My Fiance is having 6 groomsmen. I have 5 bridesmaid and I have this guy friend who is quite literally my best friend (Other than Mr. Waiting of course) him and Maid/Matron of Honor are dating (both of them are 2 of my best friends in the entire world and they just started dating after the 3 of us being 3 musketeers for the last 3 years.) I would love to include him in my wedding but we already have too many groomsmen. I just think it would be the perfect fitting for him to be right next to me and my Maid/Matron of Honor because he has been there for everysingle thing in our lives and I would love him to be part of my special day. When I tell people about it…it is unheard of. Do you know anyone who has done this?

I think you can do it. If my fiancé couldn’t fit my brother in, I would hav put him in my bridal party.

I think you should do it. Don’t even tell people that’s your plan if you’ll feel bad if they question it. My SIL had her brother as her “Man of Honor” and it was great.

I have a Maid/Matron of Honor so he would just be a bridesman,..Im not ashamed at all just kinda thrown back that people have hard opinions on this I guess. He is my best friend and I am having a girl I barely talk to in my bridal party…why wouldnt I have my best friend too just because he is a man.

I had my three brothers as bridesmen! I loved that I had them on my side. I had them coordinate with the groomsmen.

I would say go for it. I wouldn’t mention that it wasn’t the first choice, just say that’s your choice and everyone will have to get over it

I’ve always found the bridesman/groomsmaid thing weird. A friend of mine had his sisters stand with him and it just seemed weird to me. I understand why people want to do it but I personally don’t like it.

I say go for it! It’s your wedding and you should be standing up there with the people who love you most and who you love most!

I think you should go for it! Wedding parties are about who is important to you, not about gender 🙂

Do it, and have him wear a suit that’s the same color as your bridesmaids so he’ll match. Because that would be awesome. Or silly. You probably shouldn’t take my advice on that part lol

I had a man of honor, so I don’t see why not.

I think having a bridesman is a really cool idea.

I will be having a bridesman. My SO thinks it’s odd though, so he’ll be standing with the groomsmen.

Do it! It’s becoming more common now. If the bridesmaid side of my wedding didn’t already have more than the groomsmen, my best male friend would be up there with me too.
