*A close friend of mine is engaged and tells me personally to be his best man. I'm very happy.

*Few weeks later today, he emails all the guys friends and says everyone is his 'best man'

*I try my hardest to help him plan his wedding. He's quite grateful.

*Now I feel like I've been cheated on my 'title'. It's very like him to be doing this too. He's non-confrontional and likes to avoid drama.

*I have absolutely no problem him picking multiple best man (if there is such a thing). Then why the hell did he pull my chain by personally asking me first only to not go through all the way?

How would you feel?

you probably know your best friend a lot more than the rest, and you shouldn't be all that surprised. Just play along for the sake of his wedding.

Well at least now it won't be your sole responsibility to plan and throw his Bachelor Party. You also can avoid the toast at the reception.

Umm from the sounds of it, it's seems that you will still be the best man who's next to him at the altar, etc. There's only one best man no?

Too bad I wanted to do all these.

Who cares if you aren't the only best man. It's your friends day, not yours.

That's why I posted. This is how you'd feel honestly? Just shrug it off? You can't help what you feel.

I wouldn't have done it that way but I'm less than 5mos from getting married and it's a little hectic dealing with it all. The day is not about you (I've quickly discovered it's about the bride ;)) so let your feelings go if he is truly a good friend. After all, it might not have been his decision...

Not gonna lie - My first reaction was that is crap.

But I don't know the guy. I can't think of any friends that would do that so it might be harder for me to accept.

Either way - It is his wedding and if you are there to help, just help the guy out. He only gets married once (or should).
