Has anyone got married without a bridal party, or a small one (3-4)?

Hi everyone,
So I am on my path to planning for my wedding. As researching, I saw a lot of wedding photos with real nice, bud bridal party (at least 6 bridesmaids). However, I have been in the States around 6 years only from my country, and I am not a friend-type of person, so I don’t have all the many friends to be my bridesmaid.
I do have one close friend living in CA and maybe ask my sister-in-law and probably my cousin and a coworker.
What do you guys have to say about this? Please share your experience and thoughts with me .

    I’m not having a bridal party! I’m Indian and it isn’t required for us although some Indian couples choose to.

    I only have 5. But there really isn't a specific number that is required. It's based on your preferences, budget and relationships. My fiance only has 4 groomsmen which is kinda messing with my OCD, I feel like the pictures will look funny. lol

    My FH and I are not having a wedding party. We think it will be really special for it to just be the two of us!

    My sister was my moh and sil was hubbys best woman! The only picture of the bridal party we have are from speeches as no one stood with us they sat during the ceremony. It was way easier than having to look around for everyone for a picture or whatever. My photographer photographed everything in the moment and I swear I have the most amazing photos of that day even though it was not traditional.

    I’m not married yet, but I was going to have none until my mom suggested we pick my brother and his sister. My brother will be standing by me and his sister by him. So just two people total for both of us!
