    Who is going to sign the marriage certificate?  You would just need someone to do that.

    @tksjewelry: In the state where I got married, any witness can sign the certificate – doesn’t have to be Bridesmaid or Best Man or Maid/Matron of Honor.

    I think it’s really sweet, and an awesome way to involve your FSD in the wedding!

    I  think its a bit of a stretch.  Usually you can tell your best friend a lot of things…like troubles at work…an 11 yr old will not “get it”

    I personally think Jr Bride or Bridesmaid would be an appropriate duty for his daughter.  That way, she is still included in the wedding.  I think your guy is just avoiding hurting his friends feelings.  *kanye shrug*

    I think this is adorable and a lovely way to include his daughter.  It would make it more of a “family wedding” instead of just you and her father.  I love the idea of the daughter standing by her father’s side during the ceremony – she is likely closer to him rather than you at this point, so standing up for him is great in my opinion.

    Edit: This is coming from someone who chose family other friends too.  I didn’t include any of my closest, day-to-day friends who I’ve known throughout grad school in my wedding.  Instead, I chose my sister to be my Maid/Matron of Honor (she’s 5 years younger than me) and my only female cousin to be my Bridesmaid or Best Man (she’s 7 years younger than me).  These are not people I turn to every day for advice (they are in a different point in life than I am), but they are family.  For me, weddings are about family.

    Well… I think that its YOURs and HIS wedding…


    Who cares what anyone else will think or say.  ITs whatever ever makes you guys happy


    Usually its the bride who has all the quirky things she’d like included in her wedding… but for a groomm to make an out there decision like this is something very special.


    I give him KUDOS!


    YOu have yourself a winner Miss Lady!
