Today’s post is part of an ongoing Wedding Wednesday Series. My chance to ramble on about non-running, wedding related stuff.
As you may have guessed, if you know me IRL (in real life)- I’m probably going to do things a bit differently than most when it comes to my Bridal Party.
I’m not worried about our sides matching, number wise or even gender-wise for that matter.
Because see, my mom birthed me a brother many many years ago. And well, though he is one of my best friends he will never be my sister. But that shouldn’t make him in-eligable for standing right there next me with my girls. Right?
So I asked my brother to be my bridesman.
Now in explaining this situation to some people, I get really confused looks. Oh, you mean your brother is in your wedding, but he is standing on J Alabama’s side.
Umm… no. He is one of my bridesmaids…sort of.
Honestly, the bro is getting a kick out of his new title as Bridesman. I am just honored and excited to have him up there on my side.
Now the way this will work, is that his attire will be similar to what the Groomsmen are wearing, though his tie will match the bridesmaid dresses.
His Bridesman duties are as follows:
- Mimosa Duty (from now until the wedding)
- To provide comic relief to me and the groom and the other maids whenever needed
- Cake Toppers (which are freaking AMAZING)
- Engagement Photos
Yeah, as you can tell he has some pretty important duties. But most importantly he will be there beside me supporting me into the next stage of my life.
What other non-traditional wedding things/ideas have you ever witnessed?
I’m all for making this wedding as unique and tailored to J. Alabama and I as possible. I got the idea of the bridesman when we saw a Groomsmaid at a fraternity wedding. The guys’ sister wore black and stood on the Groomsmen side. My brother and I knew at that very moment that he would someday be a bridesman, and he was more than okay with it!
