I wouldn’t talk to her alone. Maybe sit down with your mom and her, and talk to her about your vision for your wedding. Make it seem like you’re doing her a favour by not making her the Maid/Matron of Honor, that there’s so much to do and you know she’ll be too busy to help you as much as you’ll need her to. Try to make it seem like you’ve got her best interest in mind by helping her out and just making her a bridesmaid.

Put a positive spin on the entire thing, I would not go at this with the attitude of, You aren’t going to be the Maid/Matron of Honor only a Bridesmaid or Best Man, I would call and say, ” I love you so much!  It would mean the world to me if you would stand up as a Bridesmaid or Best Man with me!”  It’s all about attitude on this one, and of course you want yor bestie to be your Maid/Matron of Honor, who wouldn’t?  Just because your sister isn’t does not mean she can’t be an integral part of your wedding, your shower or your bachelorette, she can still give a speech if she wants to, as long as she understands your Maid/Matron of Honor might want to as well….I don’t think this is a bad thing at all….and if your sister turns it into one, be prepared to stick to your guns and your boundaries about the behavior you demand from her.
