It sounds like your sister should be the one says that she could do it or not..

I’m a pretty firm believer that bridal party roles should be determined by relationships and not by anything else (ie how ‘available to help’ they are or how much money they have) and it sounds like you made your decision based on that too.

If your sister chooses to decline that’s her choice, but I see no reason for her to not have the option! Stick with your gut bee, this is between you and your sister!

Your mom needs to butt out.  Your sister can make that choice on her own.  For all your mom knows maybe having a fun distraction of being in a wedding is just what your sister needs.  She can’t assume anything at this point.  If your sister realizes that she can’t afford being maid of honor or doesn’t have time that is a decision she can make on her own.

Let your sister decide this for herself, and make sure she knows that if she does accept, she’ll have plenty of support when it comes to planning things but that really all you need is for her to stand up there with you. I think your mom has you and your sister’s best interests at heart, but talk to your sister and get her input too.

I agree with everyone else. This is your sister’s choice, not your mom’s. She might be offended forever if you house someone else over her! You can give her the option to say no, but i definitely think you should stick with your original plan!
