I’m leaning towards having a single maid of honor–and no other bridesmaids–for my destination wedding. (Otherwise I’d have 12+ maids!). However, it’s VERY important to me and my fiance to incorporate our siblings into the actual wedding, if in fact they’re not in the wedding party. Is there anything…beyond a reading…that we can do to include them? Coming up to stand with us while we say our vows, for instance? I don’t know..I’m at a complete loss…but I know this community is incredibly creative so I thought I’d turn it to you. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!

Instead of having 12 maids, why dont you have just the siblings be the wedding party. Unless you have 12 sisters/SILs

I had this issue too. I have one older brother that my Fiance isn’t really close to. They have a good relationship, but we’re only having 3 on each side and Fiance has a brother and two best friends… It just worked out that way. I wasn’t going to force Fiance to pick my brother. Instead of being a groomsman, my brother is going to walk my mom down the aisle, since my dad is walking me down. That’s one way to handle it.

My brother is going to do the welcome speech for my Fiance, and be the MC.
If my Maid/Matron of Honor wasnt so wedding traditional, I would have him witness the marriage. I witnessed his and I really would love him to do mine… but everyone here is so weird about traditional weddings lol Im deffinately not!
There is (so I hear) a special part of the licence that you can have who ever you want to sign. I have no idea if its just in canada, or if its something you make yourself or what it is. But I guess its like having a bunch of witnesses.
why couldnt you have the siblings as the wedding party?
Do any of them play instruments? Is it a small wedding? If theres enough people some can be ushers.
Where is the wedding?
