@Artificial-Sweetener:  Tell them you are excited to have them for dinner (or lunch) and then you are going to have a “girls only” evening.

They get to come, but you still get to have your time away.

 

If they still really want to go to wine country, suggest they go on their own, that weekend or another, but the evening will just be you and your friends, not family (from either side).

I will not allow my mother or FMIL or any of my aunts to come to my bachelorette. You are totally justified in being annoyed that they invited themselves.

@Artificial-Sweetener:  This is probably a good time to set boundaries with her. Just because she asks (repeatedly) doesn’t mean you have to concede. This is something that she should get over. Who wants to see their FDIL get lingerie from her friends? If you don’t stand up to her now, it is likely to be hard to convince her that she has to do what you say when your birthing your first child.

OP, I think you really need to put your foot down here, and tell her no. This is YOUR party with YOUR friends. The shower is one thing, the bachelorette is another. You have (at least) seven more people coming than you planned. Don’t give her any more details, and just say no (or she WILL end up in the delivery room with you.)
