comment What's the order of importance of Honorees under a Chuppa?
Singing various piyutim under the chuppah can also be a Kibbud, if the Mechubad is capable.

comment Israeli making pizza on last day of Pesach in the Diaspora
Actually it says the brother can't eat the pizza. It doesn't say he can't own it. Furthermore it would be nice if you could address the possibility that Amira leNochri could be used by the brother to get workers to come bake the pizza. There's no maras ayin there, likely.

Some Mesadrei Kiddushin have an assistant to hold the various cups and cards. This can sometimes be given as an independant Kibbud as well.

Some split Brachot 1 and 2 between two honorees, and others give all 7 to the same honoree. Some also have more than 2 witnesses for any given witnessing.

Is this limited to "under a chuppa"? I would consider Eidei Ketuba, Eidei Bedekin and Eidei Yichud to be big kibbudim too. (Eidei Tenaim and reader of Tenaim exist too, but I don't think it's really such an honor to do something irrelevant.) (Note some actually have the Eidei Ketuba sign under the chuppah and still others have them come up and properly witness the passing of the Ketuba to the bride)

Do you want us to edit in more options to the list? (which you say is incomplete)

@Tatpurusha The OP is clearly working under the assumption that the brothers' rabbi(s) holds that he wouldn't have to.

comment Why does Jewish law and tradition specify times for saying Shema?
@BinyominTrager Are you kidding? That's not what he says! He says you didn't fulfill the Mitzva of reading it during its time.

Lashon Hara is not the only reason you can get Tzaraat (a common misconception).

comment What is the original halachic source for a woman covering her collarbones out of modesty (tznius)?
Ahhh most peculiar. The Kaf haChayim seems to have had a different version of the Tiferet Shemuel than we do.

comment What is the original halachic source for a woman covering her collarbones out of modesty (tznius)?
@Alex Are you sure that's what he means? He says: ודבר שרגיל להיות מכוסה באשה וכו': פי' לאפוקי מה שדרך נשים להיות מגולה כגון הפנים והצואר וידים אבל נראה בעיני במיקל שרגילות הנשים לגלות זרועותיהם ורגילין להיות פתוח עד סמוך לדדיה זהו מנהג רע וקורא אני בהם חקים לא טובים וטפח באשה ערוה. He's talking about sleeves that are so short they risk exposing the breast from the side.
