I am sure it is fine and no one will think anything of it. We had more groomsmen than bridesmaids… one of the guys was a little weird about not having a bridesmaid he was paired with but it wasn’t a big deal. It sounds like that’s not even an issue you have to think about since all of your attendants are men anyway. 🙂

People can have as many or little to none on either side of the bridal party. There are no rules!

I don’t think giving ur Fi’s friend random task in a wedding is a way to “honor” him. As a guest, I would rather sit back and relax & enjoy the celebration. Ask him to help only if you need to ask some1 to help anyway & if he’s the best candidate. Don’t ask only because u want him to feel honored. If he’s happy to be a groomsmen, ask him to be a groomsmen. One may even argue that being in the bridal party is such a huge responsibility that it’s far from being “honored” but I digress. If he doesn’t want to be a groomsmen, he can also be involved like in other aspects like “reading something at your ceremony” & planning a bachelor’s party!
