Could they do a reading? Or just have them be seated by an usher and give them a corsage or something?  I am having a small wedding a party as well and FI’s 2 sisters will be bridesmaids along with 2 of my friends, and that’s it.

If they have any talents, use them (art, music, computer graphics etc).  You could have any of them do a reading, candle lighting, or other type of ceremony.  For example, we had a hand fasting ceremony, and had our lone groomsman and bridesmaid participate in that since the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man get to do everything else!  How about acting as the ushers to the ceremony?  Or handing out programs.  There are so many things you could have them do!

I’m in the same position! He’s having his 2 brothers & best friend as groomsmen. And I’m having my 2 friends and cousin.

But what to do with the little sibs that aren’t so little anymore (my bro is 18, his sisters are 14 and 11)…. 

I think we’ve finally come up with something though – I’m having my bro walk me down the aisle and I think we’ll have his 2 sisters each carry a ring down. And we’ll probably have them read something and I may con my bro into playing guitar.

If you are having programs, they could pass those out, or they could do guestbook, gift table, cut the cake etc.

My future SIL is going to do a reading.

It would be great if they were musical, but if not I would have them do readings!

My SO also has 3 sisters. The oldest one is a Bridesmaid or Best Man, and the other two are singing/playing a song as we walk in. Lucky for me, they’re super talented girls!

Readings work – you could always have them wear a color hue of the color of the bridesmaids too.  Thanking them in the program is always good too – makes it “official” for them to see.

They could pass out programs or read something during the ceremony? If you’re getting married in a church, maybe they can light the candles

My Fiance has three siblings not in the wedding party too.  The reliable little sister is an usher.  The flighty older sister is the guestbook attendant (possibly DJ?).  The OCD little brother is in charge of the gift table (he’d want to re-arrange it anyway.)

Ushers, nothing requires ushers to be male.

Definitely give them corsages that match your/the maids bouquets…being sister-of-the-groom is still VIP. One of my FI’s sisters is not in the wedding because she is electing not to attend the ceremony (looooooonng story) but we got her a corsage and she’ll be in pictures. Also it’s good policy to act very interested in what Future Sister-In-Law wears because she’ll be in pictures.

@kala_way:I agree!

 

Unfortunately, I’m not as nice/considerate of this as you!  FI’s stepsister/family won’t be doing anything, but his step-brother’s daughter is our flower girl.  my step-sister’s son (my nephew) will be ring bearer, my two brothers will be ushers, and my step-brother is kinda left out of the loop. 

 

If there’s nothing to do, there’s nothing to do.  You can’t help it!
