- Wedding: June 2013
Soon after my fiance and I got engaged we decided in order to avoid hurting our friends’ feelings we would put close family in our wedding party (also thinking that we would have minimum drama from them). Boy were we wrong.
My girls are set and are my 3 sisters, my furture sister in law and a childhood friend who is like a sister (her husband is also marrying us).
His are to be his dad, bro in law, best friend from childhood, one of my bro is laws, and my oldest newphew.
The issue has been brought to my attention that my other brother in law is being blatently left out of the family and that I should make him a groomsman. The issue is that due to work obligations my fiance doesnt know him and has only been around him 2 or 3 times. Not really a close relationships. I had planned on including him somehow, probably as a usher and maybe even escort my mother since other family members will be otherwise occupied.
I feel like this is a loose-loose situation and no one seems to hear what we want. Am I being over dramatic or ignoring the concerns of my family or being hurtful to the left out bro in law?
