My sister (2 years older than me) is going to be my MOH. She has been in Namibia for the past 1.5 years and won't be back stateside until October 2016. The wedding is in July 2018.
She is not the biggest fan of my FI, which might be for another thread... but she is also feeling a little - left-behind, maybe, is the right phrase? - that her little sister is getting married before her, got proposed to 'without her' and is now planning a wedding while she is halfway across the world. I want her to be happy about the wedding, feel like she is a part of it, and hopefully feel closer to/happier about my FI in the process.
Talking to her about all this is difficult because she is in a very rural village and the reception is terrible. We can communicate mostly through Whatsapp (texting basically). I try to call her when I can, but even when I get through, the conversation lasts about 10 minutes, is often really hard to hear each other, and we get disconnected every few minutes, so it ends up being frustrating. Thankfully the network held out for me to tell her I got engaged! But there is a 9 hour time difference and I accidentally woke her up at 6 am
She also does not generally have access to internet, and when she does, it is very brief and limited.
The venue will be selected before she is back - I've sent her a couple photos of what we are looking at so that she feels like she knows what is going on and can offer input.
Anyways - any general thoughts on how to make her feel included?
I'm not really sure what 'her domain' is as MOH. I've never been in a WP so I'm not sure what it involves. We've talked a tiny bit about wedding dress shopping and the bachelorette party. The rest of the WP has not been determined. Some threads I see say the WP basically just has an obligation to show up in a dress on the day, and others have lists of 'WP obligations'.
Thanks for any feedback!
