- Wedding: April 2011
My cousin is like the sister I always wanted. My actual sister and I do not get along at all, no matter how hard I’ve tried – we just leave it as we’re complete opposites and will never really get along. 🙁
We’re having a destination wedding we weren’t going to have anyone stand with us because we didn’t want to add any more expenses, like dresses or tuxes, to our guests. But, we changed our minds and decided to at least a Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor, so we picked his brother and my sister. The only reason I asked my sister to stand with me is to avoid any family arguments, and hurt feelings. I would much rather have my cousin stand with me. She is such a kind, wonderful person and she is completely understanding of why I picked my sister, but I still want to do something special for her, to let her know how much I appreciate her, without having another attendant.
