I don’t see a problem with it.  She could also have found some guy on the street to bring as a date, since she (like everybody else) is allowed to have one.

@doubtingdebbieah:  What’s the problem? Don;t you allow dates for your guests’ comfort? How is this different?

You extended a +1 which means she can bring whoever she wants. Wouldn’t you rather have her sister there than some random dude you’ve never met anyways?

@doubtingdebbieah:  Um, no. Who in the world would someone flirt with at a wedding if everyone is bringing dates? 

Nobody likes to attend social functions alone. It’s sucks. That’s the purpose of allowing dates.

That’s the downside of extending open +1’s.  As soon as you don’t designate a specific name you relinquish control over who that person chooses to bring.  She’s probably not really considering the cost and maybe thinks “hey, wingman to flirt with cute groomsmen”.

I don’t see a problem with it. She could just invite some random guy, but she is inviting her sister. Also, she is your bm and I’m assuming she has done a lot to be apart of your day ( buying her dress, showers, etc). I don’t think it would be fair to let everyone bring a date and not let her bring her sister. Personally I would rather have my bridesmaid bring a sister that loves and know she will have a good time with, than someone I don’t even know.
