Of course it’s ok. It’s your wedding, it should be about the two of you and the people you’re closest with. If you don’t have any particularly close female friends or family members, you don’t need to pretend otherwise and pcik random women to stand up with you. 

If you have any guys you’re close with, like your brother, a cousin and/or a friend you could always have a bridesman / man of honour or something.. but of course you can also just not have a bridal party at all – that is totally fine! And even if your fiance wants to have his brothers up there with him it doesn’t mean you have to have anyone up there. My only concern if he had his bros up there and you didn’t have yours is that might hurt your bros feelings.

You can do want ever you want, you don’t need a bridal party. You can also have men in your bridal party if you want and have your brother stand for you. Or ask your mother to be matron of honor. Whatever you want! 

We are having no bridal party, just witnesses, and I have plenty of friends and family. I just don’t want the fuss.

It is fine, as long as your fiance is on board though.  Do you think he would want his brothers as groomsmen?  

how to plan a medium to a semi big wedding wedding with out any bridal or groommen

I literally don’t see what is different about planning a wedding with a bridal party vs without.

There is no law that says you need a bridal party or that sides have to match. You could do any number of things. Walk down the aisle with your parent or parents, have his brothers walk then sit down or remain standing. Or he is already up front with or without brothers and you walk with parent or parents. Or no one walks down an aisle. 

If your question is about actually planning the wedding, that’s your job. If your “worry” is about pre-wedding events any friend or family friend can offer to host a shower, which is optional and voluntary in any case.
