Smaller wedding parties or none at all are my favorite. Makes the wedding more intimate in my opinion. I’d say go for it.  Candice

I don’t think you are rude by not wanting a bridal party. Just explain to your other friend that it’s not that you are just kicking her out of the bridal party, there won’t be anyone up there so that she doesn’t take it personally. As long as she hasn’t paid for any dress or anything then I don’t see her minding that decision. And in the end, you want to have the wedding you are comfortable with so if that means no bridal party then go for it 🙂

Hey hun! I have the same problem!!! Well sort of! I’ll explain. First though, you are not being rude 🙂 It’d be rude if you just asked her not to be your Bridesmaid or Best Man because you want a small bridal party or because you want to replace her but since your scratching the whole thing there is nothing rude about that…

My situation is the same, we are having a small destination wedding(we live in CA our family and friends live on the east coast) and I decided it’d be harder just to have a bridal party than not to. So I already told two of the three BMs about it and they’re totally cool about it. My FIL’s are totally cool with it and my mom isn’t really but it’s not her wedding haha The Bridesmaid or Best Man I haven’t told yet I plan on telling actually tomorrow. I know she’ll understand and not be offended..at least I hope not! I don’t think she will though since we aren’t having a bridal party at all ya know?

Good luck girl!

I tink it will be totally fine since she hadn’t bought a dress or anything yet.

@ Sep Queen – Very serious lol. I don’t even feel like I’m friends with my bridesmaids anymore. No one has offered to do anything…anything. They won’t even go get their dresses. I know my wedding is not that important to them but their baby showers and domestic problems werent that important to me either. Overall, they just suck.

My Maid/Matron of Honor almost backed out of my wedding, but she felt sorry for me and said “scratch what I just said”. So I know how you feel. I think it’s less stressful with out a wedding party, but it’s also much more funner and it makes your grand entrance so much more exciting and “Thun, Thun, Thun, Thun! Here comes the bride!”
