- Wedding: November 2012
During a conversation about my FI’s groomsman, my Fiance suggested that he ask my dad to be a groomsman. While I first thought this was a sweet gesture I began to wonder this was common or acceptable. My next thought was, “Oh great. Now my mother will expect to be a bridesmaid” (…seriously, she will). I worry because my parents are divorced and my mother has ALWAYS “kept score” with things that we do with my father and his family vs. her and her family. But this was ENTIRELY my FI’s idea, not mine. And, I guess with my family, I just expect petty drama, so I can get over her issues with the whole thing, I guess.
But, getting back to my initial question: is it weird if the bride’s father is in the groom’s party?
