I think most brides go through similar issues.  You really just have to decide what is more important to you and then just put your foot down.  Then just don’t bring it up, it will eventually die down.

Why don’t you suggest to your mom that she hosts a party/post-wedding celebration with the extended family so they have a chance to meet you/fiance?

Yes, it’s your day but this is also your family. Maybe there’s a win/win solution?

This is what greatly put me off inviting ANYONE. I was all for eloping until my Fiance said he wanted parents at the very least. i remember when my brother was getting married hearing the old line of “You’ll have to invite so-and-so, their neighbour and their dog” etc. It’s annoying and to be honest, I’d sooner invite a bunch of randoms off the street than some of my family members!

Be upfront and stick to your guns. The last thing you want it to look back on your wedding photos and pull a cringey face at the guests…. not that I do that with my bro’s wedding pics haha.
