I do not have any bridesmaids.
i started out with three.. but lost my last one two weeks ago (six weeks before my wedding!)! I simply could not handal the cattiness and rudeness. Im not a bridezilla, Im pretty laidback, and though my wedding has been on the higher end of expectations, I wasnt the kind to demand they lose weight, or yell because things arent going my way.
So, long story short, MY FH has a bestman, and two groomsman, but I have no bridesmaids.
Our wedding is in a really large, really old historic church in Texas with a super long isle. Its really beautiful!
Anyone else getting married with groomsmen and no bridemaids?

@gorusticorgohome: That’s a beautiful church! Sorry to hear you won’t have bridesmaids, but it sounds like you’re embracing it. Good for you! 🙂

@gorusticorgohome: wow that is beautiful! I didn’t have a bridal party. It’s not that unusual.

Im glad to hear that it isn’t unusual, because I was a little unsure of how to handle it at first. But as was mentioned, Im trying to just embrace it, and be happy that the drama has subsided. i was thinking of having the best-man walk my mom down the aisle to her seat, and my FH walk his mom down, and to her seat…
I’m wondering still though if his groomsmen should stand up with him, or if maybe we should stand up front by ourselves…

@gorusticorgohome: I probably wouldn’t want the groomsmen standing up there if it was just all on one side…how many will there be? I don’t mind uneven bridal parties but I’d probably wonder as a guest why he has men standing with him and you don’t have anyone with you.
Beautiful church though
ETA: Just saw 2 groomsmen lol sorry don’t know how I missed that. That’s probably better but maybe you can still have one of them stand next to you and the other next to your FH if you’re close to any of them. If not I wouldn’t worry about it…I was picturing a long line of groomsmen and no bridesmaids lol that I would wonder what happened as a guest

See, Im thinking that as well… There are two groomsmen- not including his bestman (both are his brothers). Im thinking of having them seated, and not standing. Maybe walk the moms, then all take thier seats? ugh! im not sure how to do it.. I need to figure it out though, wedding is in six weeks!

I think having the groomsman sit and only the best man actually stand up with you is a nice idea.

Do not worry – I am in a very similar situation and I realise that having no bridesmaids is a good thing.I didn’t really feel comfortable with my fiance not having any BMs where I do not really have anyone that is special in my life. Bridesmaids cost money.

So Fiance does have a Bridesmaid or Best Man, you just dont have bridesmaids… is the best man standing up with your Fiance during ceremony?
