I am asking a few girlfriends to be bridesmaids in my wedding, but my best friend is a guy. Can I have a male maid of honor?

Answer, by KB

There is no wedding etiquette rule that says the bride’s attendants must be female. Your maid (or man) of honor should be the person you trust most with this very important role. Remember Carrie as Stanford’s best man in Sex and The City 2? She looked fabulous in a tux. This doesn’t mean your man of honor should have to wear a bridesmaid dress, but have a little fun with it. You’ll be glad to have your best friend standing next to you on this very important occasion. In the end, that’s all that matters.
