So, with three months to the wedding, FI has decided he wants to ask his sister to be his fourth attendant. She was hurt when I didn't include her as a bridesmaid, so I'm hoping she'll be happy to be included, and not offended that it seems last minute (FI was very slow in picking all his groomsmen!).
I was hoping you ladies had suggestions about what she should wear. FI thinks she should wear a black dress to match the black tuxes. I know she has a black dress from another wedding she was in, so I thought that would also be easy for her to do with such a tight deadline. The bridesmaids are wearing clover green dresses, so I was thinking she could wear a green sash with the black dress. Or should she wear the same dress as the bridesmaids? Or a dress in the same green color?
Also, should she carry a bouquet like the bridesmaids? I don't think she should wear a boutonniere like the guys, but she could have a wrist corsage like the moms. If she does carry a bouquet, I was thinking of making her bouquet slightly different from the bridesmaids, but I guess I'm worried she'll feel like she's being singled out or otherwise be bothered that she's not being treated like one of the bridesmaids. I really like her and felt really bad about my decision not to ask her to be a bridesmaid, so I just want her to feel comfortable and happy!
I'm sure there aren't hard and fast "rules" on this, but if anyone has suggestions, I'd appreciate them!
