You will be suprised how flattered and honored your friends and family are when you ask them to be part of your wedding. And many times you will become closer because you are sharing the ups and downs of wedding planning with them.
You could always pick your mother or grandmother, godparent or someone you admire if you don't have a dependable/willing girlfriend.
My husband was so resistant to pick people on his side to be a part of our wedding, at times I had to step in and do it. And they were so excited so have even the smallest role.

But I also agree with everyone that if nobody stands out to you as someone you would want standing up for you, then just don't have any!

Anyways the way I see it, FH is my best friend, my confidante, my soul mate. It has always been us against the world so I think it should be just us standing at the altar the day of.
Do what your heart desires.

Well the MOH is MIA. I don't think she has done a thing to plan for a Bridal Shower or participate in the planning of the wedding. I lean on my younger sister alot for help in making decisions about the wedding and she is helpful. Not fanatical about it but perfunctory and efficient. I created a blog to help keep them in the loop, since they all live in different cities. I don't think they even read it. Younger sister and I talk everyday and I am not sure if her yes and no anwsers are that is quite what I would like but hey, it's better than nothing which is what I get from the other sister, who does not share the same taste or interests as me anyway and makes it her business to be so evil and ornery that I wish everyday that I had stuck with my original thoughts not to include anyone in the bridal party.
I hate to be a hater - but I hate my bridal party right now!
If you don't have anyone you want to do this with then don't! Its not worth it, it can ruin you wedding for you! This is so special and so sacred why stand there with a bunch of BEOCHEES you can't stand.

I woud have loved for my girlfriends to be in the wedding because we are close...but I didn't even know for sure that they were all coming and I didn't want to stress. Plus the sides wouldn't equal becuase he has only one good friend and I have a few...so I chose my sister which made it easy.
The best part though is that 3 of my best girfriends came w/out their husbands so they just got ready with me anyway and it was as if they were my bridal party and we had a blast!
Do what you feel most comfortable with. If you pick someone just to have someone then they may not have your best interest at hand and that is not fair to you and more trouble in the long run!
