I am seriously considering not having a bridal party. What are your thoughts or advice

    Absolutely do whatever you feel is right. I'm about 40 days from our big day and as much as I love my girls they have only added to the headache. It has been very hard to coordinate and their attitudes towards the bachelorette party is dismal. Everyone will get too caught up in their own life to dedicate the time you'll want from them. If you don't nix it completely keep it small with maybe just a maid of honor!! Good luck

    I only have a MOH and it's the best decision I made for my wedding cuts the drama down so much !!!

    I'm only having two. I was going to do three. So small either way.

    I'm not having one. Less money you and them need to spend. Also, less stressful I think.

    Seriously, good idea. If I could do it all over again I'd go that route.

    You don't have to have one. If you do have one though I suggest keeping it small. I have a MOH and one BM and it has eliminated most drama

    You don't have to have one if you don't want to. I only have a MOH and one bridesmaid. It has helped decrease drama somewhat and cut down on costs.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with not having one. It's a lot of drama, especially when they aren't friends with one another. I ended up asking because the friends that I would have asked kept asking me about if I had asked any bridesmaids yet and I realized that they really did want to share the day with me.

    No WP for us. FH is walking down the aisle with his daughter and I'm walking with mine. Done!

    I am super happy with my decision to skip the whole bridal party thing. It's made everything so much easier.

    I'm opting to have a MOH (my sister), FG (my niece) and FH is on the fence about having a Best Man. That is just enough people to have to coordinate in my book. I'm already getting questions about if the dress of the MOH and FG need to match the Best Man and do our Mom's need to match. I'm about to tell them all to wear all black and call it a day. #one_less_decision.

    We don't have one, and don't regret it all. Saved up on money and stress. Do what you want, you don't absolutely have to have a wedding party on one hand, and on the other, if you do have one that doesn't necessarily mean it will lead to stress and drama.
