I think it would be lovely to have them stand with you!

I think it’s a great idea. I plan on having my brother stand up as my man of honor as long as he can make it.

I think it’s a GREAT IDEA. You should totally have either or both stand for you.  If it were me I would lean more towards my brother than my mother, but that’s my family dynamics.  I feel like the MOB has her own “special role” already so I would ask my brother.  Sorry for your Maid/Matron of Honor not being able to make it, that stinks.

Southern grooms often have their dads as Best Man, so I see no reason why your mom and/or brother couldn’t stand up with you! I think it would be sweet.

I know a few people who have had their mom as their matron of honor! I think its sweet 🙂 If you ask your brother, you can ask him to be your Man of Honor (which would be different from the Best Man, if your Fiance is having one)!

i think it would be lovely for your mother or your brother.  i am sure either would be honoured.  i had my 27 yr old son as my man of honour and my husband had his sister (only sibling) as his best woman.

My brother is my man of honor! He’s my best friend and I couldn’t imagine anyone else up there with me! Bonus? He’s actually been incredibly helpful and involved throughout the planning process, which I wasn’t necessarily expecting!

I think it sounds really sweet! I mean who would be better to stand by your side that your own mother, who is really the only person in this world who would do absolutely anything for you.
