So, I was thinking of asking my FSIL to be a bridesmaid. She’s very involved in theatre and preforming arts, so I think she would do a wonderful job of being the MC.
Do you think this would be awkward having her do 2 roles? Should I ask her to just be the MC? She lives out of town, so wouldn’t be involved too much in the planning etc. I would like to honor her in the day somehow as we have bonded well and she’s such a lovely person.

I think asking her NOW would be a great idea to see how she personally feels about it! Maybe take her out to lunch and swing the idea by her! =) If you think its within her personality, its totally do’able!
My dad was the MC for my Aunt’s wedding and he’s a great talker and made a terrific MC!

I personally wouldn’t ask my BM to be a MC. I don’t want her to “work” doing my wedding. I want her to being able to enjoy my wedding.

We had our best man as the MC. He did a great job, was very charming and everyone loved him! On the other hand, we had a daytime wedding so he really just announced the speeches, cake cutting and our first dance. It wasn’t that much work for him.

One of our groomsmen is our MC. He’s thrilled to be doing it. I say ask her and see how she feels. She might not want the added responsibility, but she might really enjoy it.

My “bridesman” and one of my bridesmaids we co-MCs and it worked out great. It’s not like there’s really much else that they need to tend to at the reception. Not sure why it would be difficult to do both.

She definitely cant be both a BM and an MC. I was at a wedding where the best man was also the Dj and it was just messy

Some very opposing opinions here!
I guess the best thing to do is ask her if she’s comfortable doing both and approach it in a way she knows there is no hard feelings if she is not into it.
Thanks-please keep the comments coming, as I won’t be talking to her for at least another week!
