I’m having a May wedding, me and my fiance have been together 9 years. We were young when we got together , finally decide to tie the knot! So we are having a small country wedding at a bed and breakfast in the country http://www.southerngracebb.com beautiful place. We decided to have a small , probably around 30 people wedding. We are debating on whether having a maid of honor and best man at all. I am thinking about not even bothering with that small amount of people. It’s going to be elegant and all but i don’t feel it necessary to spend extra money on these things when we could use that money we would put toward that for our honeymoon or other arrangements. Is it a must have? The Maid/Matron of Honor and BM???

You do need 2 witnesses to sign the official documents, but these need not be members of a wedding party. You could ask anyone in attendance.

@mariegerbasi: I don’t think the MOH/BM’s are must have’s but they are nice. I wanted people to help me get ready/hang out with me that day. And really they don’t add much to the cost. Generally they get a gift but those are usually not much $$$. And you can do something simple for a bouquet. The other good part about only having one Bridesmaid or Best Man is that she could pick out just about any dress and probably save her some money too.

@ Natalieh Sounds good, might look into that. We just weren’t sure if it was a must have, we have just been debating the pros and cons, but i think it will work out! Thanks
@ julies thanks, i wasn’t sure if they had to be particular people or if it mattered
I have never really been around a wedding at all so i’m kind of new to this whole thing wasn’t sure how to go about all of it
