I like the idea but I would ask a few of the brothers first to see if they’re interested in actually wearing them before spending time and money making them.

Are these supposed to be for the brothers not in the wedding party?  If so, I wouldn’t do that.  I get that you want to honor them, but I think it’d be a little rude to single them out from the rest of your guests.  If you want to do something, I’d either play a special song or get a group picture.  I’m in a fraternity too (co-ed) and all I plan to do is have a group shot with all of the brothers and then play the 2 songs that were always played at our parties. 

You could also have your Fiance wear a bout. with the fraternity colors or get him cufflinks or socks or put a charm on your bouquet.  That why you can still have something from the fraternity there, but you aren’t singling people out.

Oh!  I just remembered that our franternity has a pin!  Does your FI’s fraternity have one?  Maybe you could ask them all to wear their pins.  That why they are still recoganized, but it’s not in a way that would make other guests feel excluded.  And it wouldn’t cost you anything!

I personally love this idea, I agree with a PP.. but instead I would just talk to my Fiance about and see what he thinks then surprise the guys the day of!

Maybe get them personalized beer koozies or something for the day of? That would be neat too..  If you’re allowed glass bottles used and not cups.
