Wedding Party: Brother as a Bridesmaid?


My fiancé and I want just one wedding attendant for each of us. My only sibling is my brother, but he's the person closest to me. What can I do?


Tell your brother to put on his best duds, run a comb through his hair, and stand up there with you. There's no law that says you must follow gender lines at your wedding; we're all for appointing brides-men, grooms-women, a man of honor, and a best woman. As far as attire goes, you can either have your brother coordinate with the best man's ensemble, or he can adopt a style all his own. If you have a particular color scheme, suggest that he wear a tie, shirt, or pocket square in a coordinating color, and outfit him with a bloom for his boutonniere that's found in your bouquet.
