FI’s Brother’s wife???? So he’s your FI’S sister in law? She’s not yours….I’d say it isn’t necessary. I was thinking it was your FI’s sister you were talking about….you’re kinda stretching out along the family lines for someone as honorable as a Maid/Matron of Honor I think.

You definitely don’t need to ask her to be in the wedding party. Plus, she’s going to have JUST HAD A BABY. I imagine standing around in heels for an hour isn’t exactly going to be her idea of fun a month or two post-partum. Not to mention, if the new baby is going to be at the wedding, she will probably need to sit with him/her anyway (and you can always use that as your excuse if it ever comes up).

Have an update to this thread. Our flower girl is my fiances niece – the daughter of my fiances sister in law that I was concerned about including in the wedding. She just told me that she plans to walk her daughter, the flower girl, down the aisle b/c she’s convinced she can’t do it on her own (she’ll be 2 1/2 at the time of the wedding). Although I’d gotten comfortable with the idea of not including her in the wedding – I’m now uncomfortable at the idea of her deciding to walk down the aisle with her daughter even though she is not part of the wedding party. I kind of feel like it would make more sense for her to then be in the bridal party and in a dress that matches everyone else, rather than in regular clothing and walking down the aisle. My other thought is to just not have a flower girl, but that would disappoint my fiances parents. Any thoughts?
