She seems REALLY excited for you to be getting married. I don’t think she means you any harm and if she wants to throw your a bridal party why not let her! I do think its a tad odd that she would invite people that wouldn’t be invited to the wedding but thats it.

Well, you could always ask her to throw you an engagement party. Its wierd that she’s so consumed with you getting married. Maybe she’s trying to be helpful? Maybe her marriage is going thru issues so she’s trying to focus on other things? I’m not sure. If you don’t want anything, just say no thanks, you don’t want a shower. I mean, you get to celebrate how you want. If you’d rather keep to yourself & close friends & family, that’s awesome! She should respect you & your choices. Do you see her often? I’d just try to change subjects or avoid her for a little while if its becoming too much.

Wow, that is a really tricky situation. She’s really overstepping – I feel uncomfortable FOR you. Sounds like she’s more excited to take center stage & take over your planning rather than be happy for you.

If you’re not sure whether or not you’ll invite her to the wedding, I wouldn’t have her host anything for you. She would likely be hurt or offended if she went to all that trouble & then wasn’t invited. To be honest, it sounds like she wants to do all this because she’s trying to solidify an invite from you.

Also – she’s wrong about the etiquette – if you invite someone to a shower you HAVE to invite them to the wedding. It seems like she’s more focused on getting presents than anything else.
