limiting little people in the wedding

Recommended Posts

I kinda dont want to have a flower girl... for many reasons.

  • i feel like it would create additional expenses and worries for my siblings
  • theres no way i can include one niece without including my other niece and 2 nephews... my heart wouldnt let me
  • if I add the 4 nieces and nephews we'll end up with a large wedding party which we wanted to avoid... thats why we chose a DW

Is anyone else forgoing tradition and not having a flower girl, junior bride/bridesmaid, junior groom/groomsmen. The only child I want IN the wedding is FI's son, theres no way we could get married without him, but as far as any other little people... I can do without:(. Not because I love them any less but I dont want any additional worries for anyone, including myself. Part of me feel like Im depriving my family of the opportunity to take part in this specal day, and part of me feels like this is what i want and i should have it. Would i be a Bitch if i go toe to toe with FI about limiting our wedding party to bridesmaids (4), maid of honor (1), best men (2), groomsmen (3) and ringbearer (1-Son)? Anything beyond that creates more work for me as I (and many brides) by default end up doing all the planning and coordinating

It's your day!!! You're not depriving anyone of anything.  They should feel it to be a privilege to be invited to attend your special day! I don't think anyone will take offence, and if they do, that's  their problem and not yours!!! I'm having 2 bridesmaids, 1 MOH and FI is having 2 GMs and 1 BM, that is all, end of story! Best of luck to you :)

We are actually doing the same thing 1 Best Man (his bro) 2 Brides Maid (my sisters). Still contemplating whether to have our two goddaughters as flower girl and ring bearer.  A little girl can be a ring bearer right?

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
