You have to want the people that are up there wiht you to be there. I think if you want her then you should do it, but dont do it just because you feel obligated bc your Fiance asked your bros.

@J_Bal: I agree with organizedbride!  Only ask someone if you REALLY want them in your wedding party, not just out of obligation.  Its your decision who to ask and you shouldn’t feel pressured because your FH asked your brothers.  If you feel comfortable with your Future Sister-In-Law and you want here up there then ask her.  If you’re not comfortable with that and want to give her another role, maybe she can escort grandparents down the aisle?

You certainly aren’t expected to. My Fiance has a sister and I didn’t ask her to be in the wedding at all.

I’m all about having family up there. Friends come and go, but family is forever! Even if you don’t like them 🙂

My Fiance and I actually discussed our bridal party options together. Of course, I picked mine and he picked his but there were a few exceptions. Such as…

I wanted to have a good friend besides me but the best man is my friends ex Boyfriend or Best Friend (total drama-fest not going into it) That wouldn’t make for a civil situation. So we decided together it wasn’t a good idea to have her in the wedding partyand just decided to keep the best man as is.

Second… it was really important to Fiance to have his sisters in the wedding and he voiced that. He didn’t put pressure on me… I just asked him if it was something he really wanted. I’m not toooo traditional but I don’t like the idea of them standing by his side in bridesmaid dresses. So they are standing by my side. I am close to my FSIL’s though so it just feels right. We call each other sista’s!

But you are not obligated to have anyone stand by your side. If you think it’s important to your Fiance to have his sis in both of your wedding, then go for it.
