Another con is not having people who mean a lot to you stand with you. Not getting to take fun bridal party pictures. Not showing people a little more how much you care.
I only have a MOH and he has his BM.
Pros for us: less money spent on gifts and makeup and hair and God knows what else. No drama. No reliance on others.
Pros for our loved ones not asked: no expenses, party planning, drama, time sucks, etc. (Honestly, it's rarely fun being in the wedding).
Cons: eh... I don't think there are any besides maybe what PP mentioned. I'm not having any extra parties. The MOH wants a might out for me, so I'm just going to help her plan it a little since she's never been in a wedding before.
I also decided to not have a bridal party. With that being said, I also realized I do need some help that day (getting me into my dress, doing my bustle, fixing my train, helping me pee, etc) so I now I have 2 bridal VIP’s lol. They will be helping me and getting ready with me and that’s as far as their duties go. I am buying them dresses so people know they are playing a special role that day...that’s it. Totally drama free!
Omg that’s amazing! It’s funny because I also asked my 2 SIL (brothers wives) to get ready with me that day and come dress shopping with me. They are totally into it! I’m glad you have people who are willing to be there without the commitment and stress of being bridesmaids .

No bridal party here, NO regrets!! I got ready with my now SIL and one of my best friends. I didnt have a bridal shower or bachelorette party, but having already lived with my husband for 4 years and having a 3-year-old they seemed irrelevant.
I’m not having a bridal party. I didn’t want to be bothered by any of it. It’s really just a personal preference, but after being in so many weddings I couldn’t imagine putting my favorite girls through the drama and spending all that money on a dress they absolutely will never wear again. However, my two best friends have dubbed themselves my unofficial bridesmaids and still want to go ahead and plan a bachelorette party. They have also gone dress shopping with me and are always willing to give opinions when asked. Maybe it’s because I’m older and have done this once before, but I just don’t have any interest in bridesmaids whatsoever. That being said, I also don’t judge what other people want and am actually a bridesmaid in a friends wedding next year.
