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.
