- Wedding: August 2012
So here’s the deal. I have two fantastic little brothers, and by little, I mean 24 and 22 by the time the wedding bells ring next August. If they were my sisters (which I don’t have) they would, without a doubt be standing by my side, with most likely my 24 year old brother as my Maid of Honor.
However, since they are not, I am severly torn about where their place is in the bridal party. Mr. Oregon also has two brothers, one of which he will ask to be his best man, and his five best friends who are to make up his groomsmen. Which leaves me with my predicament. Mr. Oregon will have seven in total, and I already have five ladies and two cousins that I have in mind for my bridal party.
With that said, I am not sure where I should place my brothers. When I originally proposed the idea to them that they would be my brides men, they were a little taken a back by the fact that they wouldn’t be walking down the aisle with a bridesmaid, which was followed by atleast two rounds of giggling and jokes that go right along with their maturity level.
Mr. Oregon’s idea (which I am not fully opposed to) is for them to be ushers, dressed just like the groomsmen, and of course with full bridal party honor, but just not standing up at the alter alongside us. We are looking at a guest list of 250 or so, so it is something that we need too.
I just feel a little torn about where my brothers’ places are on our big day…
Hive–any ideas? Have any of you been in this situation or had brides men or an un equal number of attendants?
