Well if your Fiance is comfortable with hanging out with him and having him around I don’t understand why it would be a big deal. Plus it’s about people who care about you and who you care about, so if you want him in the wedding he should be! My FI’s bestman and I knew each other before Fiance and I knew each other and Fiance thought his best man and I were dating before we got together which we weren’t. Now it’s just a funny story.

I love it.  I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.  I was considering this for a close male friend as well.

My best friend was origianally going to be my Man of Honor, but he didn’t want to do it, so then he was Head Usher. Finally, he ended up being a Groomsman and Head Usher. He loved it and I was happy he could be a part of so much. McHusband loves my best friend almost as much as I do, so they’re super tight friends too. I don’t know if that helps, but it’s what we did.

One of my best friends is a guy. To top it off, he was my first boyfriend in high school and we dated two years. He was going to be a groomsmen, but my fiance has so many friends that I didn’t feel right kicking out one of his friends to include my friend. So he’s an usher.

I don’t see why he has to stand on your FI’s side and I don’t think you should ask your Fiance to ask him to stand on his side.  I think he should stand on YOUR side.  It doesn’t have to be all boys and girls separated.  I have my best friend on my side and he’s a guy.

My best friend from high school is a guy and he’s being my Man of Honor.  I was one of his groomsmen a few years ago.  

I also don’t believe in splitting up boys on one side and girls on the other.  They should stand with you as meaning is more important than symmetry.

You sound like me and when my Maid/Matron of Honor almost had to drop out, I almost asked him… I say do it if you want too!
