My best friend is male and I've asked him to be my "Man of Honour" with my sister and cousins as bridesmaids. Has anyone had a guy in their bridal party before? He's pretty on top of things like the hen do, and is happy to get involved in everything I ask. I'm planning on having him in a suit similar to the groomsmen but perhaps a different tie. Or has anyone any other ideas? I want him to feel completely included. Also any ideas for a gift would be hugely appreciated.
I'm having a bridesman he is going to be in a kilt to match bridesmaids dresses colour. He is delighted to be involved and I can't imagine my day without him there! I've got part of their gifts so far and seen fun mr men n little miss mugs, we all love a good cuppa and thought it was something a different that they could use everyday 😀
My bridesman wore grey trousers and grey waistcoat with tie the same colour as the grooms cravat. It was obvious he was in the wedding party but different enough that he didn't look like he was on the groom's side (they wore ivory waistcoats and grey tails). I gave all bridesmaids gift bags, replaced girls bracelets for cufflinks and champagne glasses with tankard.
I had a bridesman and he wore the same as both our fathers and husbands usher ( my husband and best man wore their uniforms) and it worked out perfectly as he just escorted my bridesmaid down the aisle.
I'm having two best men and my wife to be is having a best man also. The boys are wearing suits with bow ties to match the bridesmaids x
My brother is a "bridesman" he'll be wearing different colour suit with tie matching the other boys. But I think the other way around that you suggested would work too! :) x
I'm having a maid of honour and my brother is my man of honour, my other half is having two best men. My brother is wearing a suit of his choice but the same tie as the best men and my dad
My husband had his sister as his best woman we just got her dress too match the kilts the rest of the bridal party were wearing it looked lovely. Xx

I had my male best friend in a suit same as groomsmen it was just a shade lighter, matching tie with my bridesmaids x
My best friend was a bridesman, he wore the same as the ushers. He didn't want to be different to the other men as he didn't want to stand out. It worked great xx
My 2 best friends are male and are both 'men of honour' they are in matching suits the same as the groomsmen! 😁
I had a bridesman and he wore exactly the same as the groomsmen
My partner's best friend is going to be a bridesmaids. She'll be dressed same as other bridesmaids.
