I might ask her in input on decisions that are not terribly close to your heart, so if his mom has a distinct reaction/opinion that is different than yours, you don’t have to explain why you hurt her feelings and didnt ask her advice. if your Future Mother-In-Law lives 2+ hours away, perhaps you can email her and ask for inout, things like cake flavors, shoes, bridesmaid gifts, etc.

I would go with how you feel. If you think/know you are going to feel awkward with her there for something so special as dress shopping then don’t invite her. Even though this is her last “baby” getting married, you are the bride and that is usually something that traditionally is a mother/daughter event. What about bringing her along for the cake or floral appointments or even picking out suits/tux for the men?

I don’t think you need to include them in anything other than the shower, possibly the bachelorette party since his sisters are your BMs, and the rehearsal dinner.  I would never have considered including his mom dress shopping or anything else really.  Honestly unless she was paying for something specifically I wouldn’t think twice about it.

I think you are doing a great job of including his family. You could always invite her to one of your fittings.

Maybe invite her on a ‘date’ to pick out her dress? That’s what I’m doing.
