Q: My daughter’s fiance wants his three sisters to be her bridesmaids. She hardly knows them, and I don’t want the added cost of including them. What should we do?
A: There is no rule that says your daughter must included her future sisters-in-law. However, the bride’s family is responsible only for the bridesmaids’ flowers and local accommodations, so you wouldn’t be adding a huge amount of additional expense. The bigger concern is any hurt feelings caused by the exclusion. The choice is ultimately personal — and including them may give your daughter the opportunity to create stronger family ties.
