I think you can do it. If my fiancé couldn’t fit my brother in, I would hav put him in my bridal party.

I think you should do it. Don’t even tell people that’s your plan if you’ll feel bad if they question it. My SIL had her brother as her “Man of Honor” and it was great.

I had my three brothers as bridesmen!  I loved that I had them on my side.  I had them coordinate with the groomsmen.

I would say go for it. I wouldn’t mention that it wasn’t the first choice, just say that’s your choice and everyone will have to get over it Laughing

I’ve always found the bridesman/groomsmaid thing weird.  A friend of mine had his sisters stand with him and it just seemed weird to me.  I understand why people want to do it but I personally don’t like it.

I say go for it!  It’s your wedding and you should be standing up there with the people who love you most and who you love most!

I think you should go for it! Wedding parties are about who is important to you, not about gender 🙂

Do it, and have him wear a suit that’s the same color as your bridesmaids so he’ll match. Because that would be awesome. Or silly. You probably shouldn’t take my advice on that part lol

I had a man of honor, so I don’t see why not.

I think having a bridesman is a really cool idea.

I will be having a bridesman. My SO thinks it’s odd though, so he’ll be standing with the groomsmen.

Do it! It’s becoming more common now. If the bridesmaid side of my wedding didn’t already have more than the groomsmen, my best male friend would be up there with me too.
