- Wedding: December 2012
Fiance and I have literally no friends outside of family. So picking my bridal party was easy for me because my cousin is also my bestest friend so she of course HAS to be my Maid/Matron of Honor, I picked fiance’s sister as a bridesmaid with her little girl as the flower girl (she turned 3 a couple days ago), and my other cousin as a bridesmaid, and my daughter as a junior bridesmaid.
He has no one for a grooms party, he picked a best man but that was cancelled because it was a new “friend” that he worked with for a couple months but when he switched jobs they never talk or see each other. He is the one who stops by and calls and stuff but the “friend” never makes an effort so he said he’ll just have no grooms party.
Would it be okay to just have the bridal party walk alone down the isle? Or would having a “best woman” (I saw the idea in someone’s recap pictures and I love it) be more ideal, could always ask his sister to play the role since they are close.
His father would be the best man but sadly he is very ill with Parkinson’s disease and day to day changes on how well he is. I don’t want to cause him any discomfort or stress having him in a role that may be overwhelming for him.
So we are a bit lost on how to tie in the grooms party into the ceremony, I am okay with having just the bridal girls but not sure how others may see it.
Any ideas? Opinions?
