Dear Miss. B. Perfect-Affair,
Help! My fiance and I are planning to get married later this year. Excited as we are, we have had one recurring problem: My little sister has now refused to be a part of our wedding! We selected other people to be our bridesmaids is what has caused these ripple-y waters. I love my little sister very much and want her to be a part of our special day, just as a personal attendant not a bridesmaid. There is less responsibility and we are just not close anymore. This has caused much pain and hurt feelings on both of us. I never intended on this or thought it would be such an issue. As our day nears, I’m wanting some sort of closure and to re-establish our relationship … that is without a hurtful message from her. HELP!
Thank you for your kind reply,
Yours is not an easy problem to have. Weddings can pull at the heartstrings on everyone who is involved or not involved. The best advice I can give you is this: It’s your wedding and about you and your fiance. You are bound to hurt some feelings. Although not intentional, almost unavoidable. As long as you expressed your feelings: You love her very much, want her to be there, and are hurting too there isn’t much else you can do. If you did express your feelings, all you can do is wait and hope she comes around. After all, it is your day.
Best wishes and good luck,
Miss. B. Perfect-Affairs
