My fiancé and I are planning a microwedding, 20 people total including us. All are family, except for 2, which are my best friends. I feel that the entire reason we chose a microwedding is because we aren’t fond of the majority of wedding traditions & we like the intimacy of small wedding.
Question is, should we still have best man and maid of honor? I feel that since we’re not going the traditional route, they won’t be standing at the “alter” with us, that it’s not necessary. They would essentially just be helping plan bach parties and bridal shower (it almost makes me feel like we are depending on them for the difficult parts leading up to, but not giving them the same recognition on the wedding day)
Also, since I have my 2 best friends coming, I feel like one will get this title and one won’t, when I feel as if they will both put forth (pretty much equal) effort. I say we forgo the wedding party idea and just leave it at us, but my fiancé thinks it will be best to have someone help us leading up to the day. Thoughts?
