That’s a bummer situation.  I would tell her pretty much what you stated here.  That both times she took you dress shopping for Prom, you felt rushed and could clearly tell she didn’t want to be there, and you didn’t want your wedding dress shopping experience to be the same way.  I would definitely preface this with an apology though, saying you never meant to hurt her feelings, but that you truly didn’t think it was something she was interested in or would enjoy, and that in hindsight you should have given her the option of going.  Then suggest that when your dress arrives, you can make a special day out of it – have it just be the two of you, grab a nice lunch and make a little show out of presenting yourself to her in your wedding dress?  Maybe that’ll make her feel better.

It’s too bad that you didn’t think to have the dress put on hold and bring your Mom back to the shop so you could buy it then, but it’s too late for hindsight.

Make a sincere apology. She will get over it.
