Tips For Sister of the Groom

Savvy Community: Sister of the Groom's Obligations?

Weddings are all about families and love, but sometimes it can be hard to gauge how much money and time you need to give when a relative is tying the knot. LSAV5 recently posted a familiar question in our Q and A group.

I'm a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding. What are my obligations as a sister? Do I need to organize an event on my own?

Are you planning or attending a wedding and need help with a finance or etiquette question? Ask for help from our Savvy Bride in our Ask Savvy group or ask anything in our easy Q&A group.

i was in my brother's wedding as well. i don't think there is any need to plan an event, just be a good sister and try to pick up any slack you can. in my case, this involved helping out with some of the clean-up at the end of the night, transporting the bridesmaids from out of town to get their dresses, picking up the bride's dress, trying to keep the self-centered bridesmaid from completely pissing off my brother, and leaving their house (where most of the bridal party stayed) free of dirty dishes.

I don't think you have any additional obligations aside from regular bridesmaids duties

I don't think you need to organize an event but maybe just ask what they need help with and if you do want to throw a party, let them know!
