    I wouldn’t have a girl stand on his side.  Can he maybe pick his dad to be his best man?  It’s a tradition in the South, from what I understand.  Do either of you have any male relatives you’re close to?  Do you have male friends on your side that you’re close to?

    My first choice would be to try to find the one man in his life that he is close with – even if it’s your son (Junior Groomsman?), and if not then I would just have 3 girls on your side and no one on his side.  Although, I think maybe this should be a bit of a wakeup call for him to try to keep in touch with some friends.  :/

    Dont have him pick up guys whom he doesnt reguarlly hang with. it would be akward for all involved. I thnk it be nice to have his sister on his side. And maybe even your son if hes old enough to stand with him.

    I think it’s fine to have his sis and your son on his side.  Very cute!

    Yeah, I think his sister and possibly your son on his side would be fine. Does he have any idea who he would want as a groomsperson?

    From what your saying his son is his best friend. He should definetly stand their with him. Maybe his dad aswell or any other family member he is close to.

    I dont see anything wrong with his sister standing with him. I have a cousin who stood with her brother.. she even wore a suit…lol. 

    But definately your son should stand with him.

    Perhaps your son and his sister stand with him? Or his father? Or a significant other from his family?

    I had a similar problem, my husband-to-be didn’t want anyone intitally… That said, he has since changed his mind and asked a really lovely, long-standing friend of his, who is estatic to be bestman. I think it’s important that husband-to-be has someone to support him on the day… 

    I have my sister and step daughters on my side (husband-to-be’s children).

    @langloiswedding2013:  love the idea of his sister and your son on his side, your BMs on yours. I would have his sister wear whatever your BMs are wearing and have your son wear a little tie or something in a coordinating color!

    Does he not have any guys that he feels close to?  Not hanging out doesn’t necessarily mean that there isn’t a friendship there.  I have good friends that we may not talk regularly or hang out because we are so spread out, but our mutual respect and friendship still remains.  Does he have people like that in his life?

    Maybe this is threadjacking, but I’m a little worried for a guy who apparently has zero friends other than his future wife and his child.
