My Fiance is having a Best Man because it’s his brother; however, I am not designating a Maid/Matron of Honor. Similarly, I doubt I’ll have a shower, and my bachelorette is going to be dinner and maybe massages. Low key, no one person needing to plan too much. My Future Sister-In-Law, who is 17, has asked if she can be my official train froofer, so she’ll stand closest to me. But otherwise, no titles.

We don’t really have a Maid/Matron of Honor or Bridesmaid or Best Man designated. My Fiance has two groomsmen, but says that he is the best man, because he is the one getting married! He is so cute. Smile  He will obviously have to choose one of them to witness, and give a speech though. I have three bridesmaids and I will have my sister, who lives out of town, sign the papers and be my general assistant for the day, so in some sense she is my maid of honour but I haven’t really brought up the title since my other two bridesmaids live in the same city as me, so they have been more involved with dress shopping, throwing the shower, etc.

We didn’t do a formal wedding party at all.  We asked our closest friends to process before us (much like a wedding party) but they didn’t have matching outfits or stand with us.

There was no formal designation of Maid/Matron of Honor or Best Man or anything like that… it worked out absolutely fine.

re: parties that the wedding party usually puts together:  My friends got together and threw me a shower.  DH’s friend’s did not throw him a bachelor party but a few of my married guy friends stepped up for him.

(And our witnesses on our license were our mom’s – I’m pretty sure you can have anyone present act as witness on the license).

I think it’s fine, but make sure everyone is in communication with everyone else, and can handle splitting up duties.  I know you said no parties, but they might decide to throw some anyway, in which case they can split up the roles.  It seems fine in theory, as long as everyone’s mature enough to handle figuring things out on their own.

we’re not having a bridal party. We didn’t with our first wedding 15 years ago either. Just not something I cared about.

We had three bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen and basically considered them all Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man. We didn’t designate specific titles at all. We did however each pick a person to give the toast, but you could have everyone just say a few words if you wanted to.

We’re not really. We decided to have our brothers sign our marriage licence. Otherwise I have a friend who is just more available than another (ie she doesn’t have 1 year old twins) so she’s helping out more. Technically I’ve dubbed her “head attendant” because I know I’ll rely on her more than everyone else.

Otherwise everyone is just equally as awesome as the other
