I’ve lost touch with a lot of my old friends lately. I really only had one person in mind to be Bridesmaid or Best Man but Fiance didn’t have any close friends either so we decided on no bridal party. I still wanted to honour my friend so she is my “honoury” bridesmaid, she’s been dress shopping with me, I talk about wedding things with her, she’ll be getting ready with me the morning of the wedding and coming in the car. She just won’t stand up next to us, doesn’t have to buy a special dress etc.

You don’t HAVE to have bridesmaids if you don’t feel like it. Since you have 2, you don’t have to have one be a Maid/Matron of Honor either, why don’t you just leave them both as BM?

My fiance doesn’t have very many close male friends while I have too many close females in my life so we’re not going to have a bridal party because we don’t want to pick and choose between those we love. I’m going to ask certain females to join me the morning of the wedding to get ready with me though

I’d say just skip the Maid/Matron of Honor part, and just have them all be bridesmaids.

I had the same type of problem. We both have a large family so we are having brothers and sisters in the wedding party. We both have a best friends that are similar they do what they want and show up when they want. So I am nervous to ask her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor just b/c she doesn’t always think about the other person. I was actually thinking of not having a Maid/Matron of Honor and just having my bridesmaids b/c he will have 2 bestmen. Oh and I don’t have any sisters just brothers.

Do you have any close male friends?  You can always have mixed wedding parties.  My sister had my male cousin stand up with her on her side, and her husband had one of his sisters-in-law.  It worked out great.
