So I started planning my wedding again from almost scrath (we kept the photographer) and I am so fed up with the bridesmaids drama that I have decided to not have bridesmaids or a Maid/Matron of Honor. That is one less stress I don’t have to deal with.
My Fiance is very insistant that he wants a best man (known eachother forever now, hes a nice guy) and I am fine with that. I know that a lot of people on here have uneven bridal parties but has anyone ever had it where there was only one person in the bridal party? Would that look extremely odd? What would you guys do in this situation?

I am having a Maid/Matron of Honor but Fiance isn’t having an official Bridesmaid or Best Man. She is walking as well but will sit during the ceremony. I am getting a bout for his best friend because he will be one of the witnesses along w/ my Maid/Matron of Honor. I know some ppl will think its odd but that’s how it will be.

Its your wedding and its up to you. People are doing all kinds of things now. The most important thing is that you 2 are comfortable with that and who cares what anyone else things(on this specific subject).

It works, best man walks your mom down, while your dad gets you. However you need TWO witnesses to sign the license, so have someone sitting on the front row if you don’t want them in the party (you could have a MAN of honor if you’d like a guy?)
I cut all my maids (DRAMA FOR REAL) but kept my Maid of Honor and I also have a Man of Honor, Fiance has a Best Man. He doesn’t really know that many guys and some of my maids were uhhhh, questionable at best on reliability (money, time, stress-free wise) – it got to the point where I was about to ask a slightly racist friend to stand in and I’m black, so yeeeah. Cut it all! I’m not a fan of bachelorette or lingerie parties and I want my wedding to be ultra formal/elegant but I’m also very hands on (I’m making my own cake) so the less stress I have from maids, the better to craft my designs. Got my MoH’s dress and shoes in today, wedding is Sept 2012!

I feel like it would look really odd. There would be his best man on his side and then nothing on mine. I am not sure about this at all. Should I just suck it up or should I find a bridesmaid?

I’m sure it’s fine 🙂 It’s your wedding and you should do what you feel happy with.
Oops, just saw your reply about being worried it will look funny. I wouldn’t think much of it at all at a wedding. But if it really bothers you, isn’t there anyone you could ask?

@LeDayz: I didn’t see your reply before posting my last one. I forgot about who is walking my mom down so that could definately work. Thank you so much for thinking about that, its a great idea. I will go over this with my Fiance and see what he thinks.

Good for you. Takes balls rather than caving in to pressure (self or external) to do something you know is not sittng right with you. Bravo.
