Good Afternoon everyone!
I need some help as I am seriously undecided on this. I don’t know who to have in my bridal party beyond my Maid/Matron of Honor.
Here’s the deal….
My fiance has 2 sisters (24 & 33), a half-sister (37ish), a sister-in-law(25), and a niece (8). I would love to have the older of his two sisters in the party as we have a really great relationship and get along super well. My issue is, can I have just her, or should I ask his younger sister and also his sister-in-law. I get along with all of them pretty well, but his younger sister has a bad attitude and his sister-in-law will have just had a baby a few months prior so I”m not sure if she’d feel comfortable. I wasn’t planning to ask his half-sister as we don’t see her that often, but maybe I’ll have her do something else. Then there is the question of do I have his neice as his flower girl. She would basically be the only child there, unless we’d have to invite his cousins from out of state. I’m torn, I know she would like to do it, but I don’t know.
Any thoughts?? Anyone else in this situation have a positive outcome?

I think his 2 sisters yes, but not his sis-n-law or niece if you don’t want.
From my experience, you and your Fiance should choose who you absolutely want in your wedding. Others should understand.

I guess it’s a matter of how strongly do you not want them in your bridal party? If you’re indifferent, then just have them. Does Fiance have a preference of who he wants in or out of the wedding party?

having just one sister as a bm is fine. i would ask the others to do a reading or something so they’re included. and i love flower girls.

Have whoever you want in your wedding party. If you want a flower girl, have one. If you don’t want one, you don’t have to have one just because your FH has a niece.
You can certainly ask just the one sister to be in the bridal party. She can be the representative from your FH’s side of the family.

do you have other friends you want in it or just the one MOH? Id say figure that out and then choose which sisters. u dont have to have the older one with the baby. she prob wouldnt wanan deal with the trouble. the younger sister might like it but if shes a brat than forget it

I am having both my FI’s sisters and his sister in law in our party. He said it did not matter to him but I think that they were very excited to be asked and I know that I want to have his fmaily completely included in or day (family is very important to us) I am also having all of his neices as flower girls. I think if you want to have them you should, the more the merrier if you ask me!
