No Best Man Or Maid Of Honour. Is This Ok?

Recommended Posts

I'm not really having a bridal party, either. I asked my sister and my bestie to by my Matrons of Honor. I just need the two of them to keep me calm and as stress-free as possible. As far as dresses, I told them to coordinate among themselves.. they can do whatever they want for style, where they get their dress from, etc. I even told them they don't have to get their hair done. My sis is a newlywed and my bestie just had a baby, so I know my wedding is asking a lot already.

I guess what it boils down to is being surrounded by people that love you and support you. But it's easy to get wrapped up in all the shenanigans. I want everyone to be happy but it doesn't always end up that way. Oh well as my FI keeps saying it's our day and if someone isn't happy they can stay home!

We aren't doing a bridal party and I am also having my dad be my witness. I really want our wedding to be about US and my fiance and I have been together forever so I really want to walk down the aisle together (I'm also very non-traditional so I don't want to be "given away"). So, having my dad be my witness still gives him a special role and he is happy to do it. My fiance will either have his mom or dad as well.

 

After we drafted our first guest list we came up with a plan that does not include a best man or maid of honor. Our fathers would be our witnesses.

 

This idea came because my FI did not know who he could ask as his best man without hurting his other friends. As far as my bridal party goes I would take my sister as MOH but for many reasons am not sure she would even attend our wedding. If that were the case I would ask his sister to be MOH but I really don't want her to feel like she is plan B because i really do care about her, she's awesome. 

 

My suggestion was that we ask our fathers to be our witnesses. That way everyone is on the ''same level'' as groomsmen and bridesmaids. 

 

Does this make sense to anyone else? If it doesn't feel free to share... i'm brainstorming here!

I agree with @@Sabes44. I love the idea of just the two of us being at the front. To me it brings the intimacy level to a whole new level.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
