We aren’t having a wedding party either. Not many siblings to include and not sure who we would want. We are having a smaller wedding anyways, so I think it will be okay. 🙂

Nope not weird! I’m kind of in the same boat. At first I felt weird about only having 2 since it seems like most people have at least 5. I’m only having my sister and a friend I’ve know for 10 years. She’s the only friend I have haha. I’m not a social person at all and don’t care to have a lot friends. My sister and fiancé are enough for me 🙂

bridetobe73 :  not weird. My cousins in law to be got married with no bridal parties despite the bride having a 5 girl crew she has grown up being best friends with….so close they had a name in high school…..like the plastics from Means girls but they weren’t mean. Lol.

Anyway, they still decided not to have a wedding party. They had their respective grandfather’s sign the wedding certificate which was super cute!

Read some of the bridesmaids threads on here and you’ll feel secure in your choice 😉 totally normal and you’ll (probably) save yourself a lot of headaches

I totally considered not having one. In the end I have a maid of honour and 2 bridesmaids. To be completely honest, if there is no one you actually want standing beside you… don’t do it – you’ll save a lot of hassle with dresses for people that don’t actually matter that much to you.

bridetobe73 :  nope! Not weird at all. We both have a couple really close friends that we could have asked, but just decided not to. It was a bit too formal for us. Plus, I’ve been a bridesmaid 3 times and by the 3rd I was just over it. I realized I will prefer to be a guest then deal with the stress of being a bridesmaid, and I’m sure my friends are the same. This way everyone can just relax and have a good time.

bridetobe73 :  DUDE, ARE YOU ME? 

Also been with my Fiance for almost a decade and he IS my best friend. We couldn’t think of anyone to ask. We aren’t close enough to anyone to ask and I didn’t want it to feel forced for the sake of tradition either. 

We’re not doing a bridal party and we’ve just said ‘we don’t want to offend anyone’ OR that we are just trying to keep things simple.

TBH, we’ve only had really positive reactions to the whole idea 🙂

I’m getting ready with my mom on the day and I have had plenty friends offer to help me if needed. 

At our head table, will be our parents.

We didn’t have a wedding party either. DH had his “best man” hand him the ring and I had my “maid of honor” sister hand me the ring but the true blue do prewedding parties and stand up with you at the event, no. It was a nice, traditional yet simple wedding. Everyone loved it.

bridetobe73 :  we didn’t have one! it saved us a ton of money. we have probably 8 close friends between us, people forgo bridal parties all the time for all different reasons. no one said anything about it, and i don’t think anyone will to you either!

We only had a MOH/Best Man. My sister and his brother.

Not weird at all and totally stress free!
