I would personally choose all or none. Thats what I did, I have 2 of FI’s sisters as bm’s and two friends in my wedding party.

I’d do all or none too. Why not head off potential headaches and hurt feelings?

Unless you are obviously closer to one of them, you should ask all or none. Don’t do it just a for the token gesture (aka bridging the families). They’ll understand you have other close friends. Just include them in all your wedding events (shower, rehersal, etc)

I would do all or none even if you are obviously closer to one of them. Darling Husband has 3 sisters – a twin (who lived with us for a little while and Im very close to) and 2 older sisters who are 7 and 8 years older than I am. I initially only asked his twin sister because I wanted to have a small bridal party. At first it seemed fine but then my Mother-In-Law went crazy that his other 2 sisters were not asked. I dont know whether or not his sisters were offended but my Mother-In-Law was offended for them. It was not a good situation. Avoid drama!!

All or none. 

@PitBulLover: Wow, I would have thought the same thing, that since they were older, they wouldn’t have been offended.  Yikes!

All or none… I have 3 brothers and Darling Husband has 2 sisters. We chose to do none… it still caused headaches because his older sister felt it was her “right” to be a bridesmaid. You’ll get a headache either way, but minimize it where you can.

I would have to say all or none! I wanted to ask my Fiance sister-in-law not even his sister but his other sister-in-law freaked! So now neither of them are in my wedding party lol
