I think it’s a good idea, you’ll have lots of prewedding activities which will get you a chance to get closer.

My hubby doesn’t have a sister, but I was in my brother’s wedding. She was actually my friend first and met my brother through me, so it made sense that I would be in it. It was a lot of fun to be in their wedding, and meant a lot to me that she asked.

My fiance’s little sister will be my bridesmaid…its good:) I’m not asking her to do much though, because she’s only 14! I find her really nice to talk to and a supportive person, so I can’t imagine my day without her! 🙂

My FI’s sister is one of my bridesmaids and my little brother is one of his groomsmen. I think it’s a nice gesture to include them and, to me, it sets a nice family-oriented tone. You’re marrying into the family as well, so you might as well have them surrounding you!

I agree, I think you should definitely do this, you will be family after all, and no better to have in your bridal party than family 🙂  I think she would really appreciate it too and it will bring you all closer.

I had my husband’s sister as a bridesmaid.  I didn’t know her that well before we got engaged and it was a good chance to get to know her. 

I wrote in her thankyou card that having her be a bridesmaid is a great way to start off a lifetime of being a part of eachother’s big moments.  I think it’s just a good way to show that you’ll come together as a family. 

Barring any major reason NOT to invite a Future Sister-In-Law, I say go for it.

If you want her to, I think that’s awesome, but if you see it more as a “nice thing to do” or an obligation, why not just encourage your Fiance to have her as a groomsmaid or some such?
