I would always include the sisters if he has any, even if you don’t know or get along with them that well, they’re family. Anyone else though is not assumed.

FI doesn’t have sisters but he has a cousin that is like his sister.  he lived with her for 5 years.  she is not in our wedding party, i did not want her to be a BM.

her daughters are our flower girls.  i didn’t want kids at the wedding.  but we compromised that the girls can be part of the ceremony.

my husband has 4 sisters and they weren’t in our wedding (i don’t even think they were bridesmaids for each other). we wanted a small wedding party, so having my sisters in law, plus the girls who i “really” wanted, would have been too many. i just had 3 girls- my cousin and 2 good friends. i’m mexican too, if it matters.

I’m having my FI’s 2 first cousins in my wedding…I mean our wedding!  I’ve become close with them because his family gets together like every other week.  It does get annoying, I have to say, but I have fun with those 2 girls.  My 2 first cousins are gonna be in it also though because I’ve always been close to them.  I feel like it will make it fun for both sides of our families this way.  If it weren’t for his 2 first cousins then I wouldn’t be having anyone from his side in the wedding…you don’t have to have anyone from his family in your wedding. Weddings these days can be any way you want them to be!

I asked SIL to be a BM and she was a little in shock! She definitely hadn’t expected to be asked. (Not that we don’t get along, we’d just never had a convo just the two of us until after her baby was born)

If they would like to be BMs, I would invite them!
