DH not asked to wear the Wedding Outfit - I think it's a bit mean/thoughtless ?

BIL is getting married at the weekend & I've just found out their dad is wearing the wedding suit...my DH (his brother) hasn't been asked. Of course, being a male, he says he's not bothered..
BUT I AM!!! I don't like the fact that he's been left out/not included.
Am I being silly ?

Well - MIL told us we had to have BIL as bestman as they were brothers - he let us down 2 weeks before the wedding saying he was shy of the speech - so we had to eat humble pie with bestfriend and ask him - he was first choice anyway. - I had all gifts engraved and everything - was not happy!
The when BIl got married DH was just an usher as SIL has her best friend as bridesmaid and her partner as bestman - made for lovely photos as they were a nice foursome I'm sure!!
Not so angry with SIL anymore, just cross with MIL for interfering and causing bad feeling between us for a while!
Make sure your BIL is not just going along with his DF wishes for an easy life and is oblivious to the fact his brother has been left out of the suit thing!

Unless he's an usher or best man, no he shouldn't wear it. And if he did, everyone would assume he was part of the wedding party, and ask him for orders of service, directions to the reception, where the loos are etc... I'm not surprised he's not bothered!

BIL wore the outfit at our wedding,just for the sake of being included - he didn't do anything (he never does !)
Yeah, I guess I'm being silly - I just feel he's being left out - I like everyone to be included & so I (wrongly) assume everyone else feels the same.
