I had a dilemma a while ago about not asking my FSIL’s to be bridesmaids. Thanks to my FH and you helppful ladies, I was glad I made the decision to ask my closest friends instead, and FH has asked his sisters to stand up with him on the big day.
This poses a new question, however. What should they wear? I’m thinking they could just wear the same dress as my maids but a different color. We’re trying to avoid black, if possible.
Has anyone else done this? How did it work out/look?

I think it would look fine, especially because it would make you all happy! I was going to suggest they actually wear the same color as the guys so they kind of match them. Is there a reason you don’t want to do black?

my fiance’s sister wil be standing with the groomsmen. She will be a junior bridesmaid on his side. She is wearing the same dress as my bridesmaids but in black (matching the groomsmen). If you are avoiding black, try finding something that would match the guys but perhaps have an element that matches the girls dresses (like a sash).

I think wearing the bridesmaid dress is a wonderful idea, in either the same color or a different color.It’ll be clear that they’re in the wedding party and which side they stand on.
I’ll be standing with my brother, but one of his colors is black, so I guess that doesn’t help.
