    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.

      That is a great idea w/ the diff color 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!!! :)

            We are not having any attendants. We were going to but our ceremony is going to be short and sweet and just would rather have people there to celebrate it with us instead of having it be more formal.

              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.
