I definately think your Darling Husband is just goinjg to have to deal with it. What harm is it to walk for 30 seconds with another man in front of a hundred other people? My Darling Husband was in a wedding last summer that I was not in, and I didn’t think about it for a second.

It’s perfectly normal for you to be escorted by the corresponding groomsman. There’s nothing romantic about it. Your husband will still be your date!

If seen plenty of wedding parties where there are BMs and GMs and their SO’s are not. There’s nothing wrong with it.

If you were going as a guest and she had ushers, you’d be escorted by an usher to your seat. Being escorted is not at all being “paired up” with someone. I think he probably just doesn’t understand the meaning of it – it’s to be polite to a lady when walking a distance in heels. Maybe put it in terms of another man opening a door for you? It’s just a tradition/polite, nothing to do with coupling.

Yeah i think he’s just going to have to get over it… I also wouldn’t mention this to your friend because it might stress her out. Hopefully he comes around!!

yes thats sounds quite unreasonable for your DH to think that.  Would you be upset if he had to walk down the aisle as a groomsman with an arm linked to a bridesmaid?

Out of curiousity, did he take this view with your attendants when you got married? I think he just needs to get over it.

LOL poor guy. I can see where he is coming from, he sounds a tad bit possessive. I’ve had to watch my guy go down the aisle with other girls and I seethe on the inside (GITAWAYFROMMYMANB*TCH!!!) LOL but I mean, it’s not like you’re going to meet up with the guy you are walking down the aisle with in a hotel room or back alley or anything lol. Just give your guy a kiss, maybe let him know you understand where he is coming from and reassure him that he’s your baby 😛 He will learn to deal!

Unless the groomsman escorting you is your ex whom you still have vivid fantasies about and have called out his name in your sleep or during sex, then your hubby needs to deal with it Smile

Sorry, but your husband is being silly! I’m sure he’ll get over it, think you’re just gonna tell him he pretty much HAS to get over it, not much of a choice there! lol

Has he not been to many weddings? Or just not noticed the pairings? In the deep south, it’s not uncommon for grooms to have their fathers as Best Man. Which means the groom’s father is usually escorting a young woman at least during the recessional. No one even blinks. Just how it’s done. If you weren’t a bridemaid, but just a guest, you’d be escorted to your seat on the arm of an usher, with your husband walking behind.

Was going to ask the same thing as above… how many weddings has he been to? Has he always assumed that the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen were dating at the time? It just so happens that everybody’s best friends dates each other? (I know this is an overexaggeration, I know he doesn’t believe that, but still!) I agree, sometimes it’s strange to walk down arm in arm with someone I just met, with an SO already sitting in his seat all alone. But the traditions of marriage isn’t going anywhere, and logistically it makes alot of sense! (Plus I really do appreciate the extra support when I’m in high heels! LOL)
