I think this is a great opportunity to improve your relationship with your SIL and really turn over a new leaf!  I was in a similar position before my wedding–I had a friend that really stepped up and did a TON for me and my wedding, even though she wasn’t in the bridal party.  So I made a point of thanking her in the program, I publicly gave her a gift at the rehearsal dinner and made a little speech about how grateful we were for everything she did, and I got her the same corsage that the moms wore as a sign of honor.  I also asked her to be with me while I was getting ready.  I didn’t ask her to be part of the wedding party because she wouldn’t have been able to get a dress in time, and I also didn’t want to ask her to incur any expenses, but I did make sure that she felt special at the rehearsal and on the day.  I would have probably asked her to do a reading if we hadn’t already asked my husband’s sisters (who were not in the bridal party either), and we thought two readings was plenty.  If you have room to add a reading, that would be great also, but I think you should definitely do a few other things to let her know how much you appreciate her help.  I would also make a point of thanking her and your hostess at the bridal shower.  Good luck!
