My male best friend is my man of honor :-). He’s gay, but he’s still not helping me get dressed, lol. I’m not sure what kind of advice you’re looking for, though. He’ll act like any other Maid/Matron of Honor. He helped plan my shower and bachelorette party, will hang out with me while I get ready, and he’ll make a speech at the reception. He’s been my best friend for nearly 20 years, there’s no one else I’d have in that role.

I have two best friends (who are also friends with each other) that I have known for 14+ years now (yikes! I’m old lol)

The lady BFF is my Maid/Matron of Honor, and the guy BFF is my “Bridesman.”  I initially was trying to think of other ways to incorporate him (readings, etc.), but then I decided that was ridiculous and unfair to keep him out of my bridal party just because he has a penis.  So bridesman it is!  He was actually the person with me when I found my dress, and has been a huge help.  He’ll be coming to the bachelorette too! (he’s gay and my fiance knows him well now, so no issues there).

My cousing had her brother as her “Man of Honor.” They are very close and it just fit that he would stand up next to her on the most special day of her life. No one thought it was strange. It’s your wedding, if you want to do it, do it!

I’m  having a Man of Honor as well.  He isn’t really involved with planning.  He is my sounding board when I need it though.  He lives in FL and I am in PA, so he can’t be really involved.  Though I know if he lived close he would be.  He will be giving a speech as well as the Best Man.  He will be doing most things a Maid/Matron of Honor does except planning the Shower.  He’s too far away for that.
