    we had no wedding party and I do not regret it one bit! I feel like it saved us a lot of stress, money, etc.

    we did have a flowergirl and ringbearer though....

    when we were discussing the possibility of having a wedding party or not I think my hubby put it best...he asked "what is the difference between our friends standing up or sitting down at the ceremony?" and because our wedding was so small, there was no difference!

      We had an all child wedding party consisting of a flowergirl, ring bearer and bible bearer between the ages of 7 and 10....no adult participants. It worked out just fine...and much cuter. It was cheaper too because kids fit off the rack ! If i had to do it over, I would have 6 kids to even it out...still no adults. And kids steal the show :) My niece, my flower girl acted as MOH...she held my bouquet and parasol at the alter, which meant a lot to her.

        We are having just an MOH and best man. We thought that going that route would be easier but NO! I've had several girls who just CANNOT understand why I didn't ask them to be in the wedding. Even after explaining that we are keeping it small and just having the one each, they are still mad. Good for you for not having any! I sort of wish we were going that route now.

          I'm so glad we decided not to have a big bridal party. If it were up to me we wouldn;t have one at all but FI wanted his brother as his best man so I decided to have my MOH - my sister. I just wanted to keep it simple and not have to worry about all the extra stuff.

          Some people look at me as if I have two heads when I say we're just having a BM and MOH. lol

          BRIDE + GROOM + 60 GUESTS!!

            We're not having a wedding party - it's going to be a small wedding and I don't want to deal with the stress of it! I also just want my FI and I in the pics with the minister - no one else standing off to the side! I have always wanted a simple wedding!
