I really want think my BEST MAN should be my ‘thick & thin’ buddy since college.
A fellow I have much history with.
However, my little brother who got married before me chose me as his best man when he got married.
Should I reciprocate & keep it in the family or just go with whoever I feel is best qualified?
Not sure what the etiquette here is.

would your brother be offended? my sister told me flat out that she didn’t mind not being Maid/Matron of Honor and that if she wasn’t a bridesmaid that was ok too!

Duh – why didn’t I think of that?! So modern.
However, for argument sake, if I had to choose 1 only? Thoughts?

My FI’s brother was married and had my Fiance as the best man, but for our wedding, he’s not even part of the wedding party and it doesn’t bother him at all. I think with everything being so non-traditional/modern now days, it makes almost anything acceptable. So if you rather not have your brother as the Best Man I think it’s perfectly okay.

I don’t think it’s required. If you truly have a best friend who isn’t your brother, you can choose him.
My best friend has a sister, but she still plans on choosing me to be her Maid of Honor when she gets married.
