Wait a couple of days and tell your Fiance that you think it will be better not to have a bridal party.  You can easily switch ppl to ushers, DOC, readers, etc.  If he still wants a Groomsmen, let him know that you wont’ have anyone and it will look odd.  Hopefully, he agree.

My Fiance didn’t want anyone to stand and I wanted my Maid/Matron of Honor. So, I have a Maid/Matron of Honor and his bestie will be one of the witnesses(marriage license). 

Take a couple days away from the planning and relax.  Weddings tend to bring out the best and worst in us.

Good Luck!!!

You have another year right? You never know how you may feel by then. Just give it a little time and see if you change your mind then.

Maybe you should just think about it for a few days make sure that you make this decision when you are not too emotional. Talk to your Maid/Matron of Honor or another Bridesmaid or Best Man and tell them how you are feeling maybe they can change their attitudes a little. I think they would probably change their attitudes if you just told them that you are thinking of not having a bridal party because then they would know how serious you are taking things and how badly you feel. If you still think that you don’t want to have a bridal party then just explain to you fiance what you have been going through. Tell him exactly what you told us and let him know that its really fustrating you and stressing you out. In regards to his best man, I really don’t think that it would be fair for you to say that he can’t come to the wedding. Its your fiance’s wedding too and he obviously cares about having that guy there and might rewen the wedding for him if he isn’t. Not even inviting the guy that he wants to be the best man would not be fair at all.
