- Wedding: October 2010
So kind of a complicated story, but here it goes.
I’m 23 (24 on Friday!!) and I have never met my father. I found out when I was 16ish that I had a brother and a sister (older) and started looking for them. Now, about 8 years later I have finally found them! I found my sister on Facebook and after some very tactfuly written questions I confirmed she was who I thought she was and she ended up putting all the facts together on her own and figured out that I was her half sister -she’s one smart cookie 🙂 Anyway, not only do I have a brother and a sister, but I have 3 brothers and a sister and a million nieces and nephews! Craziness! My family went from all of 8 people to like 30 in a day.
So even though I haven’t actually met her or my brothers yet (they live in NY and I live in GA) I feel very close to her already. We’ve been talking back and forth constantly for about a month now and I think I’ve decided that I want to ask her to be in my wedding. (They’re all coming down for the wedding!!)
So my issue is this: All of my BMs have ordered their dresses and they will be here in plenty of time to have alterations done and such. I really want to surprise my sister with this request to stand with us on our wedding day, but she obviously wouldn’t be wearing the same dress as the others.
Do I tactfully ask her to wear a royal blue dress to the wedding even though it won’t be the same color as the rest of the BMs?
Do I find out through a sister-in-law what size dress she wears and order one for her?
Or do I just scrap the idea all together and just be happy that the other half of my family will be there on my big day?
