I think that you should just tell her the truth. Don’t pin the blame on Future Mother-In-Law or anything, just tell her that you’re really really sorry, between the other 100’s of guests to invite you overlooked her, but that you would really like for her to be there. Honesty is the best policy!

I think you should tell the truth also, just say that you got the list from the Future Mother-In-Law and sent the invitiations and then realized after she had said something that she wasnt on the list, even though you would love to have her there.

I would include a handwritten note in the invitation that expresses your real desire for her to be there as well as your embarrassment and regret for the delay in the invitation, while totally obscuring who is to blame. Whose fault it is is not important.

I would just say that of course you want her to be there and you are so sorry and embarrassed for the delay, amongst all the names and addresses hers got lost, which you only discovered through your Future Mother-In-Law last week and it caught you totally by surprise because of course you want her there. She has been an important part of fiance’s life and you couldn’t imagine having the day without her and so please we really hope we will see you there.
