Sounds like you have two issues here...one about leaving your daughter in general and one about how a trip might affect your breastfeeding relationship.
At this stage of her nursing life, you may need to leave your decision for a few weeks (poss. a few days) away from the wedding. She's still changing so much, you may find that your now "predictable" nurser may become unpredictable and newborn-ish in a few months, and you being away for a night may be very hard for her at that time. You also may find, whether her nursing is the same then or not, that when you return she may want to nurse very frequently, because she may feel a need to reconnect.
How do you really feel about going? Are you comfortable leaving her? Has your mom looked after DD before? Is DD comfortable being with grandma? If not, maybe some short babysitting sessions w/grandma will help prepare her?
I guess the short answer is, now may be too early to plan your trip. Play it by ear and see if you can make your decisions closer to July. You'll know what to do then. Best wishes!
