Everyone has big expectations on a bridal party, however, we don’t have any best friends. We have plenty of acquaintances – not the same. We have been together for almost a decade prior to getting engaged (we’re mid to late 20s) but prom, college, first job – my FH has been my best friend for everything and with both of us working so much we never really grew our social circle. It’s just really been the two of us and that is what the marriage is about. Is it weird we don’t have a wedding party? Does this make us look like we have no friends (even if its kinda true)? We will have approx 100 guests. We have siblings but we don’t want to force something just for the sake of having it.

Ha @ have no friends! Thats pretty much us. Many acquaintances but less than a handful of true friends combined. If I wasn’t really close to my sisters I wouldn’t have had a bridal party. Its not weird at all. Its also probably a lot less stressful to go without. No worries and don’t consider forcing anything for the sake of appearances. its your wedding, have it your way. 😀

Ah! Thanks guys! I have three brothers who I’m close to, but he only has one sister and he isn’t close with her at all. So it would kinda be weird to only half do it and switch the sides. I just wanted to make sure I wouldn’t look crazy.

Not weird at all, we have two couples that we have been friends with since high school, they are also our best friends we were the maid of honour and best man at their wedding.

Not weird at all. We’re not having a wedding party either. We both have good friends and siblings we could ask, but we just don’t want a wedding party.

No wedding party here either 🙂 I don’t think it’s weird at all. Much less stressful I think! Like you said it’s about the two of you 🙂

Save yourself the headache! There’s no need to have a bridal party. I have a friend causing drama who’s angry that she’s not in my bridal party, so watch out for that too lol

Just married yesterday and had no wedding party. It was perfect and not weird for us or our guests at all.

My husband and I didn’t have a wedding party. We just wanted our friends to be able to relax and enjoy the day without added expectations, logistics, or financial burden. It was perfect! Zero regrets, zero drama.

It’ll save a lot of potential drama! I have my Maid/Matron of Honor and my Fiance has a best man and 1 groomsmen (his family members). You’ll completely fine with no bridal party. 🙂

We didn’t have a wedding party. It made for a lot less work and a simpler ceremony. Ji highly reccomend going this route.

it won’t be weird at all, it is your wedding so you should do exactly what makes you happy. I had my brother stand on my side and I know some people thought it was strange (very conservative family), but DH and I didn’t care. It was what was important to us and we don’t regret a thing 🙂

Not weird at all! We aren’t having a bridal party either for a lot of the same reasons, and I feel like it has saved me from some extra stress.
