not having Attendants?

Recommended Posts

We aren't have a wedding party either. We started off wanted 4 to stand for both of us [my two sisters, his two sister, then three of his friends and one of my brother-in-laws] but then that started a lot of drama because he wasn't asking the other brother-in-law. Then the other three friends said that they wouldn't come.

 

We, just like one of the PP, decided a DW because we didn't want the stress of it, and we felt like this was causing too much stress, so we just veto'd the whole wedding party.

 

Everyone understands.

 

What we are doing though- to make the four sisters feel special, is we are giving them fuschia parasols, our moms pink, me green, and the rest of the female guests white ones. Then, they all feel 'special' because they got different colour parasols.

I am having 55 guests and we are not having any. I have 3 close girlfriends who have assisted with planning and are throwing my shower. I have gifts I got for them and am acknowledging them in a Special Thanks section of my program. I've thought about getting them corsages but not sure yet. It is more drama than it is worth I think and less planning I have to do around that. No rehearsal dinner. No covering anyone's hotel rooms. No picking dresses etc. No worrying about people being places on time. I just want them to come in whatever they want to wear and have a good time. They will be there up front with my family...I'll just hand whoever is closest the bouquet and he will have his mom or Uncle hand him the ring from the front row. No big deal. I've never understood the need for bridal parties anyway. Part of why I wanted a DW was because I wanted simplicity...and that is what I am having.

My FI and I too do not want a wedding party, I have one sister and his sister has passed away. I know I need to have my sister involved but I cannot figure out what to have her do aside from stand up there with me, which I dont want. Any suggestions?

 

THANKS!!! :)

There are a lot of girls on here that didn't/aren't having a bridal party. There is nothing wrong with that. You need to do what you want to do.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
