    We're also not having a wedding party.  We don't expect many to come anyway.  2 of our best friends will just act as our witnesses.

      I think its awsome how many of your girls arnt having a bridal party. I don't want one either. I broke the news to my mom. She thought it was a GREAT idea! ....

       

      Plus I really really don't want children in my wedding. I never had. And this gives me a great excuse to not have my FI's 5year old Niece and Nephew in the wedding with out looking like a b*tch.

       

      Also...saving on flowers!

       

      Plus with a Destination wedding, there would be no one left to sit and watch the wedding if we had people stand up. It's too small =)

          You can do whatever you want!  This is YOUR wedding!!!  We had a bridal party but you certainly don't have to.  We simply wanted to include those closest to us but it's your choice!

            PS:  not sure why everyone has such drama with the Bridal Party.  I had a MOH and 3 BMs and my husband had a BM and 1 GM (2 GMs were not able to travel at the last minute) and had NO drama at all.  They were super happy to participate and felt honored, as would/did I with their weddings!  But if you expect there to be drama, then you should probably skip it!

              We are having 2 BMs one of my best mates and FIs sister - they were both thrilled to be asked and we have had no dramas.  FI doesnt have a best man at the moment as his best mate doesnt know if he can come yet otherwise his brother will step in.  Everyone knows the score and we have had no dramas at all.  But I guess if you feel dramas may occur - best skip the wedding party!!! x

                I'm not having a wedding party either.  My best friends will be attending, they have been invited to all the fun stuff (dress shopping).  I have e-mailed them about invitations and asked opinions.  I feel like they have been included but i don't want the extra "stuff" associated with a bridal party.  It's about me and my hubby that day and our friends and family can share in the festivities.

                    MD Lady, not that I think my friends would cause me any drama but when I factor in (if I were to have BM's) that all of them would be my friends and not necessarily family members I know for a fact that someone would have a tissy...and how could I pick one friend to be the MOH...I have such an amazing relationship with all of them and them with each other it would be torture to pick...don't think I could...so the easiest way for me was to say skip it...we're all looking forward to having an awesome time...besides I never follow the path well traveled!

                      We're not having any...never really liked the idea of bridesmaids! We're having a MOH and bestman, mainly just to act as our witnesses and they're friends that are coming to the wedding anyway. I also decided that my niece and nephew will be flower girl and 'ring bearer', they're coming to the wedding and I really wanted them involved!
