The biggest thing I learned going through the process of having bridesmaids is that you absolutely cannot make someone act the way you want or the way you expect.  All you can do is be thankful for whatever her level of involvement is and find the people you actually can rely on and ask for their help.  It sound like your sister is as involved as she can be/wants to be.  I’m sure she is busy with her kids and sometimes after all the stress and excitement of wedding panning is over, you can forget what a crazy time it can be.  She might not even realize how much support you need right now. I wouldn’t press her for more than she can give, and avoid further stress for yourself.  Hopefully some of your bridesmaids or family can be more enthusiastic? Stay calm and remember to have fun with all of this stuff!

With sisters it can be tough because they have to step out of their sister role and be a Maid/Matron of Honor. I have two sisters as my MOH’s and the one has done nothing but make every single detail of the wedding as stressful and hard on me as she possibly can. My other sister (who I am not as close with) is being super supportive and excited about everything, even though she is busy with two little ones of her own.

All you can do is dismiss her behavior from your mind and focus on things that make you happy. Don’t go to her with things you need a Maid/Matron of Honor to do, go to another one of your bridesmaids if you need support especially. It’s kind of sad because she has the title but is not earning it, but at the end of the day whatever!!
