- Wedding: March 2014
Okay standard disclaimer that I’m not engaged yet, but we were looking for a tux shirt for him today and there were tons of couples picking tux options for their groomsmen today and Boyfriend or Best Friend and I started talking about bridal parties. So I’ve not really started “planning” — waiting until I get that ring on my finger — but I have known since, oh, college who I wanted standing next to me when I get married — in essence, my female best friend as my matron of honor, my male best friend as my man of honor, 2 other close girl friends from college and then my brother and sister in law (after being a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding I found it weird standing on my SIL side instead of my bro’s with my parents, so I think they should be on my side and BF’s sister and BIL should be on his). Anyways, the discussion led to this: Boyfriend or Best Friend doesn’t want any groomsmen. He’s okay with having his sister and BIL, but basically doesn’t want anyone else. “I already feel bad for making people come to a wedding, let alone rent a tux.”
So, keeping in mind that I don’t want to break that “not engaged” planning line, this is driving me crazy. Is it going to look like he has no friends if I have 4 friends plus my bro and sister in law and he only has his sister and BIL?
I can’t imagine getting ready for my wedding without my best friends (the 4 people I want as my attendants) let alone all the other planning and things. I loved being the Maid/Matron of Honor in my best friend’s wedding and I can’t wait for her to be mine.
So, what would you do Bees?
