ecrowe1218:  If you are mature enough to have two daughters and be planning a wedding, you are mature enough to tell your Mom that you have already reserved a role for these women- wedding guest. Not everyone attending your wedding needs another role.

first i hope you/someone else explains to your mom how bridal parties work bc she’s on a different page hahaha. ideas for the aunts maybe give them an i love you/thank you shout out on the program and give them a special corsage to wear that matches the bridesmaid and reserve visible seats for them in the front?

hopefully your fam catches on to what bridal parties actually are! good luck!

 

**ETA: if YOU *want* to give them a special role. otherwise it’s perfectly fine to just move forward w the wedding party you want, no extra action needed.

ecrowe1218:  I think it’s ridiculous for your mom to want her and her sisters to be in the bridal party. She needs to step back and also tell her sisters what their roles are which is to attend and be happy and party their socks off. That’s it!

What the heck? There’s no reason your aunts hvae to have bridal party roles to be involved. They can offer to throw you a shower, offer to help assemble invites or other decor, offer to coordinate the day of, etc… They don’t need to be forced on you.
