Wow. Good for you for standing up for yourself and your aunt. Don’t get in the middle of the drama. It’ll just make wedding planning that much worse.

julesbeeb:  You have done the right thing. Don’t let your mom use *your* wedding as an opportunity to fight *her* fights.

Invite everyone you want to invite, and if there are people who don’t get along: sit them well apart from each other.

Yikes. Definitely invite your aunts to the wedding.

Also…I only know your family from what you’ve shared here…but it seems like maybe your mother is the cause of the “drama” that’s always going on. There might be issues with your sister’s baby daddy so your mom chooses to move the WHOLE family to a different state? Might not be the most stable decision.

Hopefully your mom will be nice for your wedding’s sake.

Agreed. Good job for holding your ground. It’s your wedding day, invite who you and your fiance want. A wedding is not a time to seek revenge. I would do what aussiemum1248:  said and just sit them separately. If they are adults, they will behave and respect this special day. Good luck!

You did the right thing. Your mom needs to keep her familial drama to herself and not let it bleed out into others’ affairs. Seat them far away from each other.

Your Mom sounds crazy and selfish. Moving to a different state and telling you who to invite at your wedding are selfish things she is doing to make herself feel better rather than be honest with you that a) she would rather not sit hear your aunt because of their difference of opinions and b) letting go of control and knowing your pregnant sister has to stand up for herself and take care of her situation. She can’t solve everything on her terms, only communicate her needs.
