    Hello :)
    Need some advice/ideas!

    We are having a church wedding and love the idea of having a couple of readings...I am having my best friend as my one and only bridesmaid...I have 2 sisters and h2b has 1 sister. We would like his sister and my older sister to do a reading each. I havent asked my younger sister because I know it would be her worst nightmare to stand up in front of everyone. What I am asking about is something else that I could get her to do or be involved in on the day so she doesnt feel left out or fall out with me! I havnt got my sisters as bridesmaids because they were mine for my 1st wedding so want it to be different this time around, which caused a lot of fall out with the younger sister so I need some ideas please!! Any help would be really appreciated! Thank you! :)

    Could she present the rings perhaps? Or be a witness? Or you could give her small but important tasks like looking after your essentials (lippy, tissues, phone, etc)?

    How old is your younger sister? Could she sign the certificate for you as your witness rather than your BM.

    I'd say signing the register is the most obvious thing. Otherwise are there any skills that she has that you can make use of? Is she good with flower arrangement for example, or baking?

    30th August 2014 was the best birthday ever.
    It was the day that I became Mrs. Dixon.

    Could they say Grace before the meal?

    Thank you for the brilliant ideas! Heres hoping there will be no more fall outs! My sisters nearly 24 and im 27 so you would think that we are beyond all that but shes a very jealous person so we are always coming to blows! Its a shame i feel as though I have to tip toe around any decision i make because of how she might react! Never mind thats just families I guess! Thank you everyone! :)

    Signing the certificate as a witness is the obvious choice x

    I agree with the others and think asking her to be a witness would be a good way of involving her xxx

    Agree with asking her to be a witness. I have 3 sisters and a half sister. I can't afford to have all of them as bridesmaids so my half sister is bridesmaid, my two younger sisters, who are twins, are ushers and the other sister is a witness. H2B's brother is also an usher and his sister is a witness too
