No bridesmaids here.  Originally when we were doing a bigger wedding I was going to have my best friend and SIL.  Now it is just going to be parents, siblings and their spouses  and my grandmother (18 people total with us and our 3 kids and a nephew).  FIs boys will stand with him at least at the beginning (will be 4 and 5) and our son (17 months at that point) will walk me down the aisle.

none here either! 

I’ve only been a bridesmaid for my sister and it was lovely but I hear my friends complaining all the time about the hassle and expense of being a bridesmaid and no one actually seems to enjoy it. It just put a cloud over my impression of bridesmaids in general.

That’s not what decided it for me, I just didn’t think it worked for us. I dont’ like being the center of attention and this just seemed to compound it. My best friends are still going to be there and we’re going to have a great time. They just don’t need to wear matching dresses or throw me a shower!

I have four young nieces so we’re having 4 flower girls instead 🙂
