Maybe just ask them to be the primary ushers or do a reading or heck even marry you if you dont have a pastor or someone to do it yet

I would make them ushers, or give one of them a reading to do in the ceremony.

ithroughout went through the same situation!!! I have more guy friend than girl friends but we went with wall female “bridesmaids”. I ended up having two of my guy friends as ushers. They are going to hand out programs and help seat the guests. Because of them we are not having the groomsmen act as ushers. My FI agreed that that was a fair idea in order to include more people in our special day. Plus the chosen groomsmen already have jobs and special recognition. No need to have them do two jobs if you have others who could. Also my ushers are gong to walk our female readers down the aisle during the procession. Readings are a good way to include people too!

in general, I think you can double up on wedding duties if you don’t want to have a lot of people. But if you want to include other special someone’s you can divide and conquer – there’s lots to be done!

Hope your guys get to have a role in your day!!

idk i just don’t feel like it’s necessary to everyone you’re close to be a part of the bridal party/wedding ceremony. i guess you could have them do a reading or something if you really want them to be
