I need some help with this one. My fiancé and I are having a small wedding and a small bridal party. When I say a small wedding, 100 people will be there, including the wedding party. The bridal party we plan to have is also very small only three brides maids and three groomsmen. My fiancés best friend, the only person he has ever mentioned that he wants to be his best groomswoman, is a woman.
This is totally fine with me, I have no issue with this at all. I do want the wedding party to look cohesive standing up there. I plan to put my bridesmaids in grey dresses and the groomsman in light grey suits with a vest and jacket. The bridesmaids were given the color that I wanted from David’s Bridal and can pick any dress that they want. The men are all going to get their suits from the same tailor.
The color scheme we are going with is Grey and yellow, it is an outdoor garden wedding. The bridesmaids will have yellow bouquets and yellow boutonnières for the groomsmen, and a yellow corsage for the best groomswamn.
What do with his best groomswoman? Do I give her the same color for David’s bridal and have her pick her dress like the bridesmaids? Do I put her in a pants suit, I don’t want to de-faminize her?
HELP!!!!! I don’t know what to do.

@mgmurphy85: I’d let her choose if she wants to wear a dress or pantsuit. I think there are some incredibly feminine, sexy pantsuits available out there!

I would dress her the same as your Maid/Matron of Honor. That really is the role she is playing–best “person” to the bride/groom.

I’d ask what she prefers to wear: pants suite, dress, or skirt and blouse. If she prefers a dress, then I’d ask her to wear a grey dress that is similar color, fabric, and length to your BMs’, but not the same dress your BMs are wearing.

I just went to a friend’s wedding, and they had opposite sex attendants. The groom’s sister just wore the same things that the bridesmaids did.

I wouldn’t put her in a suit… unless she’s particularly masculine.

I agree about her wearing the same dress as the Maid/Matron of Honor

I don’t know if your familiar with the show “Girlfriends” but Joan was her friend Williams “Best Woman” and she wore a nice pant suit. I say a gray pant suit with a yellow blouse underneath the jacket, and a nice yellow corsage would also be nice to go along with it. Hope this helps! Good luck!!
