Just wondering if I am alone in not having bridesmaids.
I had my 3 of my fiance’s people as mine planned (long distance wedding), but it didnt feel right and one was messing me about, so I just decided not to have any at all!
It felt like a massive weight was lifted!
Does anyone else not have any?

@beebee89: I only have 2. 1 bridesmaid and 1 maid of honor. I am kinda wishing I felt comfortable enough to do without them because honestly, they are causing more trouble than I am. (Not them personally, but finding dresses and shoes, bouquets, etc)

originally i thought i would just have a MOH but she was just not into it at all, so i’ve asked my best friend, a dude, to be my *man* of honor and thats all i’m having.
i can’t tell you how much weight has been lifted off my shoulders with that decision because with the original chick that i felt pressure to have for show i just knew i’d not get any help from her and i’d probably have to baby sit her in many ways. i’m sure you felt the same about the one being flakey with you. i +1 your decision 🙂

Bridesmaids aren’t really a tradition here in Iceland, so no. I’m not having any and I don’t know anyone that has had any either..

Totally, it was driving me crazy!
I felt like I had to have them but really my entire wedding experience will be better now (really now that one girl is gone!), and it will save them all some money!

Technically we won’t be having any bridesmaids or groomsmen, but I’ll have two maids of honor and he’ll have two best men. We briefly fantasized about going completely sans bridal party because it would cut costs on bouquets, gifts, attire, etc., but our siblings and best friends really want to stand up for us and we want them there too.
