So me and my fiance have a good group of friends, but i dont feel we are close enough to have any of them stand up in our wedding? the more i think about it, i really would just be content having my sister stand up as the maid of honor and my fiances brother as the best man and that be it…..would that look kind of awkward? i just see so many people have these big wedding partys and these friends in their wedding pictures who they dont even talk to anymore….thoughts please???

@brittbrust123:That’s what we’re doing! Only his sister for his best person.

Go for it! I am having my sis and good friend as BM’s and my Fiance is having two of his good friends as Groomsmen. I’m not very close with a lot of people as well, and in my experience large wedding parties are more trouble then they are worth. I would rather have a small group of good friends around me on my day then a ton of people I may or may not be close with in five or ten years.
Pictures will be much quicker!

We had 1 Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) and a best man (his friend).

We had a wedding party of one. My Maid/Matron of Honor was my Bestie and Darling Husband didn’t want anyone. Now I did have 2 of my sisters as readers and my Grandma gave a Blessing. It was perfect.

Ditto! Same story for us. My sister will be Maid/Matron of Honor n his best friend the best man. I think its fine. I mean everyones there anyway, then theres no worries about who does what, who pays for what, girls arguing about what dress they want to wear. Plus I read somewhere that for legal witnesses, youre only required to have two persons, so its perfect for signing things like that.

I am having my friend as a Maid/Matron of Honor and he is having his brother as best man. I am getting more and more confident about this decision as I hear all of the complications that a larger party brings. Also, I am looking forward to spending time alone with my fh prior to the ceremony as we are doing pictures with just the two of us and then taking a car together to the ceremony/reception site. I can let you know how it turns out in a few months. LOL

His sister is going to be my Maid/Matron of Honor and my brother is going to be his best man. I really only wanted family to be in the wedding. idk that’s just my preference. I’ve had 3 best friends in my life but I really wanted to bring the families together. I don’t think it will look strange at all. At least not any more strange than people who have like 15 attendants each. I honestly just don’t like huge parties either, especially for a low key casual wedding like mine
