anyone else having a male best friend as their MOH? i thought about this long and hard but there is no one else in the world that I could imagine by my side through all of this. my gay best friend since early middle school has been the biggest help, and has such great taste and style! I know some of my family, including my dad, will probably not agree with this decision because it is not “tradition” but I know it is what will make ME happy!
just wondering is anyone else is in the same boat?! feel free to leave your thoughts!!!

I have two best friends, and decided that I didn’t want to pick between them- so I have a matron of honour and a man of honour. Even though it wasn’t traditional, and I’m sure that some of our family members raised their eyebrows about it, I don’t care! You’re totally right, it’s about what makes you happy!!

My SIL had her brother as her “Man of Honor” when she and my brother got married, and I’ve been to other weddings where there was a Man of Honor. The part that is “tradition” is that you have your best friend stand up with you when you get married, and while for women that is OFTEN their best girl friend, there is no reason it can’t be your best guy friend. Absolutely, go for it.

<address>I’ve been to a wedding where the brides brother was her Maid/Matron of Honor. He walked their Mother down the aisle before the bridesmaids and then stood at the front with the groom (but on the brides side).</address><address> </address><address>His speech was quite literally the best speech I have ever heard at a wedding</address>

We had just our siblings in our wedding. My brothers and sister were on my side and his brothers and sisters were on his side. I am really close to one of my brothers, we have always been very similar. He was my “best man” and I am SO glad we did it that way. Everyone thought it was really sweet! The people standing up with you should be the people closest to you, not the group of people that look best up there or are a certain sex. Have your best friend standing by you for your important and special day! You will always regret it if you dont!
