    Is your sister a bridesmaid at all? If she is then I think you made the right decision in making your FI’s sister the MOH. The only way I could see this as a screw-up is if you didn’t include your own sister at all.

    But how does your sister feel about this? I think it would bother me if i offended my sister, especially since you daid you have gotten close the past few years. But if she was ok with it i wouldnt worry about it.

    @Alli259: Oops, misread that as your FI’s sister’s entire family. 🙂 You are totally in the right with your decision. Is someone upset over it or are you just rethinking?

    i think you are ok in this decision. My sister was my MOH but when my sister got married i was 13 and she was 22 – she also made her husbands sister her MOH – i wasnt offended (i think it was an excuse since the MOH doesnt nessarily have to be the witness but she told me the MOH has to be 18 to sign the marriage license) which now i call BS on but at the time i was like ok that makes sense and it didnt hurt my feelings – she still made me a bridesmaid and even told me after the fact that she should have picked me haha (she may have just been saying that ) but it made me feel good either way. i really wasnt offended at all that she didnt pick me then, or now- i was so young and it was the first wedding i ever attended so i had no idea about the ins and outs of the wedding world.

    plus we werent friends then, we had nothing in common at all there was a 9 year age diffence between us. We became much better friends later on so now, if she were to get remarried and didnt ask i would have her head! haha

    My MOH is my friend and not my sister, you dont have to use your sister if you have someone else you are closer to.

    You sister will probably see it as a slap in the face. Y’all are blood-related, regardless of the age difference. Now, when I first read it I didn’t see anything wrong with it… until you said that his sister is the MOH. It just seems like that turns everything around, IMO. I think ultimately you made the right decsion for you. But if I was in this situation, I would either pick my sister or a friend… not his sister.
