Do you have bridesmaids?!? I'm torn!

Recommended Posts

When we first decided on a destination wedding I thought about just having my sister and him have his brother, bc it would be a smaller wedding than if we had gotten married in Calgary.. Then we thought about it more and realized we really wanted to include our friends, like we have been included in some of our friends weddings. I have had such amazing experiences in the four weddings I have been in, I feel like its the best part of the wedding being with your best friends and we are both fortunate enough to have a group of friends where there is NEVER any drama! We are going to have b/w 80 and 90 guests and 14 will be at the front with us (7 and 7). I think just do whatever you want and it will be perfect for you!

I'm so glad some of you girls feel the same way I do about a "bridal party". I personally have been in my girlfriends weddings and it's always drama with the bridesmaids. Even friendships are lost. Craziness. I have decided not to have any bridesmaids or groomsmen or even MOH and BM. We were going to have our mothers as our witnesses but I just read that you can't have a relative be a witness so I actually have asked one of my good friends to be a witness. Also my father will not be able to make it to the destination wedding so I have asked my mother to walk me. I'm happy with my decisions and reading this thread made me feel even better to know I'm not the only one who's not having a bridal party. Thanks :)

It all depends on who is coming. If my fiance has a friend of his who can make it than we will have a small bridal party. I know for a fact I have two people going that can be my bridesmaids but if he doesnt have anyone he wants standing up there than it will just be us two.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
