Solo Duo?

Any of you opting to not have a bridal party?  What made you come to that conclusion?  How about just a Maid of Honor & Best Man?  Only a flower girl & ring bearer?  Let's talk about it?

We're just having a MOH and BM. We're both 39 and just don't feel the need for a big wedding party. We'll also have my then 3yo niece be our flower girl, but that is more because he is English and you "just don't have a wedding without kids in it". We don't know any boys who are the right age, or I'm sure we'd have a ring bearer too.

We have 2 MOH and one BM - but one of the MOH's is my mom. we really made that decision to not have a large wedding party because we don't have the space for it (we're getting married in this little gazebo at the end of our back yard), and because we want focus to be primarily on us. we weren't going to have any wedding party at all until we realized that we need help with things on our wedding day. (ex: best man handling the rings, maid of honour helping the bride.)

We're having a best man, a matron of honor, two groomsmen, and two bridesmaids.  FH wanted a huge number of GMs at first, but I talked with him about it, and we settled the number to something more manageable.  We chose people who meant a lot to us.  We chose not to have an RB or FG because we didn't know very many little kids and we didn't see a reason to have them for our ceremony.

I actually have five groomsmen and four bridesmaids. I started out with six groomsmen and six bridesmaids. For that reason in hindsight I wish I had limited it to just MOH and BM. Trying to get people to cooperate has been the most painful part of the planning process. Ugh!

I originally wanted it to be just me, FI and our kids in the ceremony. HOWEVER, he insisted on having the big wedding party. Now we have 3 BM & GM, MOH, BM and FG and RB. Our wedding party members has changed twice already and here we stand at 22 days from our wedding and it might be changing AGAIN. Needless to say... I wish I would have went with my original plan! :)
