My fiance and I were talking, and I asked him about which of his friends he would want to stand with him at the alter.
Not so much to my surprise, he said he would rather not have anyone stand with him, but would like his father to be his best man.
I have 3 of my close friends as bridesmaids and they will walk down the aisle before me, but will not be standing with me.
My querey is…does anyone here think there is anything wrong with my fiance not having groomsmen in the wedding?

@littleowlivia: I think its weird you didn’t talk about this before you asked anyone to be your bridesmaids, but no I don’t think there is anything wrong with your fiance not wanting to have groomsmen.

i think it’s his choice.. i know people who didn’t have a party.. i think it’s kinda weird that you don’t want the girls standing with you if they’re going to be walking down the aisle.. i read somewhere on these boards that its common for southerners to pick their dad as best man.. so let him have what he wants, i dont think it’s weird – everyones different!

The last wedding I attended had 8 bridesmaids and 0 groomsmen. The groom didn’t want to have to choose only 8 of his friends lol. Nobody questioned anything, and the wedding was a BLAST!! 🙂

this is exactly what we are doing. his dad is his best man and i have 3 bridesmaids. they will all be standing with me. and all will walk alone.

I think it’s fine if he just wants his dad that what he gets.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. I may end up going the same route… my HTB is from Egypt, we will be marrying here in Canada and he won’t know people yet.
HOWEVER, I did come up with this idea: I’m asking the spouses/significant others of my Maid/Matron of Honor and 2 Bridesmaids to be groomsmen, and two of my cousins (siblings) will be a bridesmaid/groomsman pair.
There are no rules, so have him do what he wants!

Yep, i agree with others. Nothing serious. Just follow his choice. Best regards for you!!
