    I think it’s 100% fine to just invite your SILs.  How awful if your MIL gets upset about her DIL’s wanting to spend some quality time together.  If she does throw a fit, have your DH talk to her and gently say that you were looking forward to a fun girls weekend with your future sisters!

    MissBridge:  Just invite the FSILs and if your FMIL says something, say that you want some “sister time.” It’s kind of hard to really get to know someone your own age with someone much older (who kind of “outranks” them) around.

    If their partners come, then it’s “family time” and it’s more important to invite her. In that case I wouldn’t do it – I think it would be hard to avoid her being hurt. 

    If it’s just the sisters, I think you can get away with calling it “sister time”. Just tell them to avoid mentioning it beforehand if possible.
