I have been very absent lately, with school and attending my fiance''s sister''s wedding. I wanted to honor the event by chatting about how great a job she did at making me feel included without asking me to be a bm. We are similar in age and get along great, though don''t know each other all that well. We see each other at holidays, and have had the opportunity to take a vacation together with our guys recently.

From the very start, she had been introducing me as her "sister to be" to her friends. She was proactive including me in family photos, I had a "reserved" seat in the family section (my df was a groomsman). She invited me up to the bridal suite to get my hair done by the hairdresser who was doing the bm''s hair and general hang out with the bms and help her get ready. This pretty much amazed me. I made myself useful and was a good extra pair of hands since I didn''t need to be fully dressed at the same time as everyone else.

By the end of the night we were joking about hiring her to plan my wedding!

These were all little things, but really went a long way to make me feel included in her day, and the family.

I feel so lucky to be joining df''s family.

Cheers.

I am so glad to hear that you had such a positive experience at your FI''s sister''s wedding! She sounds like a great girl and so very thoughtful.

Its great to hear this sort of story after all the horrible bridezilla stories we hear about bride''s mistreating their family on their wedding day. Thanks for sharing!

What a nice post! When I read the title I was all ready for a bridezilla post a la DB!

It's nice to hear that some people are gracious and have good manners (outside of PS ladies, of course, who are always gracious
)

A nice handwritten card sent in the mail and something small... if you catch something you''ll think she''ll like.

She sounds truly wonderful!

Thank you all for your suggestions about sending a note. I wasn''t sure if would be appropriate or not, but based on all of your responses, I''m excited to do so.

I totally agree that we tend to hear more of the crazy family drama, it''s nice to know that there are other versions out there. (Not that we''re perfect of course)
