Both of my sister-in-laws (SILs) are almost 40 (I am 27). They have voiced repeatly that they do NOT need to be in the wedding. I was in both of their weddings. It is important to me that my brothers are in the wedding, so they are groomsmen.
My question is how can I include my SILs?

If you are having a religious ceremony, you can have them do readings. You can also get them involved with planning some of your events like the bridal shower or the bachelorette party.
It really is great to hear that you are including your SILs in the wedding!

Great ideas, RhoddyBride!
Since we are Jewish, there arent readings (that I know of). Does anyone know if there can be readings in a Jewish ceremony? If so, any suggestions?

I’m not sure (i’m not Jewish) but if you can squeeze readings in, that’d be wonderful. They don’t have to be long but it’d be a nice honor.

Here are some things that my SIL did for me at the wedding without being IN the wedding:
Lit the pew candles at the beginning of the ceremony
Did a reading at the ceremony
Acted as a greeter for our guests as they arrived for our cocktail hour (Our club was huge – 5 stories- and she directed them to the coat check, gift table, sign in table and cocktails/hors d’ oeuvres)
Other than these things – I just wanted her to enjoy her evening!
