i think that’s totally fine!  we are not having a bridal party at all – just our sibs and parents up there with us.  We will have friends do readings throughout the ceremony, and I have been involving friends in things that they are interested in i.e. coming to look at dresses, etc.  You should do what feels right for you!

My MOH is my sister and my BM is my cousin.  You’re not alone!  I’m glad I’m having a small wedding party – it makes decisions pretty easy (like the dress, etc)

I’m only have 2 as well! My MOH (best friend) and my BM is another good friend. My FI is having his long time friend as his Best Man and my brother is his groomsman.

FI has a sister but she’ll have a 2 year old and 3 month old baby at the wedding so we gave her the option of being in the wedding. She decided against it which I totally understand.

I think it’s 100% fine to have only 2. Even 1! No one will judge and if they do… screw them 🙂

Not at all.  In fact I think it is so much nicer to have a small intimate bridal party.  Less stress too….

Absolutely not! In fact, my partner and I aren’t having a wedding party at all! I think you should just choose people that will be the most supportive.

I’m doing the same for simplicity. My thinking was that if I have this cousin then I have 4 other cousins I need to be included. The same goes with my friends. I am much closer with my sister then with any one of my friends so it works out nicely.

I’m only having a MOH! Its an intimate wedding (40 guests), and it was easiet to just have a MOH than to try to pick between friends to be BM and cause drama with who wasnt chosen.

So you’re not alone! I think it’s totally acceptable.

You’re fine! 

I had a friday night wedding, 195 guests and 2 bridesmaids. It was perfect! And less bridesmaids means less flowers and less bridesmaids gifts!

I’m having 3 bms and a jr bm and like 200+ guests.  I was worrying about the same thing before but whatever, I don’t want to just ask people just to ask.  I think the simpler the better, and if anyone asks, just explain that you wanted to have sibblings only stand up there, and say that it’s worked out to be really easy 🙂
