CREATIVE ideas for no wedding party...HELP!

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Cheers,

Dmitri

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
