I am having bridesmaids, but he isn’t having any groomsmen. Something that was really important to Fiance was that we were alone (besides our officiant) at the altar. He wanted it to be more intimate. So I’m just having my girls walk down the aisle and then sit in one of their reserved chairs. 

Honestly, him not having groomsmen hasn’t changed anything. For a while I wasn’t going to have any bridesmaids. Some people think it’s a little bit weird, but screw em! It’s your wedding! If you don’t want to have a bridal party, then don’t have one. It’ll be cheaper and WAY less dramatic!

My brother-in-law didn’t have a bridal party. It was simple and lovely. Two guests (I think the two fathers) signed the marriage certificate as witnesses.

Zero bridal party for my first wedding and 99 % happy with my choice. My only regret was not having at least one friend with me while I got ready.

We didn’t have a bridal party for our January wedding in FI’s country. We’re getting married again (for legal and spiritual reasons) in my country… no real bridal party for that, either. I couldn’t be bothered with the drama and formality of it all.

My sister got married last summer without a wedding party, and it was lovely and intimate. Family and good friends pitched in to do the work that was needed anyway, and we got ready with her to keep that fun included. Less hassle if your BMs bring drama!
