I had a friend who did this at her wedding. Made sense to me and his speech about her was super sweet. 

Shrug off the gender normative naysayers!

I think this is very nice. I can’t see why anyone else should care if you don’t have girls standing next to you. If your brothers are your nearest and dearest, then you should have them there to support you on your wedding day.

Just ignore those people. It’s your wedding and it’s sweet to just include family. We’re doing something similiar, but skipping both bride & groom parties entirely. A couple people have mentioned it’s weird but we don’t care. Our wedding, our budget, our decisions.

I think each of you having your two siblings stand with you is perfect!


Don’t worry what anyone else says. Even if you have a party with several girls, there will always be someone feeling left out or some cousin you mom things you need to add.

I love this idea! I also have 2 brothers and my Fiance has 2 sisters. We are both not particularly close to the others’ siblings. We considered having our siblings as attendants, but my brothers standing with me, and his sisters standing with him.

It wasn’t really on purpose in my case. I just didn’t ask anybody to be a bridesmaid or Maid/Matron of Honor since the one friend I would have asked couldn’t come to my wedding sadly. So what ended up happening was my dad ended up standing with me. It was totally by accident. Nobody explained to us that he should go sit down after the “giving away.”

So now my husband and I just have a joke that my dad was my bridesmaid. But really it was no big deal and nobody seemed to mind. 

So me personally, I think asking your brother would be awesome and there is 0 wrong with it. You don’t need to have women up there with you if there aren’t people you feel close to 🙂
