@Sunnyone: I don’t see where she would need to be a bridesmaid/MOH.  Explain to her you have to keep the bridesmaids, including the MOH, in the family and you’re sure she understands.  Reference HER wedding if you have to πŸ˜‰  

I’m having my two nephews in our wedding, but NOT my SIL.  (her part is currently painting the cardbox my brother made, so HAH!)  

Maybe you could do something similiar and giver her another task.  IF you want.  Like make certain x or y or z is done the day of.  (Personally, it sounds like she’s jealous of what her daughters are gonna be wearing and wants in on it…)

You could also say the girls are going to be flower girls and not actual bridesmaids (just to be a PITA). πŸ˜‰

eta: also, tell her what your FI said.  IF he agrees to taking the *ahem* “blame”. πŸ˜‰  Somehow, I doubt he’ll complain. πŸ˜‰  

Say something along the lines of “we both had to agree on who would do what and he objected to you being in the wedding, but wants your girls to be flower girls because they are the perfect age.  I’m sure you understand us having to keep the bridesmaids and MOH in the family.”

The biggest problem I can see, is her saying if SHE isn’t in it, then the girls’ cant be in it.  It would suck, but I certainly wouldn’t bend on NOT having her be a part.

@Sunnyone: πŸ™‚  Glad I could help!  I’m kinda surprised no other bees have commented, though. 

I hope you can get this worked out and not have to worry about her trying to use the girls as leverage.  πŸ™‚

good luck!!!!
