I don’t think that should be an issue at all. I wasn’t aware that it was customary that the Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor sign the license. My mother signed our license since we only needed 1 signature. I wouldn’t think they would take any offense at all especially if you let them know before hand who you would like to sign and why.

We didn’t need anyone to sign as a witness, just our officiant signed. However, I don’t think it’d be a problem if you had your brothers sign instead of your Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man. You don’t have to make a big deal about the signing, just casually ask your brothers to come over and sign. Chances are, your Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor have no idea they’re “supposed to” be the witnesses.

@Cheeks11: I agree. They will understand the reasoning behind what you want. That is why they are you Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor and they should know you better than anyone and respect your feelings on the subject

I didn’t know that it was a customary either.
