I don’t think you really need to explain it to them, you picked your sisters and that’s totally reasonable.

Unless you were adamant to your friends that you would not be having ANY bridesmaids and then ended up making your sisters bridesmaids, I don’t see how they’d take issue with this.

If you really want an excuse of sorts, just say you’re humoring your mom, because apparently you are. Everyone understands that now and then.

Sisters are a default bridesmaids option. Nothing to explain.

There is nothing to explain.  You picked your sisters as attendants.  End of story.

Unless you told these particular friends before that they would be bridesmaids I don’t think you need to explain anything. These are your sisters most brides who have at least a decent relationship with their sisters usually have their sisters as bridesmaids. It would be different if you were choosing other friends over them.
