I’m an only, but I’m pretty sure FI’s brother will be his best man, and his sister will definitely be a bridesmaid.

Does that count as an answer? 🙂

My twin sister is my Maid of Honor and my brother is walking me down the aisle, just like Miss Lab.

My twin brother was a groomsman.  Regretfully, DH’s 2 brothers and sister did not want to be part of the wedding party when asked.  In the end, two of them agreed to light candles before the start of our ceremony.  I have pictures of each of them.  The third has told us that he regrets not being involved – but it was due to his very strange and clingy life partner who claimed she did not want to be left alone while he did "groomsmen activities" or "got up to light candles".  Weird, I know.

  • Wedding: February 2009

After years of family drama which I won’t bore you all on the details, my brother re-emerged with his two wonderful daughters (one of which I had never even met).  We were very distant while I was growing up because he is 13 years older than me (among other reasons). 

I thought the wedding would be a great way to reconcile and mend a broken relationship, so my brother was an usher and he also brought up the gifts for communion with his SO.  His daughters were my flower girl and junior bm.  It was a great time and we have a much better relationship.

My brother is going to be an usher and my step-sister will read scripture during the ceremony.  Fiance has two brothers, but only one is able to be a groomsman.  Sadly, his other brother may not be able to attend our wedding.

We’re having a super-small wedding and no bridal party.  Actually the people that would have been our bridal party are the only non-family guests we’ve invited.  We decided to have my brother and FI’s sister each give a reading during our ceremony.

Since we had a VERY small wedding and no wedding party, I asked my brother to hold our rings. Not as a ring bearer (he’s 19 and would KILL me if I called him that, LoL). When the officiant asked for the rings my brother got up from his seat and handed our rings to the officiant.
