As more and more people are proving, men standing on one side of the soon-to-be married couple and women standing on the other is sooo yesterday.

In the past year, she said she’s seen a “huge increase” in non-gendered wedding parties.

“Instead of choosing people [for their wedding parties] based on gender, people are choosing people based on their relationships to them,” Glantz said. “The rule that men have to just be groomsmen and female friends have to just be bridesmaids has gone out the door.”

It’s about time, right? And in case you haven’t been to a wedding with groomswomen or bridesmen, here are some people who have — and who have participated in the new marital tradition non-tradition.

Bridesman Duties: Everything Your Man of Honor Needs to Know .
How to include a dude in the bridal party without feeling like one of the girlsWhile the bridal shower and bachelorette party are traditionally women-only events, that doesn’t mean your bridesman has to get the boot. Instead, make sure the event is something where he’ll feel welcome. That means skipping the lingerie shower in favor of an indulgent cooking class or an afternoon of wine tasting, and probably going easy on the genitalia paraphernalia at your bachelorette party. If there are both bridesmen and groomswomen in the mix, consider skipping the separate parties altogether, and have a co-ed shower and a joint bachelor and bachelorette outing.
