So, due to my family dynamic I've said I don't want any ushers or 'special roles' in our wedding because my Brother and one sister and my Brother's oldest daughter won't have any 'special role' in the wedding. Presently FI and I each have 3 attendants (one of my Bridesmaids is my sister, one is my Brother's wife, the 3rd is my MOH - my best friend.)
We have 1 reader, who is an old friend of mine who is a Priest. It's a compromise for us because had he been our officiant he would have had to have used the ceremony from his church and that was too much God for FI. So we're using a Pastor FI grew up with in his neighborhood.
Now that that's out of the way - here's where my "what to do" comes in. We have a neighbor who we've grown pretty close to. He's become a pretty big staple in our lives. I jokingly said that should one of my BM's that's been pretty uncommunicative regarding the wedding drops out I'm asking Steve to be an attendant. Well, that got me thinking that really - I'd like him to be a part of our special day. We also keep joking that he's going to be my Mom's escort but I'd like for him to have an actual role in our day.
Can anyone think of something (other than usher or reader) that he could do?
