I vote for BridesMan!   …and I think it’s a fantastic idea!

Agreed – if he is your really good friend, he should be standing up with you!

Bridesman sounds perfect! Which does he prefer?

Yeah I would just ask HIM where he feels more comfortable.

I think at least half the weddings I’ve been to have had a bridesman.  Sometimes standing with the guys, sometimes on the bride’s side (one wedding had a man of honor on and a best woman and that was the whole wedding party).  Either way, it was fine.

My very close guy friend will be a Bridesman and The Guy’s very close female friend will be a Groomswoman. It’s your wedding — play by your own rules!

I have a Bridesman amongst the girls… and he’s not gay either, just a close friend. Do what you want!

I had a bridesman, he stood on my side and walked down with a bridesmaid. He dressed the same as the groomsmen. Personally I think it would be more awkward to have *your* friend standing next to your Fiance, unless they were equally good friends. It’s not about gender but about friendship ๐Ÿ™‚

My brother is my man of honor and my FI’s sister is a groomswoman…His sister will wear the same dress as the bridesmaids and my brother is getting a suit to match the Groomsmen.

I don’t think it’s awkward at all. I’d just talk it over with your friend and find out what he is comfortable with — for example, my brother is not planning my bachelorette party even though he’s my man of honor.
