I wouldn’t say anything…sounds like his cousins FI(that’s the one you were talking too, right? Lol)  might have been mistaken as well, seeing on how your Fiance hasn’t been asked yet. Did I understand the problem correctly? Lol

Are you very close to her?  Can you just privately speak to her and ask her if she mentioned the situation to her Fiance, and that you found out that your Fiance is choosing other guys??  If not, you probably should suck it up and tell your Fiance that you flubbed and that his cousin might be under the impression he’ll be chosen… if your Fiance is closer to his cousin than you are with his girlfriend, your Fiance may be able to smooth things out better.  Either way, I don’t think you need to make up a position for them just because you made a mistake!

I would say and do nothing. 

Dont have people do special things.  Theyre either in the wedding party or theyre not.  Its not really an honour to help you do things on the day- sorry! lol but its not.  If they offer to help, then thats great, otherwise just leave it be.

Since you said *you thought* Fiance would ask his cousins, I don’t think you need to worry. It’s been at least 4 months, cousin hasn’t heard anything, so I think cousin and his fiance have worked out that you thought wrong.

If you had said that for certain cousin was going to be a Groomsmen, then I think an apology/correction would be in order. But you didn’t say that.
