It is in poor taste to invite someone to a wedding shower, but not the wedding.  I would casually mention it to those who are throwing the shower– you might not be offended, but if that mistake was made more than once it could end up being a ig drama.

I wouldn’t say anything. Sometimes financial restraints limit who you can have to the wedding and bride probably wanted to invite your mom but couldn’t. If your mom does not want to go then just RSVP for one and let it be. Why make someone feel bad? I know we would love to invite twice as many as we can afford and already feel badly about those we can’t. Take the shower invite as an indication the bride values your mom.

I went to a wedding shower a few weeks ago with my mum and neither of us are invited to the wedding.  We have known the bride since the day she was born.  However, the venue they are having the wedding at is very small so I understand why they were limited on who to invite.  I wouldn’t take offence to it.
