First of all, kudos for trying so hard. Secondly, unless you’re going to tie her up and stick her on a pole near the altar, I’m not sure how you’ll get her to be there for you :(. Maybe she’ll realize sometime soon that by being so immature, she’s losing a chance to be in your life Cry.

I think jo.less is right. It sounds like you are trying to be the bigger person and if she does not want to be there for you right now there is not much you can do. If you really feel like you need to address the issue I might sya having your mom or another neutral party bring it up with her might be an idea. At least then you can sleep a little easie knowing that she was asked to be a part of the day and it is on her for passing up that chance.

I’m sorry that she is choosing not to be involved.  Maybe she is jealous?  Maybe you could just give her a corsage to wear to include her?  That way, you have still included her, but she doesn’t have to do/not do anything.

I’m sorry you’re going through this with your sister and at this point, I doubt there’s much you can do– it seems like the ball is pretty much in her court now.

Maybe you can write her a letter/ send her a card or something. I doubt its going to change her mind or bridge the gap between you, but you could make it clear to her that you do love her, don’t really know what went wrong (if that’s true– you didn’t really say), and you want her to know that you would like her to be in your wedding if she wants to– that the offer will always be on the table.

That way, she can think about it and if she changes her mind, she’ll know that you haven’t changed yours. And if not, you know you did what you could and avoided a big scene.
