She did more than I'd've done honestly. Asking to take of best friends and cousins because they think should come before that?Sleepy...
Again, I'm so happy my fiance has no sisters.

I understand where some people are coming from with the joining of two families. However, I saw the bridal party as the people closest to the bride and groom who are also giving them away/ supporting them on the joyous occasion day. They're the ones standing behind the bride/groom.

Meh, at the end of the day, they have plenty of years ahead to grow a bond. I just don't understand wanting to be a part of a bridal party and hanging with the bride when you aren't that close.

And for those who said they could be part of the bridal festivities, I don't know if they will being that her bridesmaids are taking charge on that. I told her to tell them to invite them though, just so they can't say that her family and friends are shutting them out.

BB- I went to a wedding with a bridal party of 40 before. INSANE!!! I can't imagine 10 more Dead
I missed your post though sadly but I'm assuming about your son's wedding according to other comments...

I mean 14ppl is a lot considering that you're saying that this chick and her fiance are also paying for all the dresses and tuxes. That's a lot of people. I didn't read all 13 pages before posting so I don't know if your friend is local or not, but if she's not in the immediate NYC metro area, that's an added cost as well.

IMO a big bridal party = too many egos just waiting to pop off. I wouldn't want to deal with that. But if she's not even close with her fiance's siblings, they can have several good hard Ikea seats.

Bride told them her family were the first ones who she thought of. They told her they were basically her family now so she should just keep her sisters and lop off her cousins and friends to add them.
*Bride and groom had plans to have their immediate family wear specific colors and also walk down the aisle(right after bridal party, before flower girls) and they were to be announced at reception when they announce everyone in the bridal party. They said that is corny and they didn't want to do that(the sisters)


 

Well hell, be rs can't be choosers, atleast they'd still be apart of the wedding party. It ain't their wedding in the first place to be trying to dictate how things go.

Group discount on tux rental(10 or more you get a discount-her father and his, and his grandpa are added in to get it LOL) and they're only paying half for the bridesmaids and no she's LI too...

thats cute. i don't like the immediate family walking in. 
thats only for mother/father of the bride/groom and stuff. 

but the color coding is nice. i don't think they should get into a constant bicker with the bride about it though. just let the other family members point it out. and say, well "it is what she wanted". if they start being the bigger bitches, they'll basically take her side.

Lol seriously though...

Unless the sisters are chipping in financially for the wedding, they need to stop being obnoxious.

The couple needs to firmly set forth boundaries now because these sisters in law are an interfering handful. Firmly tell them no and don't leave any room for discussion.
