Question: I have 4 bridesmaids- my 2 sisters, my stepsister, and my best friend.
My stepsister is pretty much being forced to be in my wedding. Her mother(my stepmom) is really pushing her to be in my wedding. Stepsis still lives at home. I have no problem with my stepsister being a bridesmaid, but you can tell she doesn't want to do it. She is pretty clear that the only thing she's willing to do is to show up for the wedding, and has even admitted to me that going to weddings make her depressed, and that she will not participate in bridal showers or bridemaid luncheones.
I am younger than my stepsister, and my stepsister has suffered from depression. A lot of her depression has to do with that she is extremely lonely and doesn't have many friends, and is still single. She's close to 30. She absolutely hates weddings because it reminds her that she is still single.
I don't know what to do about my stepsister. I feel like she is a grown up and can decline being a bridesmaid if she wants. But then my stepmom tells my stepsister that if she is not in my wedding it will make our family look bad.
