My oldest sister lives in Michigan and we rarely see each other. 🙁 She is finally coming down in July and I have been planning on asking her to be my Bridesmaid or Best Man. I had mentioned it to my mom and she told me not to, she said my sister wouldn’t be comfortable doing it at all. My mom thinks it’s her age that will bother her. She is 42 while I am 26, but I don’t care, she is still my sister regardless of her age and me getting married is a big deal and I would love her to be beside me. I don’t fully believe my mom because she’s pretty negative and I think it could be partly jealousy. So I plan on talking to my sister in person and asking her anyway, if she doesn’t want to fine, but at least I asked. I do plan on also asking my niece (her daughter) who is 14. I know she’ll be excited to do it and I plan on getting her a Bridesmaid or Best Man shirt as a gift for her to open and that’s how I’ll ask her. I’m stuck at what to get my sister though, I don’t want to get something Bridesmaid or Best Man and then her say no. Fiance suggested a travel mug that says Bridesmaid or Best Man and if my sister says no then it can be given to my niece but my niece is 14 and I don’t know if she needs a travel mug. Any ideas? Thanks!
