I have a slight dilemma!
I come from a huge, blended family – 3 sisters, and a brother.
FI is an only child and doesn’t really associate with his extended family at all.
Obviously I would love to have my sisters, and brother in our bridal party – but having my yongest sister being 11 on our wedding day, and my brother only 12 this seems hard. In addition to the fact that FI is very introverted and so I don’t think he even has that many people he is close enough to to feel comfortable asking to be groomsmen!
I have decided to have only my best friend as a “bridesmaid” officially, to sign the registrar and walk down the isle. My sisters and brother will still be involved in every aspect, getting ready with the guys and girls, and things like that – the only difference would be walking down the isle…do you think this is ok?
It seems to me that it will just eliminate huge amounts of drama!

If its what you’re happy with than its ok. But I’ll say there’s no way I’d get married without my brothers & sisters. And they feel the same.

I think this is fine. Neither my nor my FI’s siblings are in our BP, and I do think it’s a lot less drama that way.

@MsSparklyBee: I’m in a sticky situation, my step-sister is 20, and very uninterested in weddings, from there my sisters are 16 and 10. My brother is 11 at the moment. I’d love them to be there, but only one of them can even sign our registrary and I don’t really want it to be my step-sister! Their ages are making this hard. Now I feel bad for not having them walk down the isle 🙁

@geekspice: Phew! So glad I’m not the only one thinking that way – their ages make it difficult too, I do need to keep in mind I still need help planning! lol. I don’t feel so horrible now!
