    Im not having a bridal party either… I just didnt want to.  I have been in a few weddings and I kind of felt like a prop in 2 of them.  One experience was ok because it was my sister and I was truly happy and excited for her, so it was fun helping her plan and get a ll the little details together.

    rosecut:  Nothing wrong with that! It’s your wedding day, do what you and your Fiance want. You 2 will be the ones looking back and remembering your perfect day! Put into action what you envision.

    And you wouldn’t be the only ones going without a bridal party. We too will just have our GOH (Gentlan of Honor) and Best Man with us and as our witnesses. No need for a bridal party, that’s too much (not to mention we’re the last in our group of friends to get married – they’re all spent out after their weddings and the other friends weddings). Plus, we want our guests to come hang out, relax and enjoy without any obligations.

    rosecut:  We didn’t have a wedding party … we do have a lot of close friends, but we didn’t feel the need to have them stand up next to us, when the wedding ceremony is about the two of us.  We also had our siblings walk down the aisle but then just take a seat.  

    A wedding party is really extraneous, so don’t feel weird about skipping it!

    I’m having under 40 guests and no wedding party.

    I think there is nothing wrong with that. I also have few female friends and don’t really want anyone up there with me. I just want it about me and my guy.

    If you don’t want bridesmaids, you really don’t have to. Go with what feels right for you.

    rosecut:  My teen daughter was my maid of honor and that was it. No bridesmaids. Thought of a number of people, but decided against. Very happy because I saved myself tons of drama.

    rosecut:  No bridal party here and so happy about it!! I have sisters and none of them get along, so it’s saving me from a ton of family drama. I also don’t have many close female friends. It’s too much of a hassle coordinating what other people should do on my wedding day. Beyond that, my personal opinion of having a bridal party is that I think it’s kind of silly to ask grown women to dress alike.

    rosecut:  Our closest friends had a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man, and that was it.  It was intimate and lovely!
