I’m not really referring to your SO’s siblings, but more your siblings’ spouses or your SO’s siblings’ spouses.
I’m not very close to my brother’s wife (though our friendship has grown over the past year since I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in their wedding last summer (which I know is a common tradition.)). And I really don’t know SO’s brother’s wife very well at all, though she is an incredibly sweet girl. But since both of these ladies will be in my life/family for the next 50 or 60 years, part of me thinks it would be a nice touch to include them in the wedding party, even if we’re not close. But on the other hand, I know you’re supposed to pick the people who mean the most to you and who you are closest with.
Has anyone else included siblings’ spouses or SO’s siblings’ spouses in their wedding party?

My brother in law (sister’s husband) is a groomsman. In addition, all of our siblings are in the wedding party, as well.

@definitelymaybe: My brothers wife and my sister’s boyfriend (they have been together for 7 years) are both in my wedding – as well as my Fiance sister and her husband. I am super close with my brother’s wife and sister’s boyfriend though. If anything I wish i could get rid of his sister from the wedding party LOL

I included my husband’s sister because I wanted to include her as part of my new family; on the flip side though, I wouldn’t expect to be included in her wedding when she gets married.
But I think it really depends on the relationship and how close you are with the SIL.

I am having my SO brother’s wife. we have became friends in the 5 years SO and I have dated. My close GF’s thought it was odd that I included her in the wedding party, but like you said she will be in our life for years to come and we can look back and smile. I am also having her daughter (SO neice) as flower girl.

My brothers wife, my husbands brother, my sister and my sisters Fiance were all in our wedding, definitely a family affair!

My FI’s brother and sister are both in our wedding party. His sisters husband is also! But we are close to them and friends with them. His brothers wife isn’t (i don’t really like her, and we aren’t close at all).

All of our siblings are included, only my sister is married out of the bunch though so I decided to ask my bil to do a reading so he doesn’t feel left out

I had both my husband’s sister and her husband in our wedding party. But she married one of dh’s friends so it was that double connection.

Both of my brother’s wives will be bridesmaids. We are all pretty close so I didn’t even think twice.

Both my sister’s husband and my FSIL’s husband are both Groomsmen and my Future Sister-In-Law is a Bridesmaid or Best Man.

We’re only having direct siblings in our wedding party. We’re not super close to their SOs, so it’s not a big deal. Nobody is offended. If you think it will be a nice touch, go for it! For us, we already are bordering on “too many” so… LOL.
