Ask Liz: Have the Bridesmaids You Want (Los Angeles Wedding Planner)

My advice column on the Broke Ass Bride this week is up:

Dear Liz,
I am in a pickle right now. My Maid of Honor has dropped out of my wedding (for valid reasons) and my older sister is replacing her. She was already a bridesmaid so it just seemed right.  I really want to have the same amount of bridesmaids as groosmen and now I am short one. My parents are pushing me to make my little sister  a bridesmaid. But two things hold me back…
1. She’s only  13.
2. We don’t get along at all.
She was already going to be in the wedding as a candle lighter but that is not good enough for my parents. My problem is that if I put her into the wedding I am afraid she will try and grab the spotlight, and take the day away from my fiance and me, since she is VERY self-centered.  Or, do I not put her in it and let my mother make the rest of my life a living hell? I feel like I won’t win either way.

There is a solution to every problem, you just have to be willing to find it...and then do it. Find out what I told her she should do and join in the discussion. And, yes, Starbucks will TOTALLY write that on your coffee cups on your wedding day. I get "wedding planner" on mine all the time.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you at the end of the aisle,
