Hi there! I’m new to the boards. I’m having a destination wedding in June 2013, and I have a dilemma about who to ask to be my bridesmaids.
My Fiancee’s sister gave herself the title of bridesmaid as soon as we were engaged. I was upset about it at first, but I’ve decided to avoid drama, I’m going to let her be part of the wedding. I’m not the kind of girl with a lot of female friends anyway. As a matter of fact, I’m considering having her, and two of my best gay male friends. Has anyone else had a GBF by their side on their day? I’m assuming they would just wear what the groomsmen would wear. Is there an official title for this? I would love to see pictures if anyone else has done this.

My brother is my man of honor! He’s going to wear the same thing the groomsmen are.

My fiance was the maid man of honor at his sister’s wedding. And at our wedding, we will probably just each have our sister stand up with us on each side.

never heard of it I have heard of a woman as best man found it strange (but only because the groom had asked her out just before he got with his current partner but she said no)
That being said I think its a brilliant idea, I would maybe change the colour of the waist coat or tie though to show they arent groomsmen there bridesmen

I’m leaning toward having a man of honor. If I can convince my friend to make the trip out for it, then my guy is going to ask one of his good friends – a woman – to stand with him.
I think you can have them wear whatever you want. If you want to distinguish their suits a bit, go ahead and do that. I’d consider asking them what they would like to do, too.

My fiance and I both have bridesmen and groomsmaids as our wedding party. For my bridesmen, the color of their ties and vests will match my bridesmaids dresses. For the groom’s side, the groomsmaids dresses will match the color of the groomsmen and best man’s ties and vest.

One of my exes (turned amazing best friend ming you) is my man of honor! He is wearing the same thing as the grooms, but his bout will be a different color to match the bridesmaid’s bouquets.

Having a “Man of Honour” is really popular now-adays…
