Whoever is hosting and paying for the party has the ultimate decision on guests. Since that’s your mom she needs to be the one to put her foot down and give a hard NO to your Mother-In-Law. Since this event is being held in her house she definitely has the ultimate say in the matter.

If your Mother-In-Law wants to throw a tantrum about it, let her. If she decides not to talk to you as well, let her. She’ll get over it eventually (probably when your SIL steals from her at some point) and until then she will be excluding herself from what should be an exciting time, so it’s her loss. This is not your fault, it’s hers! Stand your ground if asked why SIL wasn’t invited and tell her that your mother is hosting so you don’t have complete control over the guest list and direct any further questions to her.
