It was rude of them to not invite your mum to the hen do, but it sounds like you’re both throwing fuel on the fire as fast as you can. Be mature, take the high road, and don’t attract more drama into your life than is already there. And let your mom fight her own battles – unless she gave birth to you yesterday and you’re typing from your crib, she’s an adult and can handle herself.

yeah it’s been a real slap in the face for my mum, she even bought sisters and her fiance’s old home so they could move because the sister was pregnant with the baby that my mum looks after and their house just wasn’t selling, I know it’s not about money or anything but they wouldn’t be able to have this wedding if it wasn’t for her helping with the house buying fiasco.
Thanks for your kind message, it’s lovely to just vent!

I really do understand what you mean, but my mum isn’t adding fuel, she really doesn’t want me to fall out with the sister and wants me to attend the wedding. I really am trying to swallow the hurt and get over it. Just really needed to vent. Thanks for your message.

it sounds like there’s some underlying issues between your mum and her sisters. As much as you want to stand up for her I’d let her fight her own battles and be there for her if/when she needs you.
Wedding wise – it sucks that your uncles Girlfriend will be there but I’d say try and be the bigger person here. Instead of drawing attention to yourself by not going (which uncles Girlfriend will prob notice), go along and support your mum. If you want to do something to help her I’d say that’d be the best thing.
