I had two girls, my sister was my Maid/Matron of Honor and my SIL was my bridesmaid. I loved having a small bridal party, way less drama and it saved us money. I did feel bad for them at times though, b/c they threw me parties and it’s harder with less people b/c they had to do more work and spend more money.

I’m just having a Maid/Matron of Honor.  I don’t think I’ll miss out on anything.  I feel bad that she has to do so much by herself but our families and friends are still all helping her out where possible (with the shower, etc) so its all good!

I am!  I don’t have many really close girlfriends and my friend that I’m having as Maid/Matron of Honor has stood by my side through countless relationship dramas, she’s really the only one I’d feel right about having stand up there with me.  I could have a bigger bridal party if I wanted, but it’d be mostly people I’d be having just for the sake of having a bridal party, not because I really really wanted them up there with me, you know?

So far it’s made everything really, really smooth and I don’t feel like I’m missing out at all.

I had just one MOH! It was just what I wanted. I would not want a larger bridal party at all. I had several close female friends get ready with me and celebrate with me in different ways. Also, since I just had the one Maid/Matron of Honor I let her wear whatever she wanted!

I’m only having 1 too, even though I quarrel about it as I’m sensitive to the 5 potentials that would have been… as well as their sensitivity in not being asked to participate

many have said that if they had to do it all over again… they would’ve not felt the obligations and just wouldve had a small wedding party.  How do we darn carry on???  shit.

I am sooooo glad to only have a Maid/Matron of Honor (my little sis) (and my teen daughter as a jr. maid), especially since people are posting daily on this site about their crazy Bridesmaid or Best Man issues!  It makes everything easier – like shopping for dresses, etc. and no girl-drama!

I am not having any attendants, actually. I just decided it would be best as everyone has to travel really far to come to where I live.

I’m only having one.. and i called her my Bridesmaid or Best Man, i’m not keen on the term Maid/Matron of Honor something about it is a bit OTT

For my first wedding, I only had a Maid/Matron of Honor. But we did have a very small wedding.  One thing we did was ask a married couple we knew to be Master and Mistress of Ceremony.  They took care of making sure everything ran smoothly.  I don’t really hear about have MC’s any more, but I can tell you, they were invaluable to us.
