I would list her as “friend of the bride,” which is still the truth…or, just skip listing any relations.

@peaches13:  Yeah, I agree with Peaches.  There’s no need to make it any more complicated.

Friend of the bride? Partner of (brother)? Wait and don’t print programs until 2 weeks before the wedding in case they get engaged? (only half kidding there)

@peaches13:  I agree, these are the only non-awkward options.

Yep, I’d just go with Friend of the Bride.

Not sure when your date is, but I would honestly caution you to wait until about 6 months out from the wedding to ask these gals. I think it is fantastic that you are including them, and their relationships with the brothers sound wonderful, but you just never know. Things can turn awkward in a hurry if there is a breakup. If you wait until the wedding is within 6 months to ask them, you significantly reduce the risk.

@NAvery:  Good point! I just now noticed the 2017 date…many of the issues on the BM board come from girls who wished they hadn’t made decisions about their bridal party so early. Beware of that, OP!
