@darkflame:  oh dear, it does sound like she was accidentally “led on”.  I think you need to talk to your sister about it – not in a way to embarrass her, but in a way where you tell her you noticed this happening, and hope she isn’t so frisky with her own date at the wedding! (is she brining a date??.  Make light of it – but I also wouldn’t bring up that your Maid/Matron of Honor has no romantic feelings for her.  Something like this: “My bach. was so fun right? I saw you were really getting into it, smacking MOH’s butt! haha! I am glad the wild part is out of the way, and now I can focus on the wedding where everyone will be more civilized and not acting as wild as we were!” Hopefully she’ll get THAT.

also your MOH’s bf will be there (right?) so that might help diffuse the situation between her and your sister.  Sometimes it takes seeing to believe – seeing your Maid/Matron of Honor dance/kiss/hold hands with her bf might make that message sink in.

I hope this works out, it seems like it has the potential to be very messy.

@darkflame:  Talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor, and give her your blessing to handle it as she sees fit. I think that is better than you talking to your sister, because you weren’t directly involved.

Your sister’s behaviour was inappropriate, regardless of whether she’s straight, gay or bi. Because it was inappropriate, Maid/Matron of Honor is within her rights to say something to her. Maid/Matron of Honor shouldn’t feel like she can’t say something for your sake. Let Maid/Matron of Honor know she can either say something before the wedding, or (if necessary) rudely tell your sister to back off if she touches her inappropriately at the wedding.
