I don’t see why it would be a big deal if she were to hang with the guys during pictures, as long as it’s ok with your groom. However, I also don’t think that she should be added to the limo. That’s just not fair for the other members of your Bridal Party. I would just have your Fiance casually talk to his Groomsmen about what his plans are for the day of.

@MeganRae1230:  I think you kind of are. why don’t you wait and see if anything needs to be said instead of potentially damaging a friendship. Does your Fiance care that much?

I don’t think it would be a big deal. The guys don’t do very much anyway except pose for the pictures, why not have her there?

So yeah, I think you should just accomodate and/or let the Groomsmen make his own decisions. I’m sure he’s missed her and vice versa, but they are still capable of being decent I’m sure! Unless you know something I don’t about them, of course.

My brother (who was a GM) had his date there all day (including getting ready) and she and my little sister hung out a lot, it wasn’t a big deal. Also, my Maid/Matron of Honor was leaving for her study abroad trip the night of my wedding (freak scheduling accident, she found out two months before the wedding), so I offered for her SO to hang around also. Bridesmaid or Best Man 2’s SO was also hanging around. It was no big deal because I didn’t notice or care and nothing “bad” happened.

No, the SOs aren’t coming early before the wedding to be there for pictures. SOs can come to the rehearsal dinner, but the morning of the wedding is just the bridal party. I also don’t think it’s unreasonable to have her drive herself. She will be with him the night before and for the reception- i think that is all that should be expected 🙂 Ask your Fiance to talk to him about what the plans are so he knows and can tell his Girlfriend

I think you should let your Fiance take the lead on this and not stress about it too much. This is one of his very dearest friends, and the potential for hurt feelings in this situation is high. Besides, he’s been missing his sweetheart all this time–try to be gracious and cut him some slack! Don’t let such a joyous occasion for you become an excuse for separating other young couples in love or create a wedge between your Fiance and his friend. And you know, if he does spend all day mooning about with his Girlfriend, your Fiance can give him endless grief about it at their wedding…

Our groomsmen’s wife hung out with the girls during our wedding.  Not a big deal.  She was so helpful, getting us food, holding our stuff.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  I’m sure he’ll be happy to see his gf but also have a great time being a gm for your fi.  No need to stress.  Either way, what’s one more person in the limo.
