I think if your mom is helping with the wedding it’s very rude not to invite her.  If you’re hosting, invite her.  If not, tell Future Sister-In-Law she needs to add her to the list.  Seems like a pretty important person to be left off the list!!

hmm. is there any way you can tell the brides family that it would mean a lot to your mother to be able to attend the shower and that she might be very hurt to be excluded?

it seems really odd to not include the Mother-In-Law for whatever reason. ESPECIALLY if she doesn’t know everyone that well – it would be  a good chance for her to become more familiar with her sons new family.

i think in this case, if you can gently mention it to someone, that would be the way to go. it seems very very odd to me that at a party of 50+ people, the mother of the groom wouldnt be invited.

Did you speak up and tell her that you think it would be nice if your mom was invited.  I feel like having an extra body, not to be rude about your mom, at the bridal shower wouldn’t be a big deal, especially if she’s helping out with wedding related stuff.  I would let her know that it would be nice for your mom to be invited and it would mean a lot to both of you, and see her reaction.  If she’s not OK with it, I don’t know what to say.  I really can’t imagine why not, other than the whole you’re not inviting her mom, malicious business.

I think when it comes down to most issues, communication is key . . . tell her that it would mean a lot to your mom.  You can communicate without seeming pushy, especially if you’re doing the planning.  Just try and see what comes of it.
