I am not having a bridal party. For several reasons. First being they seem to be a lot more trouble than they are worth. I mean most people I know don’t and haven’t talked to the members of their bridal parties since their weddings. Also I hate the thought of “picking” favourites among my friends and I don’t want to put the pressure on them to have to go out and by dress, accessories, etc. 

I haven’t decided who is going to sign the license but it will probably be two family members, one from each side. And my friend who has been to hell and back with me is doing a reading because she is a singer and knows how to project her voice without a mic. And other than that it will be FI and I.

I think it is totally fine. Perhaps have a flower girl or some sort of cute little person come before you to sort of announce you? Or you could use a really traditional walking down the asile type song so it will be a little more clear what is happening.

I’m not doing a bridal party, either. I, too, am a little worried about the flow of the processional. We’ll probably have FI’s grandparents walk down, followed my his parents, then my mom, and then probably our son who is the ring bearer, followed by me and my dad. I think it could be awkward, but I want to walk down to the traditional “Here Comes The Bride” so I figure everyone will know to look for me!

Why would they be confused?  The music plays.  Everyone stands.  You start walking.  They see you, the bride, coming down the aisle.  Nothing confusing about that to me!

@2ndtime: Yeah, most people should stand when the music starts.

OP, Tell your officiant that they might need to give people a little signal.
