You could ask him to be an usher and do a reading at the ceremony

My brother stood with me as a Bridesman. You could also think about having him do a reading or say a prayer.

What if he married you?  He could get ordained.

My brothers will be our ushers and MCs. His sister is doing a reading.  So maybe one of those options?

Is it the same brother of the gf you are including as a bridesmaid? Are you close, or including her because of the connection to your brother? You could have him in your bridal party. I have been to several weddings where a close male friend has been in the bridal party with bridesmaids.

Ifyou do still want to have the gf as bridesmaid though, go with one of the other ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

pswtec:  my favorite idea! One of our close friends is doing this, it takes two seconds to get ordained online and it’s free. Go to universal life church

MissMonie:  we are not having a bridal party at all. But we are having my brother and my FIs sister be our witnesses for our marriage license. Which they will be signing after the ceremony. So you could maybe choose his sister and your brother to do this. 

Or have him hold the rings if you do not have a ring barrer. He could sit with your parents in the normal seats and bring them up when you need the rings. (My other brother will be doing this.lol)

Usher ๐Ÿ™‚

Or a reading, prayer, any other portion of the ceremony.

My brothers are going to be ushers. I don’t want anyone actually ushered, but I’m going to have them dress to match the groomsmen and hand out the programs/ greet people, then hand out the confetti after. I’m also going to include them in the wedding photos.

We had my brother and one of DHs brother pass out the programs and act as ushers. DHs other brother did a reading. He also asked the usher brother to lead the prayer. You can always ask whoever is marrying you for a suggestion in case their are any other roles they may think of…
