Does it have to be you? She may be super embarrassed if her own child brings this up. Does she have a sibling or a good friend with good sense to whom she listens? You could approach them with your worries and see if they can delicately address them.

If it has to be you then you just need to lead with the usual: I love you, I respect you, but I am worried about how you’re dealing with things lately. The divorce seems to have knocked you for six, which is completely understandable, but I’m wondering if there’s anything I can do to help.

Things are a lot easier to discuss once you break through that horrible barrier.

Speak to her privately about your concerns.

Have someone in charge of the microphone, and aware that under no circumstances is she to get access to the mike.

Maybe ask her to write a speech so she has her moment and doesn’t interrupt anything you don’t want her to? Or just talk to her and tell her how you feel.

Lots of weddings have really awkward family moments, and you might not be able to control her – if you can take it in stride with kindness and good humor as best as you can, you’ll end up looking really good :0
