I would not worry about that at all. People will only give it a fleeting thought, if they even notice. We’re only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

We are only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and a best man. We are also having a ring bearer and flower girl. I don’t think that people will care or notice and even if they did, so what? Those are obviosuly the closest people to you and I think that is what people will take note of. Don’t worry!!

I have heard so many people say they wish they had only included those closest to them instead of having a bunch of people in their wedding party just to fill up space! I don’t think you need to worry about it.

The Royal Wedding only had 2 attendants (and some flower girls/ring bearers, but I don’t count them) and their church was HUGE!  I think you’ll be fine!

It’s your day, do what YOU want.  Who cares what others think as long as you are HAPPY!!!

Agreed.  I think you should do what you want and not worry about anything else.  It will be beautiful especially since you have the people that you really want up there with you Smile.  Honestly, I recently went to a cousin’s wedding with 10 BMs and 8 or something groomsmen plus flower girls and ring bearers.  It was a little bit much seeing as they couldn’t even fit on the altar.  One girl was in the shadows the entire time 😛

If you’re concerned I’ve known people who have had parents or siblings walk down the aisle to their seats.

Otherwise I think its alight to have a small processional.

I am having two Bridesmaid or Best Man, one Maid/Matron of Honor and one Groomsmen (or Best Man).  My BM’s keep telling me not to worry about the small party, but it does seem bother me once in awhile.  Then I think, that the people I picked are who I truly want standing up with me and it will look beautiful no matter what!

We had 4 people in the wedding party. It didn’t seem short at all to me. First it was my husband with his parents, then his Bridesmaid or Best Man, my Maid/Matron of Honor, the bridesmaid and groomsman together, flower girl, then me and my parents.

I don’t think it’ll be a problem at all! I hate that some people feel the need to pad their bridal parties with extra people they don’t really want there just because it’s what convention says. Who needs the exact same number of people on each side, or a set number – is four perfect? Six? What’s too many? Just do what makes you happy!

We had only a best man and a Maid/Matron of Honor and I don’t think anyone noticed.

We only had two people stand up with aech of us too – I think it’s really common and won’t look weird at all, despite the long aisle.
