Wedding Attendants: Groom Wants Bride to Include His Sisters as Bridesmaids
A groom-to-be insists his bride include his three sisters as bridesmaids — even though it’ll cost her family extra (and she doesn’t know them). What should she do?

The Wedding Guru says: Etiquette offers a guide to good behavior, but it is by no means a law or written in stone. What should be a “law” is how you and your daughter behave toward her future husband’s family! Your wedding is a wonderful place for you to show that, when you marry, there’s no such thing as “his family” and “your family.”
That being said, I truly believe that your daughter should include her future sisters-in-law. Yes, that will add to the budget — the bride and bride’s family are responsible for bridesmaids’ flowers and local accommodations. However, undoubtedly this is an expense that would be very well worth it!
