I had no bridesmaids or groomsmen, no Maid/Matron of Honor or best man, no flower girls or ring bearers, I even walked myself down the aisle.  And, we had 125 people at the wedding.  You should do what you want.  Most people I told were commending the decision and only a few thought it was weird (at least from what was said to my face!).

We’re having an attendant each and then 2 flower girls and a page boy. So nearly as many kids as adults but we thought the kids would find it fun.

We are havingin about 130 people and aside from a best man and maid of honor there will be no bridal party.  We did however ask our younger nieces adn nephews to be a part of the wedding.  We didn’t want to hurt anyones feelings or have a huge wedding party we opted for the easiest thing for us.  He has one brother and I have one sister!

I’m just having a Maid/Matron of Honor and Fiance is just having a best man.  When people ask how many bridesmaids and groomsmen we will have, I just say “Just a maid of honor and best man!”  Everyone so far has responded that it is so smart, so much less drama, etc.

We are not having a bridal party either. My daughter (age 10) will stand up for us, but that’s about it. We are having a small destination wedding (34 guests) and decided to opt for no bridal party.

No bridal party here either.  Also having a small (30ish people) wedding.  No flower girls or anything.  I want it to be just us.  Plus, I don’t want all the bridal party drama.

We did not have a wedding party (96 guests) and our friends were relieved they didn’t have to go through the charade. We got a self-uniting license so we did need two witnesses (my sister and his best friend) and then we asked his closest cousin and my best friend to do a reading together. You can include those you love without having a wedding party. My brother escorted my mom and grandmom to their seats, my niece and nephew escorted my mom into the ballroom, and DH’s sister’s escorted his mom into the ballroom (both our parents are divorced).

We’re not having a wedding party either. We originally had one, but decided it was too much to deal with. We are only having my niece as the flower girl. It’s one less thing to worry about and neither of us could muster the excitement to plan that aspect. Our wedding will be around 70-75 people, but this is definitely the best option for us.
