Is it wrong to not have a wedding party? I had too many friends and family and my fiancé and I just wanted us two up there the day of. But we have family saying to just have one MOH and one Best man. Is it rude to not have any at all?
Not rude at all! Initially we were only doing MOH, which is my sister, and Best Man, which is his dad but we added one bridesmaid and a groomsman so that we could include two of our close friends. But if I’m going to be honest, I don’t think a wedding party is necessary. From a planning perspective, you will save time and energy! The one positive aspect is assigning duties for the day of but you can always ask for help without giving them a “title.” Do what feels best for you!
No! Do what makes you happy. I honestly wasnt sure that I wanted any attendants but FH really wanted to have a couple of groomsmen so we decided to just keep our wedding party very small. I only have a MOH and one bridesmaid, and somedays I wish I had just stuck to the no wedding party plan. Sometimes more opinions just overcomplicate things.
Hey! I don’t think it’s rude at all. I have asked a similar question in here too. We are not having a wedding party, just us and our 2 children up there with us. We decided to have an “I do crew” but we aren’t going to have actual titles and appoint people to be “in” our wedding. It’s your wedding, so what you want 😊❤️
I wasn't going to have a wedding party either because I didn't want to rank friends, make them buy dresses, etc. But then I started to regret it when I had no one to throw me a shower or bachelorette party (stupid and selfish I know, but I started to worry that I was missing out on the wedding experience with my dearest friends). In another vein, I postponed my wedding and I now have a year to go. After going through the mess of postponement, I don't feel bad AT ALL in recruiting friends to buy overpriced crappy dresses to be in my bridal party. Plus, with the extra year, all involved have time to save money to afford the added expenses of a bridal party (for them, the dress and maybe shoes. For me, their hair and makeup, jewelry, bridesmaid gifts, etc). This pandemic has taught me that relationships are so important, and I want to be close to my friends on my special day. So I see it both ways then- the reasons for not having a bridal party and the reasons for doing it.
