I was just wondering if anyone had ever asked a sibling to be a part of their wedding and been turned down? My Fiance and I asked my sister to do a reading in our wedding (we knew she didn’t want to be a bridesmaid) and she turned us down. She said she’s too afraid of public speaking and it would cause her to have a panic attack. I’m trying to understand and not be hurt by it, but it’s just part of a trend where my family seems to act like my wedding is just a big imposition on all of them. I’m a 44 year old first time bride, and I almost feel like they think I’m being ridiculous for having a wedding at all at my age. Any thoughts?
