I wouldn’t worry about it! You chose to only have a maid of honor and a bestman so it’s not like you chose five bridesmaids and left her out. If you want her to feel special, ask her to do a reading or have her do a special toast at the reception. Just find a way to show that she is important to both of you and you don’t need her to walk down the aisle.

Honestly, if I was her and everyone else was processing, I’d feel left out! Maybe she could escort the grandmas or something?

What about having her and her bf come in somewhere with the rest of the family, like before the grandparents, or between grandparents and parents? That seems very logical and natural to me. Or after the parents since then it will be oldest family to youngest family, then the wedding party. If she is the only other family member, it would seem very hurtful to not have her walk in with the rest of her family when it would be so easy to include her.

@jennicole01:  This is a FANTASTIC idea. You could also have her serve as an usher and have her walk down the aisle with her boyfriend as the wedding first begins.

We aren’t having FI’s sister walk down the aisle. We are only doing parents/grandparents and bridal party. I will, however, have a corsage for her.

My DH’s sister (with her family) and brother did not process, but I didn’t have grandparents process either. They did have reserved seating up front though.

An option would be to have her follow her parents down the aisle? My Darling Husband walked his mom down the aisle, and his dad followed behind – if you processed like this then sister could walk with dad behind your fiance/MIL? (I would have bf already seated).
