Here’s the situation. My only sister is way older than I am. Ever since we were younger we never really hung out cause when I was a kid, she was teenager, when I was a teenager, she was grown up already. She’s married long time ago and now my nephew is already in high school. I am not super close with her (cause I think because of the age different) but I talk to her and see her frequently. Our parents live out of state since 10 years ago, she she’s been my only family for the past 10 years.
So. I didn’t ask her to be my bridesmaid or Maid/Matron of Honor. Why? Well, to me, she’s more like a mother than a sister. I know it sounds weird, but literally she kinda replaced my mom while we both live in the same state. And as much as I love her, I feel like asking my mom to be my bridesmaid/MOH. I don’t think she mind at all that I didn’t ask her to be my bridesmaid, but I am wondering if it will be really weird? Any of you has/had the same experience where you has sister, but with one or another reason didn’t ask your sister to be your bridesmaid?

My sister is only 2 years older than me and I won’t be asking her to be one of my bridesmaids. Simply just because we don’t get along. Like, at all lol.
Its your choice, pick whoever you feel the most comfortable with. If you feel odd asking your older sister and youve already said she wouldnt mind, then I wouldnt worry about it. Some people just have different relationships with their siblings and you shouldnt feel like you “have” to include anyone in your bridal party just because you’re related.

If you guys have a good relationship try to involve her in as much of the wedding planning as you can like letting her go dress shopping with you helping you pick a venue stuff like that

I wouldn’t worry about it if she is fine with it. If she is a lot older than the rest of the bridesmaid, she might be uncomfortable or at least, I would. I second mrsjjohnson2b idea and ask her to go dress shopping with you and pick out venues.
