We aren’t having a wedding party either and I know there are more of us out there.  (There was a thread a couple days go.)

I think we are going to have his parents go, then mine, and I am going to walk alone.  We aren’t having any flower girls or ring bearer.

Are you concerned with the timing against a song or just the overall length or the processional?

No bridal party here. No flower girls or ring bearers either. I really wanted to keep the pomp (and need for organization) to a minimum, to the point where I was considering being at the venue to greet my guests as they arrived and then just kind of gathering around the ceremony spot (it’s in a garden). But then I thought that might be a bit anti-climactic and I wanted to give my dad the “honor” so I will probably walk down the aisle with him. As a guest I don’t really care about the other people who walk down the aisle anyway, you know? We’re all just waiting to see the bride. 😉

Just having a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man to be our witnesses.  Not sure about my processional yet, but I guess I’d just figure something long enough for me to walk down.

You don’t sound conceited! I think the processional is the part most brides imagine when fantasizing about our weddings.  After all, there is a lot of time and money spent on looking fabulous and that is the moment to be in the spotlight and show it all off! As a wedding guest, I always love that part.  I love to see the groom’s face when he sees his bride and I love watching them have eyes only for each other as she walks toward him.  Smile

We are not.  We are eloping, but I did not even when I had a 75 guest wedding planned.  I didn’t understand the point, nor did I want anyone to have any roles/jobs.

I’m absolutely not having a bridal party. At most I will have 2 close friends with me, but more likely just a maid of honor. My wedding is on a budget but it’s more so due to the fact that I only want someone I am extremely close with at the altar with me on a day as big as this. I never really understood the huge bridal party thing.

We didn’t have a bridal party but we had immediate family walk down first as the processional. Partly because I wanted some anticipation, partly because it was the only way to guarentee them a spot near us with the way our ceremony site is set up. You could consider doing something like that!

We didn’t have any bridal party (small, backyard wedding). Basically, the friends who were holding the chuppah went out and set it up without any fanfare, then DH went and stood under it a little while before the wedding was going to start. Meanwhile guests were arriving and chatting. Then when it was time, my mom and dad together escorted me to chuppah. It was very simple and easy!
