I am at a loss for how to do this. I want to do it right now!
I decided months ago I wanted my 18 year old sister to be my maid of honour (no other bridemaids) as it is a very small and intimate wedding.
The problem with asking is that we aren’t the closest and we’ve never really had a friendly relationship, with typical sister relationships we have our sweet moments and sometimes it almost feels like she is my friend – but then reality hits and we are moments from exploding at one another.
My STD just came in the mail and both my mother and sister have been poking around the box before I came over to get it. This was supposed to be the big reveal about the official wedding date with my family but before I do the unveil to my parents with the cards I want to confirm my sister is willing to do it so I can add to the excitement.
So any ideas for how to appraoch her? I’ve been thinking it’d be best to just flat out knock on her bedroom door and say “Do you want to be in my wedding as MOH?” and hand her a card but another part of me feels it isn’t special enough…
I never thought it’d be so hard to ask her a simple question!!! I have a half hour to do this before my mother arrives and removes the privacy!

While my family was gone I stopped at home and left two diamond candles and a note on the table. When they got home they were so happy! My sisters are 18 & 15 and are both my maids of honor. Maybe you could get your sister a gift, Esty has TONS.

@CBWFlove: I wish I could but this is something that has to be done asap. If they find out that I’ve finalized the date, got the STD in and still haven’t told them there’ll be drama… its happening tonight and my sister is being told in like 5 minutes!
I actually walked all the way upstairs to her room and had to walk all the way back down again because I was too nervous… it is hilarious that I am too nervous to ask my sister this!

So I did it and there was no reason for me to be nervous at all, she handled it like your typical teenager would.
I ended up having to knock on her door 3 times before she finally answered me and I am assuming she wasn’t fully decent because I wasn’t allowed to open her door. I gave her the simple question of if she’d like to be in the wedding, she said yes and then I had to slide the STD under the door for her. At first I thought she didn’t care but the sounds of her jumping out of bed to grab that card proved me wrong, she’s never moved that fast for anything.
So now I just have to work up the courage for the big reveal with my parents, luckily I got my sister to support me this time.
