Do you feel uncomfortable inviting your dad’s mom?

@mrscandy, I think it’s a one and a half hour drive plus a flight. 

@divergirl: I don’t know what your relationship is like with your dad’s mom, but surely she would understand that you want to go dress shopping with your mom, right? I think most people understand it’s a special mother-daughter experience. So hopefully she would understand that.  Maybe send her pictures afterwards and ask her opinion on a couple of dresses? Or is there any other way she could be involved from a distance?

Oh, and I would tell your dad to stop interfering and causing trouble on purpose (and actually, I’d be tempted to tell him to deal with his mom, since he’s the one who purposely upset her.).

You could always call your paternal grandmother before the trip and ask her opinion about gown styles and ask her about what it was like when she got married, etc. Just letting her know that you care and want to share this experience with her in whatever way you can over the distance will help undo the harm your dad has done.
