I don’t see a problem with still finding a way to honor your closest girlfriends. Although if your FI isn’t going to have groomsmen, you may want to think of an alternative to the formal bridal party just so that the celebration doesn’t feel lopsided. Why do you think your FI won’t want a wedding party on his side?

I think you can honor your friends. But it would be a little odd because their main duty is standing up with you at the ceremony. I also think they might not want to spend money on dresses and all that if it’s just for the reception.
