Would you think it was weird if the bride didn’t have bridesmaids but bridesmen instead? My partner would also have just groomsmen, no females – leading to an all male wedding party.
The two bridesmen that I would have would be my brothers. I do have a lot of female friends but I think I’d like to keep the wedding party small and I don’t really want to pick and chose between my friends! My partner would have his two best friends in his party (he is an only child).
Note: this is completly hypothetical at this point because we’re not engaged, I just like thinking about these things!

I think this is totally fine!

Totally fine. The fact that they are your brothers would also help with some of the more traditional people who might find this less fine.

I love co-ed bridal parties as a rule.
And these men are your blood relations! I can’t imagine who would question that. It’s not like you’ve got all your ex-boyfriends in the crew. (I, admittedly, might raise an eyebrow if you had multiple ex-boyfriends escorting you down the aisle…)

It’s certainly different. But if it’s what you want go for it! It’s your special day x

- Wedding: September 2015 - Hotel Ballroom
Bro-maids are awesome!
Now the question is would they be dressed the same or different than the groomsmen?

Seems totally fine to me!

I’m doing the same thing, and having my two brothers as bridesmen! It really took some stress off my shoulders as I don’t have to worry about bridemaid dresses, bouquets, and hair/makeup.

I think it’s so sweet, if I attended this wedding it would make me really happy.
I wouldn’t include my brother because, unfortunately, we just aren’t very close, but if we were I would include him with no reservations.

If it is family that you are having, then no. If it were all male friends, then yes. I know someone who had her brother as her “man of honor” It was very sweet and touching.
I had my male cousin in my wedding, but as a groomsman. I think you should pick the people who mean the most to you! That is the most important thing!

Thanks guys! Like I said, not actually wedding planning but my mum and I were discussing it and she thought it might look weird (mostly in pictures) and that I should have some girls. I was just wondering what others thought 🙂
snowflake8 : I assume they would be dressed differently, I think that would look nice! Maybe in two different shades of navy? Or different ties?
lucky13th : That’s awesome! I’d love it if you’d post pictures after your wedding so I can have a look, since I can’t really find many examples online.
