Response: Hi Erica, It is fine to ask only your cousin to be a bridesmaid. You might ask the step-cousin to do a reading or to participate in some other way. That way, she wont feel as obligated as she would if you asked her to be a bridesmaid and, if she really doesnt want to participate, she may not feel as bad if she declines. By asking her to do something, that should appease your aunt as well.
