Honestly I love my Maid/Matron of Honor to death and she is a great friend but the problem is I cant stand her mother!! She in one of those people who talks about herself all the time and is always talking about money and what she has and blah blah blah She is also a paranoid person and thinks everything bad is going to happen in every situation. I try my best to be nice because she is my best friends mother but sometimes she drives me nuts!! She also drives my fiance nuts too and everytime she sees him she basically talks his ear off….we cant help but leave places early whenever she is around because frankly we just have a headache!! We are having a destination wedding and for some reason she has this idea in her head that she is invited. I dont know how to go about this situation because she isnt invited! I dont want to hurt my MOH’s feeling but this is our wedding and I dont want someone there who is going to drive me and the other guests bonkers for a whole week. Help!!

I don’t think you need to invite her at all. I am inviting my MOHs mom but only because I know her very well…

I think only if you know her well. To be honest, you aren’t going to be talking to her, so if it will save face, I say just do it and ignore her. 🙂

I only invited my MOH’s mom because she’s my mom too! (MOH was my sister)
You definitely do not have to invite your MOH’s mom.

Hmmm that could be tricky. Does your Maid/Matron of Honor know how you feel about her mom? Would it upset her if you didn’t invite her? It is your wedding, end of story. You should only invite you want to invite.

I didn’t know you had to invite the MOH’s family members unless if the Maid/Matron of Honor is a relative…?

@hfrey12 I think she kinda know I dont like her mom too much. I used to like her but lately she drives me bonkers! Also to top it off her mom’s boyfriend acts like a complete childish moron when he drinks and we are goin to an all inclusive resort for our wedding and I cant ahve that drama. My parents would be horrified!!!
@yellowshoe I dont think it’s an obligation to invite the peopl in your bridal parties family but the part that makes it hard is that me and the MOH’s sister are also good friends so her 2 kids are all in my wedding. I think her mother feels she should be there too and if she wasnt soo annoying I would allow it! I know this is going to be a tricky one but like Hfrey12 said this is my wedding!!!!

Definitely not. You should invite the people who mean something to you. If she was a close family friend, maybe, but not if you would rather she’s not there!
