Anyone else opt not to have a wedding party? I have been a bridesmaid numerous times and really never saw the difference than being just a guest at he wedding….except for the often “not so flattering” dress I was wearing. So my fiance and I chose not to have a bridal party. For those who chose the same route….did it work out or are you currently having any regrets?

we’re only having a bridal party because Fiance wants one, i’d rather skip it. do you want a bridal shower and a bachelorette party? if you don’t have BMs, i’m not sure how that works, but if they aren’t events you’d want anyway, then it wouldn’t matter. or maybe a close friend would offer to do it. i figure you and your Fiance are the ones giving yourselves to one another, and guest are their to witness and support that, so wether your girlfriends are standing up with you as BMs or guests isn’t really that important.

@MrsE.ToBe : My mom and sister are throwing me a shower (clearly not a surprise since I have to fly to CT for it) which is very sweet of them. I am not that close to my sister but she said she wanted to do this for me. The wedding has actually brought us a little bit closer but we still have some more work to do.
I also felt the same way…does it really matter if my friends are in the “audience” as opposed to standing next to me? Plus they actually thanked me because they didn’t need to spend he money on dresses and hair, makeup, etc. and since we are having a sort of destination wedding they can spend the money on travel and hotel. Plus we are having 15 minute max ceremony….straight to the point! 🙂
