So my friend is getting married and asked her two sisters to be maids of honor. She said she considered me, but that doesn’t make me feel any better. One sister she is extremely close to. The other one not so much. They have invited me to family events and not the other sister. I’ve been told several times I’m “family”, but this and some other events have proven otherwise. I guess blood is thicker than water. I feel like she only wasted the second sister because they are sisters. People do what they want to do. If she reason wanted me to be a maid of honor she would have asked. We’re lining up by height so I’ll be next after the maids of honor, unless she has her soon to be sister-in-law. Before anyone goes there i know this day is not about me. My feelings were just hurt.

@Taylor14: It’s understandable that your feelings were hurt but look at the bright side, being a Maid/Matron of Honor also comeo with many responsibilities! Also, there was probably some Family pressure involved in your friend’s decision….

@Taylor14: I know that I’m three months late to the party but I’m really sorry that this is happening to you. I was really hurt when a close friend of mine didn’t ask me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. This is one of those situations where it’s really wasy for other people to tell you to get over yourself, but I think you have a right to be hurt. As long as you keep it to yourself and gracefully accept your Bridesmaid or Best Man position that is. I think it was a little onconsiderate of your friend to tell you that she considered you as Maid/Matron of Honor but passed you up (who wants to hear that?) but maybe she was trying to tell you that she considers you important enough to her to be a candidate? It does sound like there was a familial obligation here like a PP said. She probably felt that it would be rude to have one sister and not the other.
