my bridesmaids were supposed to be my sisters one was very into herself telling me what she would and would not wear along with the other that kept procrastinating I mean I guess maybe i’m crazy to think that they would actually put money to their dress now it seems only one sister came through my maid of honor is now pregnant and going through financial problems i wish i could pay for the dresses but i really can’t afford it will it be silly with one bridesmaid and one groomsman?

I didn’t have a wedding party. I had one of my sister’s be my witness and my husband had his sister be his witness. It was SO much easier! We didn’t need to worry about dresses, suits/tuxes, extra money on flowers, head table seating arrangements etc. Our families and friends were very supportive (and even thanked us for not having them spend money on something they would never wear again).
If you have only one, that will be awesome as well. Remember that it’s your day, and you should do whatever makes the most sense and is most comfortable for you!

We had one of each and loved it!!! However, if you go with that, I would recommend having one or two girlfriends on hand to help you that day with odds and ends. It’s amazing the last minute stuff that will come up. It’s actually best to have someone not in wedding party help with with that because they won’t be focused on getting ready – they can just focus on helping you.

Another positive to one of each is it eliminates the dress drama! I told my Maid/Matron of Honor what color and let her pick her own dress. She had me look at it and I loved it. It was perfect because she was able to pick a dress in her price range that she felt great in.
