@shortCakeSlayer:  How close are you with your FI’s family?  Are they aware of your mother’s..err..condition?  I can totally relate.  My mother was a severe alcoholic and I would have been moritified to introduce her to my husband’s family, let alone worry about how she would have acted at our wedding.  She passed away three years ago, so I never had to deal with any of that.. but I just don’t know what I would have done.

If you’re close with either your FMIL or FFIL I would sit down and have a frank discussion with them and explain the situation if you’re comfortable doing so.  That way they could either 1. be prepared  or 2.  be understanding of why you don’t want them to meet.  Do you think your mom will come around and want to attend your wedding?  If my mom was still around for mine I’m honestly not sure if I would have had her there.  She was too unpredictable.
