No I don’t think it is at all and good for you being supportive of his decision. If that’s what he wants thats what he can do. It’s just as much his day as yours and it will make him most happy to have the people he wants next to him family or not!

No, I think it should be the people you are closest to in your life. My Fiance is having his brother and one of my brothers, but he’s likely going to ask our close friend to be the Best Man because his brother doesn’t have the mental capacity to help with any of the planning/execute the responsibilities (lke holding onto the ring). Regardless, if he chose to have all friends and none of our brothers, I’d be supportive because it’s his decision who he wants to stand with him on that day.

PS – Can I just say I wish my Fiance had the problem yours does? It was like pulling teeth to get him to pick anyone without me holding his hand and suggesting mutual friends.

we are in sort of the same boat..my Fiance picked 3 guys then let me put my brother and my son in. He is not close with the male side of his family, he has a TON of cousins and 1 brother he disowned…..but i was very shocked when he didnt want anyone in his family to be part of the day besides his mother, as his family is sort of close and HUGE- when i have people on Both sides… he said its like what jocember said.. some of his friends are closer to him then his own family

I agree! I don’t see anything wrong with that! 🙂

I have my sister standing with me but no cousins I love them to death but I wanted the people I see every day standing with me not the ones I see once or twice a year (plus they are invited so they will be there just not for the prewedding bridesmaids only times)

It might be awkward if he DID pick brothers because he has 5! He would have to either have all 5 or none of them, and if he had all 5 that doesn’t leave much room for friends. I don’t htink it’s that weird.

I have my sister as a bridesmaid and not a Maid/Matron of Honor and a few people probably think i’m a horrible person but who cares! It works for us.
