I would just sit and talk with your two sisters. I know how frustrating it can be to not always get along with your sisters. I would just let them know how you want things. If they are not willing to cooperate, then you can go and ask someone else to be your bridesmaid. You should not have to deal with the stress of your sisters.

You could just make them bridesmaids. I’d just pick a maid of honor that can keep them in line. That way if they start acting up or stressing you out you can rely on her to diffuse the situation before it gets out of hand. Good luck! Honesty is best though so if you’re not picking them I’d definitely sit down and tell them why.

I knew I wanted my sister to be in my wedding from the day I got engaged. My sister is my twin! and I made her my MOH! My sister is a tomboy and not a dress type of girl, so I didn’t want her to buy a NEW dress just for my wedding. I made her try on the dress she wore when she and I both were in a friends wedding a few years ago and guess what? IT FIT HER STILL!! I was so estatic! That’s how I decided on colors too!

I wouldn’t feel obligated to include them. Personal attendants, readers, etc maybe if at all. I would be upset to not be included but at the end of the day you need to be able to trust those standing up there with you and helping you along the way.

I’ve had issues with my 2 future sister in laws that I asked to stand up because I never thought they wouldn’t be supportive. In fact, they were telling me what I need to do b/c that’s how their family did it and it became a fight. My advice: pick carefully and not out of obligation.
