So it’s 30 days until one of my bestest friends wedding where I am Maid/Matron of Honor, sucha honor. This wedding was really last minute (like she started planning last week). Last night I found out that the Best Man is the groom’s brother. Pretty typical only problem is me and the Best man have a bit of a past. Nothing insane but we did hook up for awhile but we both are with other people and super happy. But since me and SO have been together he’s been requesting me every couple of months on IG until I finally blocked not that there’s any ill will between us but we were never friends so I don’t see the point in us being friends on social networks and also out of respect for his girlfriend as well as my honey. I wasn’t so super happy that he was the best man but hey its their day where as my SO was pissed. Any tips for keeping emotions at bay. I know it doesn’t seem like a huge problem but being that hes a player and slick dog I wanna prepare myself so to speak lol

@eecuadrado: It’s one day and you only have to spend a few minutes (maybe 15 total) standing next to this guy during the ceremony, some pictures, and the reception entrances. I don’t think it’s out of line to ask that you not be seated next to him during the reception if there is assigned seating. Other than that, there is no need for you to talk with him or hang out with him during the wedding. Just be cordial and if he gets chatty, tell him you need to find the bride because you have something she needs (lipstick, tissues, whatever) and walk away without waiting for a response. Make sure your SO knows to avoid the Bridesmaid or Best Man completely, especially if he might get in a fight or be confrontational.

@eecuadrado: I guess I really don’t see the issue here.. Yes, you two have a past but you said you’re both happy in your new relationships. Like PP said, you probably won’t even have to be around him that much. Don’t make it a bigger deal than what it is. You’re all adults.
