That is a hard situtaion.  Maybe your Future Mother-In-Law wanted to send the invite to your fathers girlfriend as more or a courtesy?  If she will not know anyone at the shower and is obviously aware of your mother’s feelings than see more than likely won’t attend. 

Still you have a point.  If it was me I would have wanted my Future Mother-In-Law to confer with me first.

Hm, that’s too bad. Your Future Mother-In-Law definitely should’ve talked to you about it first. Do you think your father’s gf will even come?

At my SIL’s shower, her mother was there of course, but her step-mother was as well. My SIL did not want her involved in any way with the wedding, does not have a good relationship with her, freaks if you refer to her as her step-mother (she doesn not consider her any kind of mother – not even a step mother) but it worked out that her mother sat at a table on one side of the room and her step mom sat on the other side of the room seperately and all worked out. Her step mother just kind of found people to talk to. Perhaps this would just work itself organically once the shower gets started?

I have to say I kind of argee with sending her an invitation it was the right thing to do. However I can see why you would be upset about how it was done, behind your back.  All and all I would say just let it go. You did say your Dad’s girlfriend wouldn’t know anyone else invited so she may not come anyway. If she does then It would be a good idea to ackowledge the fact that she is there to support YOU not to cause issues. I’m sure your Mum will understand and you’ll find that they will most likely say away from eachother and be nice to eachother for your sake.

Just enjoy the fact that so may people are coming to share this wonderful occasion with you.
