I don’t know… it seems to me he should get to be a groomsman if the 21 and 19-yr old get to be groomsmen. I also thought the groom made decisions about who the groomsmen would be, but maybe y’all are doing it all together.

Why exactly do you not want a 16 yr old in the wedding party? He could always skip the bachelor party, or whatever else isn’t convenient for a teenage guy. Are you worried about the pictures looking weird?

We had three under-21s in our wedding party (DH’s brother, age 19, my sister, age 20, and my other sister, age 11). It was actually really convenient because they drove their cars to/from the reception, and the rest of the wedding party rode with them and didn’t have to worry about drinking at the reception. I just couldn’t imagine not having my sisters as bridesmaids, ever the littlest one!

you could get him to do a reading during the ceremony.  Your groom really should have the final say as to who the groomsmen are
