Mend the gap.  

I have a brother with ‘on/off’ substance abuse problems.  I think most addicts have some depression/psychological problems that cause them to abuse.  It was important to my mother that he be in the wedding party so we asked him, even though we didn’t really want him in it.  I’m glad we asked him, I always want to be positive part in his recovery.  It’s not an easy situation but family (good or bad) just like marriage requires work and understanding.

Explain this to your mother and hopefully she understands.  It would be a shame for you to look back with regret.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Your in a very tough position….and I don’t have any great advice except say this- Your mom engaging in emotional blackmail and acting immature, so she is paying for the wedding so what, this is your day! Weddings are about love and respect, your mom should be able to put aside her feelings and attend.
