That’s tough.  Why not ask your brother what HE thinks?  Despite your mother pressuring you, he may not even WANT to be a Groomsmen.  I think you should get an idea of what he wants first.

I think being a greeter would be MORE difficult if many of your guests are spanish speaking.  As for groomsman, yeh, not a big deal to include him or not.  But when opposite (sex) family members are in a bridal party, they don’t necessarily need to attend the groom (or bride’s festivities) like the bachelor party.

I was recently the only non-spanish speaking bridesmaid. While it was tough, I knew that everyone understood me any time I said anything, and the bride, groom, and another bridesmaid spoke Engiish around me (and translated) as well. Most spanish speakers in the US understand English quite well, but simply prefer to speak Spanish. I was actually very surprised at how smooth the whole thing works – it’s not as awkward as you might think!

I don’t really think it matters, and it’s kind of funny you even bring it up. Unless the other GMs ONLY speak Spanish. Is that the case? I had 6 BMs, 4 spoke Spanish, 2 didn’t. And I didnt think anything of it. The important thing is that you choose the people who support you the most, and you want to honor…has nothing to do with whether or not they can communicate perfectly with each other…IMO
