@Asia:  Wait? What did your mother change and didn’t tell you? PLEASE say you corrected this.

As far as the woman with the bad child, call her yourself and say no. Explain the room has been given away and she will have to pay for it.

@Asia:  About the friend thing – normally, I would say it’s your mother’s job to fix it. However, I’m not sure I’d trust her in this case, so I recommend that you do it.

Maybe call the friend and say something like:

“I’m really sorry for the confusion, but I think there’s been some miscommunication. The room my mom offered you is already promised to someone, so I’m afraid you’ll have to book your own room. Also, we gave our final numbers to the caterer and venue after the RSVP date and we didn’t realize you planned to bring your daughters, so they weren’t included in headcount. We’re not allowed to add people this close to the wedding.”

Some of it might be a lie, but it might help. Also, make sure you tell your mom ASAP – as soon as you hang up with the friend, so she doesn’t contradict you. She might be pissed, but after hearing directly from the bride, the friend is less likely to take your mom at her word if she tries to contradict you.
