    @beeintraining:  I think the BFF should be the one picked. Seems like your wedding party would be more enjoyable, and he would be more supportive.

    Maybe tell FI parents that you have chosen BFF, but would like to include the sister in another way?

    @beeintraining:  I definitely think the BFF/Brother from another mother should be best man! It only makes sense.
    I laughed so hard though “Drink Heavily. Buy Bunny. Make It Best Man. They can’t argue with fluffy.”
    I may consider bunny’s for my bridal party! Can’t argue with fluffy.

    Would he consider making Sister 2 a “groomswoman” as opposed to “best woman”? This way, BFF still gets to be best man and Sister 2 doesn’t start WWIII. I’m firmly of the belief that for your wedding, you need to put a firm foot down. Family will try to wiggle all types of things out of you, pressure you into something you don’t want to do, etc. At the end of the day, do not let their pressure deter you and your FI from having the best man you both want. Include the sister in another way, either as a groomswoman or consider having her do a reading or something. 

    I’m in a tricky situation myself. I have two sisters, but am only close with one. When I think about my wedding party, I want my oldest sister to be matron of honor, but I want my best friend to be maid of honor, meaning I would be excluding my sister. If I was just picking one maid of honor, it wouldn’t be a problem, but since I am planning on choosing two and STILL not choosing her, I know it’s going to cause some friction, however, I’m remaining firm!

    Good luck. So sorry you are dealing with this :/
