We actually chose to not have any family in our bridal party – they all have different tasks throughout the day. We used the reasoning of we wanted our family members to be able to spend time with our family, and actually be a part of the wedding – they’re readers, guest book attendants, etc.

While some people think it’s rude, our families thought it was the perfect plan – and it’s much less of a hassle!

I had a similar situation–my older sister and I clash BIG TIME, and only talk a few times a year (at most).  My younger sister and I chat daily, and she was my obvious Maid/Matron of Honor. I was so worried that my parents would make me have my older sister as a bridesmaid, but they said that they understood it would cause too much stress for me to have her around all day. I only have 3 bridesmaids in total though (my younger sis, FH’s sister, and my bff); I think it would hurt her feelings and upset my parents if I had like 8 bridesmaids and didn’t include her.  She is invited to the wedding though.
