It's a 2nd wedding for us both and we don't wanna place any unnecessary financial burdens on our friends. Our kids will be the only "wedding party" we have.
His 12 year old daughter will be our "flower child"... she has informed me that she wants a dress that will flare out when she twirls 😂. My 5 and 8 year old boys will be our sign bearers. My friends will be wearing our wedding colors, dark green and/or gold, and supporting us from their seats. I mentioned it, they wanted to do it.
I don’t know that it’s any different from most that have a wedding party. It’s not your bridesmaid’s job to help plan, and no one is as interested in your wedding as you are. My fiancé and I are planning everything ourselves, but we prefer it that way so we can ensure we get the day WE want.
I didn't have a wedding party. My partner and I chose to plan (and pay for) everything ourselves to keep things simple and to avoid all the extraneous opinions we didn't want. It worked beautifully. I recommend embracing the freedom of knowing your own mind and executing your own plan without outside interference.
We aren’t having a wedding party. It is my first wedding and his second. I have more very close friends than he does so rather than cutting people we went with no one. Sometimes it is a little lonely but in many ways it is has been a meaningful way to becoming much closer to my partner. Making and having friends outside your relationship is important but the wedding is about you and your partner.
I'm so sorry to hear this! That sounds like a much bigger problem than not having a wedding party. I would step back from any actually planning and focus on getting on the same page with your future spouse. It's so important to learn to work as a team, when getting married and for the whole of your marriage.
He was, yes (we are already married). We had a lot of discussions about what we both did and didn't want, and then we divvied up the tasks to get it done. Obviously, everyone is different, but I personally wouldn't have wanted to marry someone who "doesn't really care."
