Yikes. That is no fun. I would have been really ticked at Darling Husband if he hadn’t wanted to include my brothers. But they all get along great and he’s like a big brother to them. I guess every relationship is different?

It all comes down to whether or not you want to make a big deal about it. What are your thoughts on having your brothers on YOUR side? I considered that as well, in the event that Darling Husband didn’t want my brothers on his side. I know it’s non-traditional, but just an idea. 🙂

Also, the sides don’t have to be even. Don’t feel like you have to search for people to “fill” your side. I ended up with 3 on my side and he had 4. It was okay. 🙂

Good luck!

@madteaparty:  How many are we talking here? Also…is there any reason he doesn’t want them on his side? Just wondering.

@madteaparty:  if you are close with your brothers then i would add them to your side.  if not, perhaps your brothers can be ushers at your wedding.  they will still have a part but not stand up with you.  you still have a few months to make your decision.

Why not make your brothers ushers?

Why not have your brothers do readings at the ceremony, and do toasts at the reception?

Keep it with those 2 girls, have the girls walk down themselves, the guys already at the alter when the ceremony starts

Why don’t you talk to your brothers and see how they feel? You can explain your delimma and ask their advice.
