Bill G: How unusual would it be for the sister of the groom to be the maid of honor at a wedding?
How unusual is the following scenario? I just started dating my sister’s friend. In fact, the girl that I am dating probably considers my sister to be her BEST friend. If we ended up getting married how unusual would it be for my sister to be the maid of honor? Is such a scenario entirely unheard of?

If that is what the bride wants, why not? I am sure this has happened before.

You write: Is such a scenario entirely unheard of?
Of course not!
My own mother married her (high school) best friend’s brother. As both sister-in-law AND friend, my mom was an attendant at her best friend’s wedding.
The groom’s sister frequently serves as a member of the bridal party. There is absolutely no reason for you to be concerned about it.
What concerns me?
You write: I just started dating my sister’s friend.
Why would you worry about the bridal party, when you’ve only just started dating? Sounds as though someone is rushing things . . . way too fast.
But you want another option?
Gender no longer matters when selecting your attendants. If the scenario mentioned above truly concerns you, ask your sister to stand up on YOUR side . . . as one of YOUR attendants.
I have seen it a lot of times but remember it is the bride’s choice.

Not unusual at all. The wedding party is for both the bride and groom; for convenience’s sake, they are just divided by gender.Answer by nova_queen_28
One of my co-workers had that happen – her brother married her best friend and so she was the MOH.
I guess its not all that unusual.Answer by *~Princess Penguin~*
It’s not unusual at all! Our friends who got married a year ago did the same thing. The brides brother was best man, and the grooms sister was the maid of honor. It wasn’t cause they were best friends or anything, they just wanted to keep it in the family. It’s a great idea. There’s no wrong way with this, you guys can plan it however you want!
