    I think it depends on your friends. I wouldn’t think they would be upset if you decided to opt for no bridal party. It’s totally different than just kicking one person out. That would be in poor taste, and would ruin a friendship. But they should be understanding of this. I would just talk with them and have an honest converstation and see how they feel. If they’re close to you they should understand.

    Tell your FI to ASK his groomsmen, and keep your BP the way it is! If he doesn’t ask them, then don’t worry about it. Have your kids stand up there (put one BM on each side, and one kid on each side).

    I think you should keep the girls, but maybe during the ceremony have them walk down the aisle and then sit down in the front row instead of stand next to you (they do that in church often) so it doesn’t look awkward with girls on one side and no guys on the other. Then you can do pictures of just you with your girls. I see so often people stressing about who to have in their party based on what the pictures will look like. Who cares??? You will regret not having your girls as a part of your big day I think. Having even sides is something that people only care about because of how it looks. At the end of the day, it’s how you FEEL that really matters. 20 years from now you can look back at your girls in their pretty dresses with you in yours and you’ll have wonderful memories. It’s unfortunate that your guy doesn’t want groomsmen but that shouldn’t mean you have to give up your bridesmaids!!!

    I know that I picked my girls because I couldn’t imagine getting married without them by my side. I’d be terribly upset if for some reason I wasn’t able to have a bridal party anymore. I think even if FI had no friends to be on his side, I’d still have mine up there.

    If you’ve already asked them, then you can’t back out. Sorry.
