I would graciously say something such as “Ladies I appreciate your concern. Ultimately who we invite from FI’s family is up to him and I feel like this is something you should address with him if you have these type of concerns” This way it leaves you as neutral and takes the pressure off of you without you taking sides.

Just tell them that it’s sad that there is a divorce, but Fiance father’s family is still FI’s family and you would appreciate they stay out of it.

I think it should be a private conversation between you and your Fiance, and at some point maybe invite his mother into the conversation and tell her either the decision you have made or how you both feel about the situation, and ask to her to please relay that information to other family members that may “have a problem with it”.

sorry to hear that.  Divorce is ugly.  I agree with the comments above on how to proceed.

Hope it doesn’t get in the way of your happy plans.

good luck hun
