Growing up with sisters had a lot of advantages, like sharing clothes & toys, and always having a playmate around. It also had some rough times, but don’t all family structures see that? Anyway, along with having built-in playmates, having sisters means you have a built-in bridal party.

When I was 14, I was in MOH Big Sis’s wedding as a bridesmaid. It was my first taste of wedding anything, and I really didn’t have to do much. MOH Big Sis knew that BM Lil Sis (who was 12) and I didn’t know wedding stuff and didn’t have a lot of money, so the only things we had to do were buy our dresses and shoes for the wedding. She gifted us our jewelry and accessories (we wore elbow-length gloves and carried mini purses), and I think we had our hair done, paid for by mom. Oh, the new millennium. Anyway, our duties were very limited, and she relied on her MOH and other bridesmaid to do the real bridesmaid work.
