I am having a small wedding at an outdoor park in Indiana. My fiance and I have been together for almost 11 years so I’m not into the traditional wedding. In addition, I have no family close by and those who could up for the wedding have decided not to come because they feel as if they will go to “hell” if they attend my non catholic, but christian wedding. So that means my mother, father, grandparetns, and extened family will not be coming. However my fiance’s side of the family is very supportive and coming. With that being said I am still excited and want to have a great and inexpensive wedding.It’s just going to be me and my fiance, no wedding party
My questions are: what should be the order of ceremony for my wedding since we have no wedding party nor a father (no father figure either) to give me away? I know our 2 year old son will be the ring bearer, but what else should I add to the ceremony. Do you think my wedding will be weird with this set up? Any suggestions on how to keep some tradition, but also add some “flavor” and unique touches?

One of my good friends from high school didn’t have a wedding party. She walked part of the way by herself (down a staircase), her fiance was waiting at the back of the seating area for her and then they walked the rest of the way down the aisle together.

I only have a Maid/Matron of Honor, and that is it. I think you can do anything you want, attendant wise, but you might need some help planning.
My Fiance is meeting me at the gate and we are walking together. I think it would be beauitful if you walked a short way alone, and then met them part way- both of them-and take each by the hand. Taht would be meaningful and just lovely.

Oh, sorry, you said your son would be ring bearer. That to me seems like he would be a little bit separated. If course it is up to you, but you are joining your family, not just your FI- up to you though, it is your day! 🙂

Just off the wall….but what about your son walking you down the aisle? I know that by him being 2 it may be a little easier for him to walk down the aisle holding your hand. Happy Planning!
