While reading your thread the first thought I had was to pay for a hotel room for them, so ITA with your friend. Gifting a vacay will be a lot less offensive than just booking a hotel room. Maybe book and pay for a few activities for them to do while there so it seems more like a holiday. Once things are paid for and booked she’s less likely to put up a fight.

Yikes!  I can see how having no breaks from your mom would be stressful.  The truth is if the tension is this bad now, it will not be any better during the week before the wedding with her constantly around.  That sounds way too stressful.  But here’s a thought – if you’re reserving blocks of hotel rooms for guests, perhaps you can work out a good deal with the hotel for your parents to stay the week before.  This would also give them an opportunity to spend more with with other family and guests, which they may prefer.  I like your friend’s mini vacation idea too.

Send them away for those days or give her lists of stuff you need done, while you’re at work, to keep her busy and tired at night. 

I really think your friend is onto something with the mini vacay if you guys can afford it.  Or even paying for their hotel stay.
