@FutureDrAtkins:  I don’t think it would be a problem. You’re still a Bride. You’re still getting married. You’re just choosing to have a really small wedding. I would think people would be more than happy to help you celebrate somehow. Smile

P.S. Congratulations on your upcoming elopement by the way!

What kind of event? Why not a girls night or weekend? Doesn’t have to be about you- just hanging with your friends.

@FutureDrAtkins:  I don’t think so. I think it is awesome to want one. Hopefully your BMs are planning on throwing one because it would, however, be in poor taste to ask for one. Congrats on your upcoming elopment or wedding, whatever you decide to do 🙂

When I told my friends I was having a small wedding and would not be having a bridal party, one frield said

“No bridal party, no Bridal Parties.” According to her, if I wasn’t going to have any bridesmaids I wasn’t entitled to have any showers or Bachelorette parties – This bummed me out. Until another friend made it clear that it doesn’t matter how I’m deciding to go about my own wedding day I am still a bride and there for am still entitled to do whatever bride like things I choose.


And of course she was right!


If I want to have a bachelorette party, I damn well will have one. Same for you. you are still a bride, this is still your big day regardless of how big your ceremony is going to be.

@FutureDrAtkins:  Hopefully you can elope and they will still throw you a party.  If my friend eloped I would still want to have a Bachelorette party because just because you elope doesn’t make you any less married!
