I am having my brother’s wife do a reading in the ceremony. When they got engaged, I told her that in my mind, she is a sister, and she said she felt the same way. Should I lister her as
Jane Doe, sister-in-law of the bride
Jane Doe, sister of the bride
I don’t think she will be offended wither way. I feel that calling her a sister would be honoring her, but others might think it odd or think she is my biological sister (her married last name is my maiden name).

i would go with sister-in-law to avoid confusion!
as an aside, i definitely thought this was a smack down type post like your sister and your SIL were squaring off/fighting… lol.

I think for program sake – leave it as sister in law. It might confuse people otherwise. It sounds like she knows how you feel and it’s great that you gained such a close relationship through your brother’s marriage.

I was definitely expecting some drama, and I also misread it the same way ejs4y8 did at first. 😉 I think SIL is fine. She knows how you feel about her and the point of describing people that way in the program is to explain to guests who everyone is, so that would be most clear.

I think you should put sister-in-law. Your family will think you made a typo, and everyone else that doesn’t know will think she is your sister.
