So I didn’t ask my future SIL to be in my bridal party. She’s quite a bit older than me and I really thought she wouldn’t want to be in it. Maybe it was a silly assumption but whatever, it’s the decision I made.
I would like her to be a part of the wedding, though – and I heard from my future MIL that she wants to be a part of it… I don’t know if I want readings in our ceremony. Anyone have other ideas on how to include her?
Thanks so much!!

@Esquia82: My SIL isn’t in my briadal party either. She is also quite a bit older than me. I’m thinking of asking her to do a reading as she is quite out spoken and confident. I haven’t asked her yet though… I’d also be interested to see other ways I could inlcude her incase she says no to the reading!

I am hoping that my FSIL will be able to do a reading, but if you don’t want readings, maybe she could play something during the ceremony or sing or hand out programs?

You can definitely include her in any bridesmaid activities, like spa days, getting ready pre ceremony, get your nails done together, etc.
i wouldn’t give her too much of a ‘job’ at the reception because she should be able to enjoy it. But if you want to ask her to hand out programs or a reading, that woudl be nice, and she knows many of the guests sinc she is immediate family.
