No bridesmaid or groomsmen by choice

To comment on the extra stress, it is very much so I have a one BM who says she is coming ,but spends her money on crazy stupid things and doesn't even have a cent saved for the trip. So I say no biggy, but do I or don't I buy a BM gift for her, do I plan an OOT bag for her? I just don't know!!
So yes very much extra stress for nothing!!

The problem is my FI went and asked 6 (yes, SIX) guys to be his groomsmen BEFORE he even proposed or gave me an engagement ring!!! So since he had not proposed yet, I never discussed my thoughts on a bridal party with him.
Now it's too late because he can't take back the invitation to be a GM but I don't want to have that many bridesmaids. So now I have to select 3 or 4 which is really TOUGH because I don't want to choose from all the ladies in my life. I really wish we didn't have to have a bridal party. At worse, I would've been happy with only a MOH & BM.
This has been so stressful that I am now 4 months away from my wedding and I've only selected my MOH.... I still haven't picked the other girls because I'm so stressed about having to choose between two people and making them feel like they're not iimportant enough.
I say GO FOR IT! If I did what you did, my life would be so much easier right now

Actually, I felt like it might be unfair to ask our nearest and dearest to be in our bridal party, especially if it would be a financial burden for them to join us in Jamaica AND pay for all the other things that come with being in the wedding, so we decided to spare everyone the guilt, as keep it simple!
Also, every time I watch a bridal show and there are these brides fighting with their bridesmaids, I breath a sigh of relief that that will not be ME!
No one seems to be offended in the slightest, and actually John and I are each asking one of our best friends to give a toast at our AHR, so they will still be highlighted as meaningful people in our lives in that way -- we feel it'll be a win-win in the end!
I say do what you feel is best, and you can't go wrong!
