I’m just having two maids of honor and two best men, no bridal party. The last wedding we went two had two of each plus a party.

@Missykate:  is he close with her? Is that his only sister? I would honestly be hurt if my brother was getting married and I wasn’t included in the bridal party. it is a nice gesture to include her. 

You can have a maid & matron of honor. I’ve been in weddings tha have had that.

I think its fine 🙂 
I would say no to the sister being in the party – you arent close. The girls are for you to choose and the guys are for him to choose. So you choose the two people you are closest too. there is NO way I would expect to be in my brothers wedding.

I think it’s fine and not a big deal. I’m having my sister as my maid of honor, but she’s not doing/getting anything special and my best friend helped her plan the bachelorette party and gave a speech at my shower while my sister will give a speech at the wedding. Obviously my best friend would be my maid of honor if I didn’t have a sister. We aren’t too concerned about titles and rules, so I don’t think it would be much different if I had 2 maid of honors. Also, I’m having my fiance’s sister in the wedding and it’s been so great and has brought us so much closer. I would definitely do it!!

I think having both a matron and maid of honor is fine. As for his sister, talk to your FI as see if it’s really important to him.

DH didn’t have my brother in his party, so we had him do a reading. This way, he was involved, but not part of the wedding party.

@Missykate:  I’m having two Matrons of Honor, so I say do whatever you feel like doing!  I wished one could’ve been a Maid, but she beat me to the altar, so she’s going to be a Matron too.

 

I am having my fiance’s sister as a BM in our wedding.  We get along well but are not like best friends.  I think it’s a nice gesture to include your fiance’s sister if you can spare a spot, and like PP said, it may make you closer!

@Missykate:  It’s not strange! I’ve seen it before, and besides, it’s your wedding you can do what you want! I also don’t think you’re obliged to have anyone in your bridal party, particularly if you’re not close! 🙂

@Missykate:  I would still ask her. A bridesmaid can do as little or as much as you want. Just have her get a dress & show up.
