    I’d get him to settle his differences with your mother before the wedding. I don’t know what the problem was but if you have continued to have a good relationship with your mother then it sounds as though his pride has been bruised. That’s not a good reason to ask the love of your life to reject a parent.

    I agree that he should try to settle his differences with your mom before the wedding. But if you think that it will only make things worse, then you should just ask that the two of them keep their distance and don’t pay any mind to the other. I was not on speaking terms with my Father-In-Law on the day of my wedding because of the way he humiliated my mother the day before, but we managed to get through the day without me tearing into him about what a jerk he was.

    I don’t like that your Fiance has asked you not to invite your mother. That kinda rubs me the wrong way. They may not get along but that’s a pretty serious request, and if you were to do that YOU would have to live with it for the rest of your life.

    Ask him how he would feel, if some day in the future, your son was engaged to someone who wanted him not to invite your Fiance to their wedding.
