In theory, weddings are a time for celebration, a day where family and friends spruce themselves up to celebrate your public declaration of love. The smallest of babies are dressed to look like tiny cherubs, and the oldest attendants bust out the lipstick and suit coats to pay homage to love.
In emotionally healthy scenarios, a bride would encourage her siblings to dress their best (barring the use of a white dress) for the big day. However, every family has its own context and some rivalries manage to poison the planning around the Big Day.
"AITA for asking my sister to wear something modest to my wedding?"
Because of this, her sister isn't in the wedding party.
I (37) am getting married in six months. My little sister (23) asked me about colors the other day, so she could avoid them (she is not in my wedding because we are not close, largely because I was a freshman in high school when she was born). When she did so, I made a request: could she * please * wear something modest to my wedding.
