@kalliela: No not at all! I am thinking the same thing… or possibly only having max 2. I have so many siblings that if I asked them and if wanted my close gfs I’d be up to 7 girls! I want a simple wedding so seriously contemplating what you are thinking of!

If you don’t want bridesmaids I think that’s up to you. I wouldn’t think it was odd if I went to a wedding without any bridesmaids. We are just having 1 bridesmaid and no groomsmen

I think this is a great decision! Honestly bridesmaids in the end  were not all that helpful (and sometimes not even that supportive) and I think I would have preferred not to have any or just to have 1 or 2.

@kalliela: Not at all!  I am actually only have my sis, aka Maid/Matron of Honor.  I still want my girls around me, so I told them my deal and they have dubbed themselves the wedding fun committee  🙂  They will still be with me to bounce things off of and when I get ready, they just wont be buying dresses or standing at the wedding.  They are actually thrilled about it, haha.  So  maybe just let the ppl know you still want around you, that you want them there!  They will feel very honored and complimented that they mean that much to you.

We are not going to have a wedding party. I would rather have our friends as guests at our wedding and not have them feel obligated to preform “bridal party duties” instead of having a good time with us.

We’re having 60 guests and only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man.  That’s it.  Best decision ever. all of the major stress and drama I’ve seen surround weddings usually starts somewhere in the bridal party and frankly, the less people I’ve got to worry about on my wedding day the better!  

I’ve never really liked the look of excessively large bridal parties, anyway.

We’re having 20-30 guests and I’m having my brother and he’s having his brother and best friend.  I say do whatever you feel like you want and what makes you happy.

After all the Bridesmaid or Best Man drama that I’m having at that everyone else is talking about.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with foregoing a wedding party! We’re having a Best Man (his brother) and Maid/Matron of Honor (a friend of mine), and that’s all. It doesn’t matter how big or small your wedding is, the only people who *have* to be there are… you and your intended (and your officiant, I suppose).

We’re going to have 100-120 guests, and no bridesmaids or groomsmen.  I’m going to have my two brothers (and two of FI’s friends) as ushers for the ceremony, but that’s it.
