That’s a tough one.  Do you have anyone else in mind that you would want to co-MOH?  Someone who you know would be there for you?

If you really want your sister in the wedding, you can always try appointing someone else as a co-MOH who you know will be more on top of things and help you with the planning. Hopefully your sister will come around, but she may not and it’s best to nip that in the bud now vs. fuming for months over her lack of effort.

@Beanpod10: I opted for a Maid/Matron of Honor and a Matron of Honor….that way all the work wouldn’t fall on one person and if one of them flaked out there would be a back-up person to call.

Yikes that’s tough… I’m really sorry!! 

I would second the co-MOH idea if you feel it would be too much to drop her as a Maid/Matron of Honor altogether.  Do any of your other bridesmaids see the issue and would be willing to help you out?  To me, if my friend was going through this and I was a bridesmaid, I wouldn’t be so concerned about having the title Maid/Matron of Honor, and would be totally willing to help her out, so maybe one of your other BM’s would do the same?

Maid/Matron of Honor and Matron of Honor sounds like a good plan.  Your sister may only get her dress and show up for your wedding.  Pick someone as your Matron of Honor/Co-MOH who is really responsible and doesn’t mind picking up the slack (doing the big jobs, and is excited to help you with things).
