Honestly, I’m sure the mom would understand. I bet she kinda knows that you have grown apart. You could either ask her if she’s okay or offended by it, or ignore it and hope she doesn’t assume the invite is for the daughter too.

Hmmm I think it makes it a little difficult if you know the mom would be upset that her daughter wasnt invited.  Are your parents friends with the mom?  Maybe it could be that the invitation is coming from your parents and not you which would explain why you arent inviting your daughter.  If you really want them there and think she wont come without her daughter Id say to just suck it up and invite the daughter and hope she doesnt come (or avoid her all night).  I think the most important thing sounds like you want the mom there so you should probably do what is necessary to make it so the mom will come.  Good luck!

I don’t think there’s any way for you to invite the mom but not the daughter without it looking very weird and insulting people.

I think it would be very difficult to invite Mom but not Daughter.  EVen if she knows you and Daughter have grown apart, that is still her child and she will likely be offended on Daughter’s behalf. 

On the hand, when it comes to R, I would warn Mom that R will be at the wedding (if you choose to invite R) then it’s up to Mom to behave herself.
