I think that depends on if you are ok with having a man in a dress in all your wedding party pictures. Do you know how your guests would react and either way, would it bother you?

I’m having my best friend stand on my side, he won’t be in a dress but his vest will match the bridesmaid dresses.  I suppose it depends on you if you’d be cool with a man in a dress in your wedding.

Would I have a male in my bridal party? Yes. Would I have him wear a dress in my wedding? No.

Hmm…I think it would depend on how comfortable he is in men’s clothing. If he’s constantly dressed like a woman, then I think I would go with it. If he occassionally wears men’s clothing, though, I would definitely have him wear a tux.

yes on the male bridesmaid and probably not on the dress. Even if he dresses exclusively in drag I don’t think I could handle the possibility of people whispering or pointing during the ceremony :

If he’s a cross-dresser then I would place him in a dress the same/similar to other BMs.  That would be appropriate.  But NOT a white dress 🙂

i am having a ‘bridesman’. he will wear a suit. the florist wanted him to carry a bouquet, but FI family is on the conservative side, so i left it up to him- if he really wanted a bouquet, than he could have one, but he could also just have a boutonniere (save $$ too!). best man will wear a suit, he does dress in drag on occasion, but lives as a man and wears men’s clothing most of the time. if he lived only wearing women’s clothing then we would have respected it, but that’s not the case in our situation.

I always planned to have my male friend in my wedding, but we’re not as close as we were and I’m only having two bridesmaids so that’s not going to happen.  He would have worn a suit.  IF I were having a transsexual in my bridal party, of course she would wear a dress though.  Why make an m to f wear m clothes?  That’s just rude.  Would you ask your sister to wear a tux?  There will be at least one at my wedding but not in the bridal party, however, so she (or they) will wear whatever she pleases.
