It's funny how political a wedding can get. I don't think you should compromise your plans and incorporate her as a BM. Perhaps try to include her in another way-- have her deliver a poem at the ceremony, or act as MC on rehearsal night. (I don't know... just throwing it out there, lol)
I had a similar issue with my FMIL asking if FIs little cousin was going to be a BM-- I was totally thrown off, but calmly explained that, because it was going to be a smaller intimate wedding I was keeping only closest friends and family within the party. I find that if you let them know it is going to be informal and personal that most people understand-- and because you have only a smaller wedding party as it is, that explanation should make sense to her.
Good luck! I'm sure your day will be amazing no matter what!

Thank you all so much for the help! I just started planning and feel overwhelmed and a little lost sometimes. I didn't even think to incorporate her in another part of the wedding which would be a great idea. Thank you all again.. I'm not sure what I would do without these forums!
