I have decided not to ask my only sister to be a bridesmaid for my wedding. Now, before anyone judges, there are several reasons for this:
1. My sister is Aspbergers spectrum and does NOT handle stress well. Furthermore she cannot stand someone touching her face or hair, will not wear makeup and loathes dressing up. Public speaking is out of the questiOn.
2. We are not close, and often do not get along
3. She has a hair trigger temper and low meltdown threshold, the pressure of being a BM would likely make her physically ill or at best very uncomfortable.
I love my sister, despite our being so very different, and I want to include her in my wedding in some way or another and am looking for suggestions. We are having a small civil ceremony, so a reading isn't really an option and I don't simply want to "put her to work" for the sake of including her.
Thoughts? Please be kind, this wasn't an easy decision for me to make.
