I am having troubles with choosing the people to be in my wedding party. Actually, I’m not!!! I know who I want in my wedding but I am worried it will cause big problems in my family. I want my best friend and my childhood friend whom I am very very close with and I want my sister. Only one of my sisters though. I am very close with her and need her to be in my wedding. I don’t really have a relationship with my other two sisters. Can I have only the one in my wedding. Did I mention that my best friend is also my sister in-law?? Not sure if this matters, just feel that it might cause more problems having my one sister and my sister in-law and not my other sisters. Please help!!!

I think you can have just the sister you are actually close to.

I’m having both my younger sisters and my best friend as bridesmaids, they don’t really have to do much though, and I figured it was the best way to keep the peace. I’d say it depends on your relationship with your other sisters, if it’s still good but not super close I would still have them as bridesmaids, and maybe have the closer sister/best friend as maid of honor. If having them as bridesmaids will totally be a stressful disaster though, don’t. My older siblings won’t even be invited for this reason.

I only had one of my sisters in my first wedding. If I had all of them there would have been no room for my friends.
I was also not in the wedding party of any of my sisters.

Only you know your family, but if you think this will cause drama, I’d make them BMs because it really doesn’t seem worth all it. If you make them BMs, all they have to do is buy a dress and show up.

If you’re only having two girls anyway, and you are leaving two sisters out (instead of just one) I think it’s fine. It would be different if you had 6 bridesmaids but didn’t include your sistsers, or if you included all but one sister.

I think a situation like this really just depends on the family dynamic. There are some families that would absolutely expect all sisters to be included in a Bridal Party regardless of the relationship those sisters have with each other. And then there are other families that would totally not mind and it wouldn’t cause any drama. If you have the latter then I would say go for it – this is your wedding and you know best who you want standing up there with you on your day. If it’s the former… I’m not really sure what the best course of action would be.

my older sister didnt have me or my younger sister in her wedding, She had her Best Freinds, my middle sister and her 2 New sister -in-laws. I was a little tiffed but then i stepped back a moment and realized, its not a big deal. Its her wedding and we were there and thats all that really matters 🙂 hope this helps. Not to mention you have a bit of time before you actually get married and you never know you may change your mind. Trust me! 🙂
