No stick to your guns and what you feel is right. If you know your mom is going to cause problems and make this a negative experience instead of the positive experience it should be. if you have already explained to your mom you don’t want to have her go than she has no reason To get up set

You know your mom best.  However,  she is your mom.  I’m assuming the grandmother coming is your dad’s mom?  Is there anyone that would tell your mom?

I think you MOHs are very wise.  Inviting SM and FMIL seems like rubbing salt in a wound.

I would absolutely not invite your mom and I wouldn’t let that stop you from inviting your grandmother and step-mom. Your mom knows she’s not coming, and why, so she should understand. I wouldn’t flaunt it to her, but I wouldn’t try to hide it from her either. She’s a big girl. She understand that these are sometimes the consequences to having loud oppinions on everything.

FutureMrsCalloway:  I’m so glad no one will say anything.  Yay!  You do deserve to have the best day shopping for your dress.  I’m glad you have a lot of love going with you.

Six of you are going, you don’t need a seventh person.

FutureMrsCalloway:  Rethink.  I think your friends are right. OR just bring her along.  Sounds like she would actually give you HONEST feedback on whatever dresses you try on.
