I didn’t.  Only had a cousin be my Maid/Matron of Honor.  Brother of the groom was Bridesmaid or Best Man and my brothers were ushers.

I was originally going to do this unti our wedding got larger/ Fiance expressed a desire to have them. I love your reasoning for not having them however! I think your wedding sounds extremely romantic. How intimate!

We had a small wedding and I only had my best friend of 23 yrs to be Maid/Matron of Honor.  My husband has two brothers and he wanted them to be included, so it was kind of lopsided, but the only rules you should follow are your heart!  (if that sentence makes any sense; I’m a bit too tired to proofread)  🙂

We won’t have any! We’re “eloping” with an officiant and two witnesses, all dear friends of ours. But they aren’t a bridal party by any means.

One Maid/Matron of Honor and no BM’s! I have lots of friends, but one BEST friend. She is the only person that I want in my party. 🙂

I didn’t have any bridesmaids.  We had only 25 guests of which 5 were my closest female friends.  It seemed odd to pick among them and I really didn’t want to burden them with having to buy dresses etc.  They also had to travel for my wedding, so I didn’t want to add obligitory extra expenses.  I gave one of my friend’s my bouquet to hold during the ceremony at her seat and she handed it back as we walked away.  It simplified things a lot, so go for it.
