ClassicCorvette:  It’s amazing how many dysfunctional moms come out of the woodwork during wedding planning.

If my Mom behaved like that early in the planning process, I would gift her with an etiquette book- “so that we can both look up what’s proper”.

I would not let her give engagement/shower without inviting inlaws.  Try to explain to MIL that yur mom has trouble dealing with strangers, and see if your other family members can try to make up with extra friendliness.
