    Number 2 for sure. I'm a big believer in your wedding, your choices x

    I would choose option 2, just because that's who you really want to be standing next to DH on the day. You could always say to option 1 that although there's only going to be one groomsman/best man, it would mean a lot to you if he would help plan the Bucks do or something.
    And if you decided to choose BIL, you could put up a nice marquee or something to be married under to protect him?

    With the burns scarring, there is a lot to his face and head- the top of his head is particularly bad. I'm not 100% certain but I'm pretty sure that he can't be outdoors without a hat and full sleeve shirt at any time of the year. Of course if he wanted to wear a nice hat I suppose that would be ok...
    Gah. I think you're right, I am thinking too much into things.
    Df started it though! He told me he wanted number two but felt obliged to ask number one!

    I don't think you're over anlaysing at all , my dh would think so, but I would be exactly the same as your df, feeling I was obligated to have the friend that had me. But, I think your df should have who he wants, not who he feels he is obligated to have. It's definitely a toughie!

    We had none, it was great, I had so many I could have chosen, DH doesn't have many close mates... The best part was the photos where all about us & we got to spend some quality time alone on such a stressful & busy day.

    In your case I'd go number 2, but thought I would had that as food for thought :-)

    It's tempting but I've already asked my sister and she is so excited... I would feel like a real douche saying we've changed our mind!

    Number 2.

    I had 3 bridesmaids. 2 of 3 have since gotten married and I wasn't in either of their bridal parties.

    I was disappointed but not upset or annoyed or angry, I just understood that they had other constraints and situations and people to think of. I would have hated to be in their bridal party out of obligation. Their wedding, their choice.

    Same with you, your wedding your choice. Stuff everyone else. If someone gets upset - their issue. If it ruins a relationship, then it wasn't a strong friendship to begin with and do you really want them in your lives?

    Number 2.

    We had one attendant each at our wedding. DH asked another good mate (that he had been a groomsman for) to be the MC instead of having a second attendant.

    Could you ask #1 to do a reading?
