So for the bachelorette, my bridesmaids as well as a few close girlfriends that I’ve had over the years will be attending. I have two sisters and they are both bridesmaids. Question is, my Fiance has a younger sister, and I’m wondering if I should extend an invite to her? All my girls are in their mid twenties and she is 18, although I don’t know her too well. Wondering what some of you did with your future SIL?

@Coopsie: I don’t have a FSIL/SIL, but in your case, I would invite her. At 18 she would still be old enough for any adult establishments you might choose to go to, and I’m sure it would go a long way in the family dynamic department if she were included.

@Coopsie: My SIL was a bridesmaid. So, she was included in the planning emails that my Maid/Matron of Honor and other bridesmads were sending around about picking dates and deciding what to do, but she never actually answered them… and then the selected date/activity was inconvenient to her so she didn’t come.
But I think it’s nice to extend an invite. Especially if 18 is legal age to join any festivities you might plan. It’s 19 in our province, but we just did a brunch, wine tour, mini golf and dinner and home for a sleepover/drinks, so even if I’d had someone younger they would have been able to join for all the festivities.

Thank you ladies! Yes we’re not doing a super wild bachelorette party, so she would be able to enjoy all the activities. I appreciate the advice!
