Invite your dad and ignore her. Don’t let her keep your father from your day. Invite her too, but ignore her and don’t let her get to you.

Picture yourself with a white veil that covers you head to toe.

Nothing can penetrate the veil- even your stepmother`s mean-spirited remarks.

I think you should invite them. If you don`t, you will never be able to undo the damage.

Unfortunately sometimes people prefer to criticize, rather than find the joy in each occassion. I agree with @armychica06. Invite them anyway, avoid contact with step-mom whenever possible. And, ignore her ‘suggestions’.

Mazel tov on your upcomig nuptials!

seems the problem is your SM not your dad – tell her to STFU and close down all information lines with her, if you dont over share with her then she cant bitch about it.   you are an adult, time to put less value in what SM is saying, people are always going to have their own opinions, you dont have to give them any attention.

Can you ask your dad to talk to her and mention that her comments are getting more and more hurtful?  Do you have a good relationship with her outside of wedding related issues?  I wouldn’t not invite your father because of comments your step mom made.  Why punish him for thinge he didn’t do or say?

I would send an invite to your dad. Addressed only to your dad. If he RSVPs that your step bros and step mom plan on being there tell him you do not have the space for them and let him know since she didn’t seem to pleased you didn’t think she would mind staying home from the event.
