    I think it would hurt her feeling to ask her there after you already leave … a little like you don’t want to see her, not really the tone I would want to set on my wedding day.

    I am just not telling my Future Mother-In-Law we are getting our hair and makeup done, but we don’t really like each other so it was never really an option

    I would say if you dont really want her there dont offer… you could risk offending her… I personally LOVELOVELOVE my FMIL  and would love to have her there every step of the way… So when I get to that point I will absolutely be inviting her to our house though I know shell want to be at her house with her son and the boys getting ready (and she doesnt need someone to do her hair its super short)… but I think not allowing her to be there while you get ready might be a slam?  I could be wrong

    If you don’t want her there, don’t extend the offer. Be aware that there will be many situations where you have no choice but to hang around her.

    I had no intention of inviting my Future Mother-In-Law, but then she asked if someone would be in the suite to do her hair and I wasn’t fast enough on my feet to say anything but yes.  Now I’m thinking about having all the girls go to the salon instead of having the lady come to us because Future Mother-In-Law has typical old lady hair, and I don’t even know what sort of supplies we’d need to do her hair.  <sigh>
