Past & Present Brides: No Bridal Party

Recommended Posts

We are only having a MOH and a BM. The MOH is my sister and the BM is his best friend. My mom was complaining b/c we were not going to have a large BP including a flower girl and a ring bearer. I have just explained to her that this is our wedding and this is how we would like to do things. It is your wedding, and you should do what is going to make the two of you happy! Good luck!!!

I'm not having a bridal party no one is going with us to Jamaica either. We decided to be selfish and have the week to ourselves and not entertain anyone. It is a second marriage for both of us and we each have children so that would also create problems and the cost would be crazy.

 

I have a very good friend that was hinting to go with us but I had to stick to our original plan and say no. We will have lots of pictures to show everyone so hopefully they will understand.

 

Do what makes you happy and not what others want because it is your day.

We did not have a bridal party. My FI's son stood up there with us and the other couple that went with us signed the certificate but that was about it. Do what you want. It is your wedding. Good luck!

Thank you so much everyone for responding. I feel a lot better. I think I'm going to stick with my plan. We'll either give the rings to the officiant or I like the idea to wear it on my thumb. i never thought of that, lol. Thanks guys.

We didn't have a bridal party either and it worked out just fine....we wanted it that way... or else I would have had more BM than he would have had GM...so it worked out better this way

About the witness....they told us that they could have two people from the resort but then we ended up having a legal ceremony here prior to going and just a symbolic ceremony in Mexico so it wasn't an issue...but just a suggestion that you could ask your WC if your resort could supply the

witness

And then the rings, we gave them to our WC prior to our ceremony and we had them in ....well it's just easier to show you....so here's a pic what we had the rings in....there was a little bit of sand in it with the rings sitting on top of the sand and the box was sitting on the ceremony table already when we got up there.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
