    I think there are a lot of things you HAVE to do for your wedding.  However, you get to choose who you want to have standing next to you. Those girls should be chosen because they are dear to you. This is not a “have to” situation. Protect your mood that day and ask your Fiance to stand up for you.

    If neither you and your Fiance really like his sister then don’t let her be part of your bridal party. You’ll resent every minute of it. Find another task or two for her to do if she wants to be involved. Just explain that you two decided your wedding parties some time ago and you want to keep it small and even.

    It sounds like you are not close and that you dont really even like her so do not make her a bridesmaid, you will only be frustrated through out the process.  I would maybe ask her to do a reading during the ceremony (if your religion allows it?) Or if your Fiance wants to make her a “grooms Woman” she could stand on his side.  Honestly, if I was five months pregnant there is no way I would want to be a bridesmaid.. it sounds like the family is going to have an issue no matter what you choose…

    I would put my foot down and say no and keep saying no because it sounds like she will give you nothing but a headache. It sounds like these people will be hard to deal with no matter what you do, keep her out of the bridal party so that you can at least find some peace there. Since neither you nor your Fiance think she should be, I would leave her outof it. I might make my Fiance deal with it since it is his family.

    My Future Sister-In-Law is not in my bridal party. I like her well enough, so I think that she should be, because I know that she really wants to be a bridesmaid. But my Fiance felt very strongly that his sister should not be in the bridal party. He informed me that when it comes to his sister, his wedding will be about him and she will do NOTHING except for attend as a guest and that is all. It is his sister, so I let it go. Don’t let anyone ramrod your wedding, especially someone who will be miserable to you.
