    I completely agree with what everyone before me has said, and voted in the poll, age does not matter when it comes to bridal parties. What is most important is that you have the people closest to your heart sharing in your joy on special day.

    I don’t think there should be an age limit! I think if you REALLY want the person to stand up with you and she wants to then GREAT! I doubt anyone will say anything.

    She is your sister!! They are never too old unless they don’t want to be part of it!

    My Maid/Matron of Honor is 46 years old and I never even thought about whether she is too old to be a Bridesmaid or Best Man or not. After all, she has been my best friend forever!

    Age shouldn’t be an issue, IMO!  Yay, I’m glad she agreed to be a bridesmaid!

    Age shouldn’t be an issue. I’m a 36 year old bride.

    Age shouldn’t be an issue.  What matter is WHO you want to be standing next to you when you get married.

    Aw that is sad that she doesn’t think she should be included because of her age…that is silly!  The BM’s are supposed to be the women in your life that you care about, and if the bride cares about her sister and wants her to be in the wedding party, then it shouldn’t matter her age!

    Hosh posh! Tell your sister…err um your’s friend’s sister 😉 that you are NEVER too old to celebrate a sister’s special day. I know she will anyway, but age is not an issue. Who cares! It is up to the bride and if she wants her there, then that is the way it is! 😉 (I am not seriously yelling, I’m being playful hehe)

    I personally would be so crushed if my sister was not in my wedding party. She is my MOH!

    My sister was 42 when I got married and I was proud to have her standing with me. No one thought it was odd or weird, it just meant the world to she and I and thats all that mattered.

    My best friend (also my MOH) is about 20 years older then I am. And I can’t imagine anyone else standing up there with me.

    I don’t think age matters at all.  All that matters is having the people closest to you supporting you on your big day.  I would want my sister standing beside me, no matter what her age was.
