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

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.
