Honey, I didn’t even invite my OWN mother to get ready with me. During those few hours, there was nothing more important than staying calm and maintaining amazing energy. I didn’t allow one single soul who I thought might have thwarted that. I encourage you to do the same.

…but at the end of the day, you have just as much right as your Fiance to just get ready with your girls as he has to get ready with his boys. So no I wouldn’t have her.

brethebride052116:  That day should be about what you feel comfortable with, but honestly, I don’t think you will ever be able to repair your relationship with her if she isn’t included. Regardless of things that have happened in the past, that is a moment where you will all become family, so offering that peace sign would be a nice gesture.

I love my Mother-In-Law and she got ready with us, but I think that even if I didn’t like her, that would be a moment that I would want her to be there for and be happy for me. If anything you could use it someday to remember a moment that you two shared where everything went well or she will show her true colors around your bridesmaids and mother and they will put her in her place.
