I personally don’t have a sister, so I couldn’t tell you, but I’ve read stories similar to this one before and I KNOW there are people on here going through what you are. So I’m going to give this a bump for you. 🙂 Also, maybe search the boards for posts similar to yours. I know I’ve read several. Good luck!

I originally told my sister she wasn’t in my bridal party. I told her I didn’t want to put her in a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress bc I wanted her to stand out as the sister of the bride. She got really upset, asked if she was chopped liver (her words lol) and I said my bridal party wasn’t finalized, I was just throwing ideas. Finally, I asked her if she wanted to be in my bridal party and she said NO lol she said she didn’t want to wear a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress and that she is the older sister of the bride, already married and it would be weird (I don’t know where she comes up with these rules). Either way, I was totally fine with her decision. I don’t really get my feelings hurt that easily.

The point is, my sister will stand out because she is the sister of the bride. Perhaps you should discuss this with your MOH? Tell her that instead of her being the Maid/Matron of Honor and wearing a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, the two of you can go shopping for a special dress of HER choice and that she will be the “Sister of the Bride” on the program, she can even walk down the aisle with everyone, and then ask a friend to be a Maid/Matron of Honor instead.

Otherwise, it’s time you stand up to her. Tell her she’s a critical b1tch.

Or, ask her what happened – say you noticed sometime in May something changed and asked her if something happened to change the dynamic between you two?
