@Nona99:  I think you did the right thing by offering to be just a bridesmaid or not in the bridal party if that would cause less drama. But the bride refused and so I think the only thing you can do is be the best Maid/Matron of Honor you can.

@Nona99:  I don’t think there is much else you can do! You have offered to step down already (very gracious of you, in my opinion). Just be there for your friend. Support her decisions, listen to her, and do what you feel is right to make it a good celebration for her.

Hmm.. this is tough! But I think her sister is being a BRAT! Its your friends wedding and you should do whatever she says or insists. She obviously wants you to be a Maid/Matron of Honor so I would just be supportive with her and just roll with it … Maybe trying to call her sister and work things out would be beneficial and squash the drama immediatly so this wedding process is fun for everyone! Just be a good friend, like you seem you are already being! Goodluck and don’t get sucked into the drama of her sister!!!

I think the thing for you to do is nothing. This is a problem between the bride and her sister.

You have already been very gracious in offering to step down to a Bridesmaid or Best Man role, or out of the bridal party altogether. You have done what you can do.

Her ingrate sister is being incredibly self-centred and childish.

Is there any chance the older sister is married? If so, she would be a matron of honor and you would be the maid of honor.
