grapesaregood :  I just read your update! I’m so so glad you found the strength, and were encouraged by your mom, to not include your abusice sister in what will likely be one of the most (if not the most) joyous occaisions of your life! Happy Marriage to you!

grapesaregood :  I think you are making an excellent choice. I would never invite anyone I had to cut out of my life to a wedding celebration just because “that’s what you’re supposed to do”. Glad your fiancé and mom and dad are on board!

Your mothers “heartbreak” is not your business. Repeat “not my circus, not my monkeys”. Not your business. As someone, who has dealt with plenty of family chaos and unhealthy dynamics from my own family your wedding is for you and your fiance. Not about mending relationships. If your mother is throwing you the shower simply invite your sister and roll with the punches. There’s only so much control we have when we aren’t the ones paying/hosting our own showers, but she is not owed an invite to the wedding. Start making these emotional boundaries with your mother. As soon as you start, things will get easier.
