    Given your situation I think not having a BP is for the best, however, my family would KILL me if I didn’t have a BP. I’m only having 3 BMs. As for the 6 month old, your 4 year old could pull her on a white decorated wedding wagon:

    @sosewmama:  You can definitely have a wedding with no bridal party!

    However it sounds like you already DO have a wedding party in place!

    Why did they expect your mom to pay for their dresses?  $130 is very reasonable for a BM dress IMO.  Does your FI also not want anyone standing up with him?  

    You could tell everyone that for budget reasons you are not going to have a bridal party but that may not go over well…

     You could show her the pics and see what she thinks of the idea or you could have your mom pull the wagon. I have 3 children (6, 4 and 20 months) myself so I know how it is!

    I’m from Sweden where you often skip the bridesmaids & only use flower girls. Had we know more kids the right age (so not just babies); I would probably have opted for that because it’s just SO cute!
