My maid of honor is a man? LoL….

Recommended Posts

 

So I need some honest opinions…

 

My best and closest friends are my 3 sisters and my friend Jon. Iâ€ve known Jon since we were kids and he is gay. I cannot choose one of my sisters over another to be a maid of honor and it seems most natural to me having Jon be my maid of honor. I have been tossing around the idea of having him as my maid of honor since my fiancé purposed 2 years ago. Iâ€ve even convinced my fiancé into going with it if thatâ€s what I decide to choose. My fiancé is totally supportive in whatever I choose. Itâ€s pretty much come down to the decision of him being my maid of honor or not having one.

 

Wedding wise we talked about what he would wear. My fiancé and I decided that if we do have him as maid of honor that he will wear the same outfit as the guys (itâ€s a beach wedding so they are wearing pants or shorts with probably a white button down polo or something. The only difference is that we will have Jonâ€s guy shirt be the same color as my bridesmaids dresses. So he will be wearing the guyâ€s outfit, but the girls colors.

 

Do you guys think that this all sounds too weird? Iâ€m not the conservative type by any means and it doesnâ€t feel weird to me. I just wanted some outside opinions before I make a final decision.

 

Also, I would still call him my “maid of honor†right? LoL, I donâ€t think there is a any other special title I can give him, is there?

 

Let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

GO FOR IT!!! It's not weird at all! Even if he wasn't gay. My sister was one of the "grooms men" in her good friend Adam's wedding. I'm alllll for it!!!!! I think it's great your FI supports it too! :)

I don't think it's weird at all! Choosing a MOH is a very special thing, and it should be who you feel fits that role. Who cares whether they are male/female/straight/gay. I would totally call him the MOH! Have fun and to hell with 'tradition', do it your way wink.gif

My DH had his sister as his "best woman!" It was a lot of fun and very fitting because she watched out for him when they were growing up. The groomsmen wore seersucker pants, so she found a blue seersucker dress. It was so cute! I think you should definitely ask him! Go for it! remember...it's your wedding!

Im doing the EXACT same thing! My best friend of 12 years is a man and is also gay. I have some close girlfriends but none can even compare to the friendship that we have shared so I really even think about it. He will be dressed exactly like the rest of the groomsmen but he will be on my side during the ceremony. I was actually surprised but I got no flack from any of my family or my FI's. apparently this is becoming much more common my mom even said that she was just at a wedding where the best man was the grooms female best friend. heck there was even a movie made about it lol

I don't think it's weird at all. It's really good that your FI is supportive of your decisions.

I'd definately do this, this guy is obviously very close to you and should be part of your day.

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
