Anyone here not having a bridal party??

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Is anyone here not having a bridal party?? No bridesmaid, groomsmen, or flower girl etc?? I'm thinking of not having anyone in my party just because my wedding is sooo small and honestly I'm not THAT close to that many people to be having them all in my bridal party. I may just have ONE for me and ONE for DF. Like one maid of honor no brides maid. And ONE best man, no grooms men.

 

What do you ladies think??

There are 23 in our group including us. Because of that we couldn't pick and choose from our friends so we decided to just have it be us. We do have two of them as witnesses.

There's been a few girls that didnt have any wedding parties at all. I know there are threads on here for it, you might want to search to see what they did. They didnt have to deal with a lot of the hassles we have with our attendants.

 

I think 1 for each would be nice. We are just having 2 for each and that's it. I say you should do whatever you want.

we aren't having anyone in our bridal party either. We both figured that it would be too hard to pick since everyone going is very close to us. I am having my best friends' kids walk down the aisle because i think it would be super cute though

I am doing just that! Not having a bridal party, for witnesses, my best friend of 20 years will be there and my FI's brother...so I guess they are kind of like the best man and MOH. They will probably stand nearish the wedding site with us to hold the rings and sign the papers. But we are not having them wear any special dress or outfit.

 

I just like to keep things simple and minimize the amount of work that I have to do and I have read about some serious bridesmaid drama on the forum!

I like this idea!! And aside from all the bridesmaid drama, I think it's also an extra expense to have a bridal party. Just means more gifts. Haha.

HAHA it DOES mean more gifts! And then like bridal party activities!!!

 

I guess I am just not one for tradition...I think the bridal party thing is a tradition, especially if you have been in the bridal party for friends...it is kind of like them returning the favour.

I am also just having a MOH & FI is having a BM...that's it. It makes it really easy when trying to find a dress...I just told her to pick out one in orange or turquoise!! And she is so great she picked out one in each color & let me choose!!!
