    I really wish that adults could just act like adults and not get their panties in a wad because they weren’t asked to be in someone’s wedding party.

    I think the best path forward is that one should ask those that they are close to, to be in their wedding.  If that means one brother is a groomsman and another brother is just a guest then so be it.  Just because you are related doesn’t automatically mean that you are entitled to be in the wedding party.

    My general idea is to ask people who’d want to play dress up with me, enjoy/tolerate taking photos and spending extra time with us, and who wouldn’t mind doing public things like walking awkwardly down aisles, and potentially dancing or giving a speech!

    And then after I work out that list, I plan to ask people who might be hurt to not be included (because it’s important to them) and who I actually care about not hurting. This is a difficult one, because sometimes people you care about are just not the most rational or understanding people themselves. But if I care enough about them not getting hurt, I’ll try to accommodate them as best I could.
