Im only having my sister as Maid/Matron of Honor and his sister for a bridesmaid….I have friends and cousins but nobody I am close enough to want to have in my wedding. Do you think I will look like a loser? LOL

- Wedding: June 2010 - New York Botanical Garden
i think that’s totally fine! we are not having a bridal party at all – just our sibs and parents up there with us. We will have friends do readings throughout the ceremony, and I have been involving friends in things that they are interested in i.e. coming to look at dresses, etc. You should do what feels right for you!

My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister and my Bridesmaid or Best Man is my cousin. You’re not alone! I’m glad I’m having a small wedding party – it makes decisions pretty easy (like the dress, etc)

I’m only have 2 as well! My Maid/Matron of Honor (best friend) and my Bridesmaid or Best Man is another good friend. My Fiance is having his long time friend as his Best Man and my brother is his groomsman.
Fiance has a sister but she’ll have a 2 year old and 3 month old baby at the wedding so we gave her the option of being in the wedding. She decided against it which I totally understand.
I think it’s 100% fine to have only 2. Even 1! No one will judge and if they do… screw them 🙂

Not at all. In fact I think it is so much nicer to have a small intimate bridal party. Less stress too….

Absolutely not! In fact, my partner and I aren’t having a wedding party at all! I think you should just choose people that will be the most supportive.

I’m doing the same for simplicity. My thinking was that if I have this cousin then I have 4 other cousins I need to be included. The same goes with my friends. I am much closer with my sister then with any one of my friends so it works out nicely.

I’m only having a MOH! Its an intimate wedding (40 guests), and it was easiet to just have a Maid/Matron of Honor than to try to pick between friends to be Bridesmaid or Best Man and cause drama with who wasnt chosen.
So you’re not alone! I think it’s totally acceptable.

I had a friday night wedding, 195 guests and 2 bridesmaids. It was perfect! And less bridesmaids means less flowers and less bridesmaids gifts!

I’m having 3 bms and a jr bm and like 200+ guests. I was worrying about the same thing before but whatever, I don’t want to just ask people just to ask. I think the simpler the better, and if anyone asks, just explain that you wanted to have sibblings only stand up there, and say that it’s worked out to be really easy 🙂
