@Stephefanie:  Pick the person you can stand the most and won’t hate if they can’t make every, single event.

That’s so difficult! I had the same problem. I picked my 4 closest girls and I would have LOVED for any of them to stand up next to me on my day. But you know what made the decision easier? I went to visit one of my friends shortly after getting engaged and she had already made a Pinterest board with tons of bachelorette party ideas and everything. She is very settled in life currently (already married, not making any job moves, not planning any babies in the foreseeable future) so I felt better asking her to be the Maid/Matron of Honor knowing she would have the time and enthusiasm to devote to it. And it’s been the best decision I’ve made through the whole wedding. She’s been so helpful and supportive. 


So who do you think has shown the most enthusiasm? How settled are each of the girls? And whose personality will be the most calming/supportive/helpful on your big day?

Good luck! And remember, you love these girls! I don’t think you can make a wrong choice. 🙂

From what you said…it sounds like you are closest to your future sister and law and trust that she would be in your life the longest. She was the only one you gave a reason that it might be weird, because your brothers are only groomsmen. But if you love her and youre close to her, plus shes your fiances sister, so shell always be an integral part of your relationship – i say go with her!
