You need someone in your corner! Someone to help you and encourage you, not drag you down or make horrible comments about fiance. Are the costs of the bridal activities and the dress expensive? I would go outline everything and ask your fiances sister if she is up to being a Maid/Matron of Honor and if she can afford it. She sounds like the most supportive one of the bunch. Your other cousins sound like a good pick, but that might cause trouble with your family like you mentioned. Don’t pick that cousin that is stirring all the drama, she will only cause more unless she has a serious attitude adjustment.

Is it necessary to have a MOH?  It sounds like the easiest option would be to just have 4 bridesmaids, and not have a Maid/Matron of Honor at all.  As you say, it seems like choosing anyone is going to create drama!

@Spydchic99:  If its about the dresses, it sounds like you should make the sister Maid/Matron of Honor.  She has been the most supportive, it means you don’t have to split up the cousins, and she’s the one who hasn’t bought the blue dress yet.

@Spydchic99:  Could you just help out your bestfriend with the cost of her dress so that she can remain your MOH?  I wouldn’t ask your cousin based on what you’ve told us about her so far.  Asking your fiance’s sister would probably be a recipe for drama and if she doesn’t know you super well it could be disappointing for you on your big day to not feel super connected to your Maid/Matron of Honor.  I’d try to come up with a way to keep your best friend as your Maid/Matron of Honor.
