    I was at a friend’s wedding last fall, and she had no family there. Her father passed away some years ago, and she is estranged from her mother and sister. I believe she may have had one aunt there? But basically she had no family, and it didn’t seem odd or any different than a wedding where the bride does have family present. I wouldn’t worry about it!

    Shinytoy :  No, I wouldn’t think it’s weird. I wouldn’t presume to know your circumstances.

    My Darling Husband didn’t have any family at our wedding due to the fact that they were in another country and were unable to come.

    Shinytoy :  I can honestly say I wouldn’t even notice if someone’s family wasn’t there unless I already knew them. And if I knew them, I’d likely understand and not find it weird.

    Shinytoy :  Personally, I think the people taht attend your wedding would/may already know of your estrangements with family, so it may not be an issue at all. 

    Continue with how you are planning it! The wedding celebration is for you, not them.

    I’d think it was odd if I didn’t know the circumstances but I’d never say something or think ill of the bride because of it.
