My half-sister just wrote me an email questioning why I didn't ask her to be a bridesmaid this time around. I'm having a hard time wording my answer, and I'm hoping that you ladies can help.
1. This may sound lame, but I am trying not to 'repeat' as much as I can from my first wedding.
2. We are honestly not that close. I'm 11 years older than she is, we grew up in different houses, and I only talk to her about three or four times a year.
I have asked her to be a reader (way before this email), trying to avoid hurting her feelings. I suppose it didn't work.
Any thoughts on how to tell her why? Also, is she being a little rude asking me this?
