Am I wrong not to invite my friend?

I told my friend I was going to a social event this weekend. She asked if I wanted her to go with me and I made a joke about her cramping my style as I am going with 2 men friends. They dont know her and I'm just a bit conscious that as she is a pensioner and old enough to be their mother there could be a people clash here. I'm not sure I want her to tag on as she's been with me to all sorts of events recently and I'd like to branch out and see some different people. Am I wrong to exclude her?

You aren't wrong but you could have said it was an invite only event otherwise you would have invited her.

I think you have been a bit tactless but your not wrong to want to do things on your own. It will probably have hurt her feelings.
Perhaps next time do as dipsy suggested or tell her they have invited you so you don't feel it's appropriate to invite other people they don't know
or you could try just being honest and telling her you wnat to find other new friends but she may still be upset that she can't be included
