Just a question I've been pondering lately. I've had several friends who have been forced by their parents (mother) to have their sister be Maid of Honor even though they don't get along with their sister and have friends more appropriate for the role. My sister was recently engaged and though I don't think she will, I've decided I will turn down an invitation to be a bridesmaid. I just don't know her well enough to be her bridesmaid and don't want to take a spot from a friend that does just because we happen to share the same blood. It makes sense to me for our other sister to be in the wedding, but not me. Why do people get so bent out of shape when a sibling isn't in the bridal party?

I don't get that either. A bridesmaid is supposed to be there to support and help the bride. Someone who's up to anything less should not be part of the wedding and just be happy to be invited. I think it's incredibly rude to force your way in honestly.0
