My Fiance has one older half-sister and two younger sisters. All are aged 30 and up. I did not ask any of them to be my bridesmaids but I did ask the 13 year old daughter of the half-sister (her 15th bday is my actual wedding day) to be my junior Bridesmaid or Best Man, at the request of my Fiance.
The half sister kind of will be involved since she will be around alot because her daughter is in the bridal party. The younger sisters do not like their half sister and I feel they will feel some type of way that they aren’t involved. We would like to include them somehow but not sure what we could ask them to do.
I could ask one to read but I do not want to have two readers. Any other suggestions or creative ways to get them involved without them feeling like its a chore?
It doesn’t even have to be during the ceremony, it could also be another special way.

@angcamp84: If your wedding ceremony includes a portion where there are offertory gifts brought to the altar, maybe you can have the sisters bring them up?

@Olive12 we are not having a religious ceremony. It’s going to be on the outside deck of the restaurant where our reception is being held so its just a quick little exchange of vows. Nothing fancy.

@angcamp84: since it’s that simple, I’d just not give them a role. I don’t think they’ll mind if it’s that small of a wedding party/ceremony…?

@W292737 you’re probably right, I just really wanted them to feel included.

@angcamp84: if you make programs, just make sure that siblings are acknowledged. or maybe one reads and the other is a hostess?

Maybe acknowledge them as your “sisters” in a speech at the reception?
