown  that led her to believe she was to do this?

I would ask to see the venue and let her know that if it doesn’t work for you and your Fiance that you would be booking elsewhere.

It’s really odd, but I’m not sure how much of a big deal it is. Maybe she was just trying to be helpful and figured it fell to your Future In-Laws to decide since it’s close to the RD? Unless she’s usually malicious, it sounds like just a communication error.

Umm, you are not being ungrateful, it is totally not in the bridesmaids’ job description to book the rehearsal location and this is totally weird.  Why don’t you just change it? Cancel what she did (I doubt she paid for it?) and book whatever you want!

Yea, that does seem weird. Did you put her in charge of booking the rehearsal venue? Regardless of whether she booked the right one, was it even her job? If not, and you hate the place then just book another one yourself… because you didn’t ask for help. But it seems to me that you can rehearse anywhere if it’s not at your wedding venue, especially since you won’t be spending tons of time there.

I don’t understand…why is anyone booking a separate space for the rehearsal itself? Shouldn’t that be at your ceremony venue?
