    I have thought very hard of whether or not to have a wedding party...there are several reasons for the thoughts.From the uneven numbers to the small wedding and really wanting to avoid costs for myself and my friends. My friends are important to me and I want to include them, but I don't know how and want to be creative. I have thought about them passing me a flower as i walk down the isle(to form my bouquet), but that may be too much? HELP any ideas would be fantastic!!!!

      I think the flower idea is really original. You can do whatever you like..you're the bride!

      But maybe you should give us a little more background. Uneven numbers isn't really a big deal. A lot of us gals have that (I've got five girls, my FH is only having his bro stand up with him). How many friends are you trying to include? And if they are going to be there ANYway, what about having them select a dress they can afford in a style they like and want to wear again, you just pick the color? The biggest expense is just getting there, I think you can avoid heaping too much additional expense on them if you keep the attire low cost. If thats not the route you want to go, I'm sure there are lots of ways to include them...just need a lil' more background, especially numbers.

          i didn't have a bridal party, but I still gave my would-be-bridesmaids and honorary bridesmaid gift. It was an album full of pictures of us. The cover had a picture of their heads superimposed on funny bridesmaid pictures.

              Well, you don't have to include them in the ceremony. That's not very common. I've seen poems,singing and playing of instruments. That's pretty much it. Then when the picture time is up, your photographer can come up with a few ideas with all of you together.
