First, your mom shouldn’t invite people without your permission, paying or not.  Tell her, again, about the centerpiece situation.  Second, your brother is an idiot.  You don’t bring people to family events when no one likes them.  DUH!  So I say you’re doing it right.  Don’t seat her at the head table, nor your mother’s date.  Keep it fair across the board, one SO can’t sit at the head table unless everyone’s SOs sit at the head table (with the exception of you and your hubs of course!).

I would totally stick to your guns with the brother’s date. I’m not usually like that, but for some reason it’s annoying me that he is saying she won’t come "unless she sits at the head table". Well, GOOD, you didn’t want her there anyway.


As for your mother, maybe you could talk to her about not bringing a date because you’ll need her support that day?
