My very traditional mother is refusing to allow a male friend to be in my bridal party. I am have a very quirky wedding as it is (plantation house, Indian Jones music, Air Force tie-ins for my fiance) because we are fitting the wedding to our likes and personalities. Getting the music in has been like pulling teeth and I have had many arguements about this. She keeps suggesting girls I have not talked to in three years. Is there anyway someone can think of to convince her my best male friend can be on my side during the wedding? I cannot ask him without asking another friend (we are kind of a trio) so I would be taking two out with one shot. I really need some persuading words here.
