I wish I DIDN’T have a bridal party. I regret that it’s not just going to be the two of us. I’ve decided I’m going to have them sit down so it will just be the two of us standing.

we didnt have one, just because we didnt want to burden folks and it’s made things SO much easer.

I’m not having one either.  If I did I would probably end up with 6+ bridesmaids and two MOHs.  I don’t want the hassle.

I’m having an extremely small bridal party, just his brother as the best man and my sister as the maid of honor.  It worked out well that way, but I couldn’t stand the Bride’s best friend race.  Also this way everyone can wear whatever they want and they can surely wear it again!

I didn’t want to have a bridal party for some of the same exact reasons as you, but in the end I’ll have a Maid/Matron of Honor and one Bridesmaid or Best Man.  The only expenses they are incurring is travel (not making them purchase shoes/dress/make-up/hair/nails/jewelry/rooms) and I’m not doing any showers or bachelorette parties.  Honestly, I’m really glad I have a wedding party now (FI asked his brother, also not doing a bachelor party) because everyone has been so cooperative.  If I was in your position, I’d probably avoid the situation with your sister, and just skip the wedding party.

I’m planning on a Best Man and Maid of Honor – no others.  This is due to conflicts between some of my good friends I don’t want to deal with at a wedding.
