Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
Yes we went there!
One of our close friends, named B, is a groomswoman. She and my FH met in undergrad and they have remained friends long after graduation. Our groomswoman and I have been friends for a few years, but not nearly as long as FH and she have been acquainted. She is an awesome, funny, smart, talented, and creative person.
We really wanted her apart of our wedding party. So we asked B if she'd do us the honor of joining the bridal party. It was more fitting for her to be a groomswoman because she was more apart of the pack of guys and friends from FH college days. FH and I asked her if she wouldn't mind being a groomswoman. She gladly accepted.
B was fitted for a tux and accessorized at Men's Warehouse with FH and the groomsmen on the day that they all went together. It was her choice to wear a tuxedo. We told her if she wanted to wear a dress it was fine, but B said she'd feel more comfortable in a tux and being apart of the wedding party as a groomswoman.
This is apart of what FH and I love about her: her loyalty, friendship, and most of all her comfort with who she is. B is a beautiful person. We are so glad to have her in our wedding party as a groomswoman.
My question is this: How do you feel about the crossover roles of groomswomen and bridesmen? Is it too non-tradional? Is it morally offensive? Taboo? Acceptable? New? What do you think? Thoughts?
