My fiance and I have been together for 7+ years, and we’re finally getting married! It was kind of unexpected so we haven’t had much time or money to put into the wedding. Our families live out of town and we don’t have friends close enough to ask to help in our wedding. The church where we’re getting married we’ve been attending for about 7 months. The people there are great and they’ve been helping out a lot. I’m just wondering how our wedding will be without the “traditional” bridesmaids and groomsmen. I would like our ceremony to look as close to traditional as possible. I’m afraid the processional part of the wedding will look empty…like something’s missing.
Have you seen this type of wedding before? Any tips for extending the length of the ceremony? Please help! Any tips and/or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

First of All, congrats on your engagement! Before I offer any advice, I have a few questions: How many people are you expecting to attend? who, if anyone, will be walking you down the isle? maybe there is someone in your congragation who you have become close to. They can act as an official witness. Maybe you can incorporate the wedding ceremony into the mass. Then it can be something that is just a part of the regular c Service? might I ask, which brand of Christian are you? I just ask to envision the scale of venue and flow of service provided. moral of the story: if you are both basically alone in your town and the only people you see regularly enough are the people in your congragatioj, then maybe your simplest way to have your wedding is to just make it a part of the service. Hope this helps

@Sapphire-Dreamer: we are Seventh-Day Adventist. and at this point I’m not sure who will be walking me down the aisle. I will probably ask my older brother who lives close by..I don’t have a relationship with my father. But thanks for the tips 🙂

My sister got married this summer and they didn’t have any bridal party. The officiant walked down the aisle, and then my brother in law and his parents, and then my sister and our parents. It seemed totally normal and not too short or anything else. Then the ceremony started and it was great. I wouldn’t worry – it just seemed intimate and lovely!
