All of them or none of them.  Asking only one will cause hurt feelings.  Find another way to include your favorite stepsis in your day.

@Preludeangel:  maybe you can include your stepsister in another way… like a witness in the registry? I have 3 sisters… and I’m only asking one of them to be Maid/Matron of Honor in the bridal party and my 2 best friends… I’ll probably have to think up of other stuff my other 2 sisters to be involved….

Stepsister is a closer relation than stepsister-in-law. And presumably SS has been in your life much longer. I don’t see a problem with having SS only. The fact that stepsister and SSIL are best friends is irrelevant, they’re not joined at the hip.

I don’t understand why step SIL has to be in the bridal party just because she is good friends with your stepsister. It isn’t your stepsister’s wedding, it’s yours! And if you’re not close to step SIL, why would she be hurt that she’s not in your wedding? I mean, your other bridesmaids have good friends who are not in your bridal party right?

Maybe you can include her in another way? Maybe she can do a reading?
