Ask Colin: Wedding Etiquette

Due to a small budget I am planning on only having one attendant at my wedding. How can I incorporate my five sisters into the celebration? I don't want them to feel left out.

There are many things they can do. One could handle the seating cards when the guests arrive, another could man the guestbook if you are having one, one gets to read a passage at the ceremony and one makes a toast during the dinner. Of perhaps ask all five of them to do a reading together or make a speech together during the ceremony or reception.
