Sounds like it’s going to work nicely for you.  Glad you and your Fiance agree on that!

We aren’t having a bridal party either – it was one of the very first decisions we made.  

I do wonder if it’s going to seem weird to everyone at the wedding, but I feel like it was the best thing for us.  We didn’t have to pick wedding colors and won’t have to make a big deal about everyone’s schedule before/during the wedding.  

Plus, we feel like it will make it possible for everyone we care about to enjoy themselves w/o any obligations.

I have seriously been debating not doing a bridal party….I guess it’s just tradition (and I’m very traditional) but it seems like it can make things somewhat of a circus! I would probably just do a Maid/Matron of Honor and best man, but I know this is something my SO really wants. He has a lot of really close friends and family so I alreaaaaddyyyy know my wedding party is gonna end up being like 20 people :-0 I guess I have to let the man have something!! lol

We ARE having a bridal party but no flower girls, ring bearers, etc, mainly because our wedding is a kid-free event!

After the experience I’ve been having with my friend, I am seriously thinking of not having a bridal party when I get married….

We’re just having a Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) and a Best Man (his brother).  They can wear whatever they want as long as it’s some shade of blue, and they don’t have to do anything except show up to the wedding.  The thought of a giant bridal party makes me exhausted!

we have a total of two people, one for me and one for him. Simplicity works for us as well! 🙂

My good friend didn’t have a wedding party. Their parents walked in and she had two flower girls and her younger brother. I thought it was beautiful and didn’t feel like the wedding was missing anything! Good luck!

We’re having 2 attendants each. It’s nice in some ways (fewer people to deal with), but difficult when it comes to wanting/needing to rely on other people to go dress shopping with you, go to fitting, go to tastings, host your bachelorette party, etc. I think it’s easy to not think about those things until it’s too late and you are reminded that the attendants do things.

We are just having Maid/Matron of Honor & Bridesmaid or Best Man.  It seems to have eliminated a lot of drama..
