in general, Maid/Matron of Honor is your right hand in terms of emotional support (this doesn’t mean she goes with you to tastings, etc).  if you are very lucky, she will also be the organizer of your bachelorette party and/or bridal shower, along with any other bridesmaids.

I had one attendant for our wedding (MOH and Best Man) and they really did nothing.  I don’t think you need one at all.  Your mom can help you with your dress and hold your flowers and that’s about it.  Best of luck.

We focused on family. I had my four brothers stand up for me. My older brother did make a toast, but most of the other bridesmaids duties were filled by mom mom and aunt…and my hubby’s sisters.

I didn’t wish for more people or feel like i missed out on anything. A close girlfriend planned my bachelorette party. I felt very loved and am glad I picked my siblings…they’re the ones that will be around forever!

We had two attendants for the two of us.  However, you really don’t need any.  If you have no attendants, you may just want to have a table up front, so that you will have a place to put your rings before the ceremony, a place to put down your bouquet when needed, etc.

Good question.  All this time I thought I’d have a bridal party but 2 weeks ago I officially decided to not have one.  Even though I have two sisters (one is my twin) and a brother and my fiance has one brother and one sister I opted to not have a bridal party b/c I’ll have less to organize and deal with.  Not only that but our wedding will be small–40 guests (including family) but traditional.  My twin sister was OK with it…she said “less pressure for me to lose weight.”  My older sister said she was a little sad but she understood.
