I need to do that!
I was like umm hello we talked about this and decided that we weren't having a wedding party.... he looked at my like I had ten heads and said " I don't know what that is but of course my brother is my best man" HAHAHa
Sooo .... no biggy - I will ask my best friend (who is already coming to the wedding) to be my MOH .... When I told her we were getting married I told her that I we probably weren't doing a wedding party but if we were she would be my MOH.
So my "OMG" moment about this is - of course I can't just call them be like - oh btw we changed our minds will you be my BM/MOH - I need to do something special.
My thought for his brother is to figure out what his favorite drink is and get a bottle of that with a custom flask - or something like that!
Not sure about my friend yet.
Did you girls do anything fun when you asked your friends/family to be in your wedding?
So I found this - I really like it.... I would do this and a bottle of his favorite liquor.
I would engrave it with something. I just told my FI what I came up with. He likes the decanter but not the wording.
The first friend I ever had
I'm proud to call you
I'd be honored
to call you my
He said he didn't really like the "first friend" part and it's too mushy (him and his brother are not mushy lovey with each other) so he wants it to be more "manly and brotherly"
