We haven’t had the wedding yet, but I’m only having two MOHs and he’s having a BM and a Groomswoman. And that’s it.

Good luck to you!

I’m having a wedding with about 30-40 people, having a bunch of bridesmaids makes no sense (plus in my culture, about 3 is average). It seemed logical to have only one bridesmaid!

I don’t see anything wrong with it, especially if your wedding is small. Maybe she is shy and she don’t want to be the only one standing up there…..lol.

I was in a wedding where I was the MOH, and there were no other bridesmaids.  It wasn’t wierd at all!

I was maid of honor in my sister’s wedding. They only had a MOH and best man. It isn’t what I prefer, but it was very fitting for my sister and her husband.

We had only a maid of honor and best man – nothing strange about it at all!

My wedding will be one MOH and one BM. I have lots of friends, but none of them compare to the relationship I have with my MOH. Likewise with FI and his BM.

We each only had one attendant.  Nothing weird about it.

I was once a MOH with no bridesmaids. It worked.

I am just having my sister and FI is having his brother.  I think it will be fine, I’m not worried about it.

We are planning just a MOH and Best Man, no extra bridal party. Our guest list is only 70 as well, I think it’s the perfect setup.

We’re planning on having an MOH and a best man. Neither of us have many friends and our wedding won’t be very big.

That’s not weird at all and most likely what I will end up having. I just don’t have any friends close enough to ask and it seems like asking for trouble if you just have people up there for the sake of having more people.
