    BlondieBee28:  I picked your future SIL to stand beside you, then your Maid of Honor sits beside you at reception and signs the certificate. My reasons: 

    Your SIL gets the ‘honor’ of standing beside you at the ceremony, and will be in the pictures that way – surely she can’t expect to do it ALL since she knows you also have a MaidOH, so hopefully she won’t be offended. 

    Since you and SIL aren’t as close anymore, maybe you’d have more fun/be less stressful for you to sit by your Maid at the reception, and she gets the honor of signing the certificate. You would have less direct interaction with your SIL this way . . . (i.e. you won’t have to talk to SIL at all at the ceremony, then you can have fun with your Maid of Honor at the reception, when you will have plenty to talk about, while still being able to interact with SIL but in a less direct way)

    Nothing really to add, except that I agree with emstar168:  and voted the same way : ) Good luck!
