    My wedding is coming closer and my mind has been changing about the bridal party everyday. My FI has picked his best friend as his best man. Many of my gfs can't afford to go. At first I thought of having one grooms man and one bridesmaid. Now I feel like I want my 2 brothers to stand with me. My FI doesn't mind having them stand on his side since they are also friends. Should I feel obligated to have my FI sister be on my side? I'm not close to her nor talk to her that often. She has a 2 year old which will be my ring bearer. So now, I have to find more girls to be on my side because I want to add my 2 brothers. I asked him if my brothers can stand with me and he picks one more GM but my FI sticks with bridesmaid should be girls. Should I add my brothers to the bridal party? Should I have his sister be part of it? Any input is appreciated.

    There's a few of us on here who are having a guy stand up for us. I have 2 girls as my co-MOH's and 1 man as my "Man of Honor". The way I look at it is I have been friends with all 3 of these people for 16-20 years and consider them to be my best friends (one is no more important than the other). I think if you want your 2 brothers to stand up for you, they should do just that... stand up for YOU! :) Maybe have another talk with FI about it, you can even show him this site where there are other girls who are having guys stand up for them. It sounds very nontraditional, and is, but its becoming more and more "normal". I have a friend who has been at 2 weddings over the last couple years where the bride had men on her side of the wedding party. 


    But if he still will not budge on the idea, I do not think you are obligated to have his sister be part of it, especially if you are not really close. If your FI is really against it, then maybe have him be the one that explains it to his sister if she asks? At the end, do what YOU feel is right!
