Can you invite someone else along too? Maybe a close friend or auntie or someone, that way it’s not just you trying to make sure everything goes smoothly. I find it’s helpful to have another person there too, that way if mom gets well "mom-like" about something you have someone with you to help diffuse/change the subject or just carry along the conversation in a positive.
Also, since you are thinking about going to lunch, you could maybe find a place that doesn’t serve alcohol (a cute bakery or tearoom) so you don’t have to worry about mom having a drink & possibly offending Future Mother-In-Law.

Is it possible to invite both of your immediate families?  It’s a lot of pressure if it’s just a meeting of the moms but if you add in your siblings, dads, and/or stepdads (assuming they are married), it should be easier.

I really like emilee’s idea of dialing down the formality. Would it be possible to have both families over for a barbeque or just a informal Sunday lunch? With more people, a casual feel and less pressure it may feel less stilted and scary!
