I have 5 close Best fiends 1 sister 2 half-sisters that are over 35 and married with 3 kids a piece and my fiance has two sister. So I came do to the decision that My Maid/Matron of Honor would be my biological sister and my 5 best friends and my fiances bioilogical sisters would be the bridesmaid one of those being a jounior bridesmaid that will help bring our daughter down as the flower girl because she will be to young to do it on her own.
My question is one of my two older half sisters told my mom that she understood that I had good friends that would have more fun being the bridesmaids since they are younger not married, etc. but I am still afriad I will hurt my older half sisters feelings that I put my fiances sisters in it and not them. So I want to give them an important job so that they know I want them apart of my special day.
What should I do?

I think that you should just talk to your half-sisters and see how they really feel. I’m sure that they really do understand the situation, and since they’re married, they probably know how stressful it is to keep everyone happy. Can they do readings at the ceremony?

There are plenty of important places you could have them at your wedding.
If you’re doing any readings or songs during your ceremony, you could ask them to do so. If not, you can make up a unique part of your ceremony in include them. We did a tea ceremony instead of a unity candle and had a friend prepare the tea.
It worked out nicely that I have one brother would I asked to walk my mom down the aisle during the seating of the parents.
In your case, perhaps your two older half sisters could both escort your mom down the aisle.
Additionally, a lot of people think that the guest book attendant position is kind of crappy to give to someone, but in our case it was particularly special. A lot of people from my culture give red envelopes filled with money as a gift as opposed to the traditional western gift. It was her job to keep track of each gift, safeguard it during the wedding, and thank them as a representative of both our families. She was particularly touched to be given that honor.

Yeah, that is an idea I was also thinking that since I am thinking about having the bridesmaids in long dresses that I could see if they wanted to wear the same colors just as a short dresses.
I also didn’t know if the people that stand out in front of the church and hand out programs are poeple that you assign. I was thinking maybe we could do that and then have them escorted to their seats before the bridesmaids and groomsmen…
