@ericamariejudge:  I have 4 sisters and I didn’t ask any of them to be in my bridal party- and I wasn’t in any of theirs.

If I asked one, I would have had to ask them all, and there would have been no room for my close friends.

@dulcevida:  I totally agree with this. I’d give her the chance to surprise you. Family is family, and who knows, sharing all of your wedding stuff could bring you two closer.

@ericamariejudge:  I don’t think you should. If you feel awkward and fake including her, then I would interpret that as your instincts telling you ‘no’.

If she’s not that close with you, she won’t be devastated over it anyway.

If your wedding is August 15th of 2015, do you need to ask now? Why not just wait awhile. See how your relationship grows or changes (for better or worse- not meant to be a pun) in the next months. The same goes for your closest girl friends. Relationships evolve and 6 months from your wedding you and your sister might be best friends. Or you might drift away from one of the girls you find closest with now (sorry that sounds negative), or you might gain a new friend who you end up being closer to than any of your current friends. You have awhile, why make decisions now? Just enjoy being engaged!

If she doesn’t make you happy, do not include her. It’s all about who makes YOU feel special on your big day.. If she doesn’t make you feel special and great, don’t include her.
