Will you have your closest friends and family standing up by your side? Or are you keep it simple and skipping the extra stress? Are you saying yea or nay to the wedding party?

    Yes! I will have 5 beautiful bridesmaids next to me, and my fiancé will have at least 3 “groomspeople” - so far he’s chosen his best man, and one “groomsmaid”

    Yupp... I wanted even numbers so bad... but it was never going to happen... haha. I moved as a kid, so I have 1 really close girl friend, and then my sisters. My FH lived in the same city for his whole life, and he loves his friends like brothers. I have 3 bridesmaids (supposed to be 4 but friend can't come back from school in England), my FH has 7 groomsmen.

    Yes. We're having a tiny wedding party (my sister and his two best friends), but it's definitely enough for us.

    We’re doing a really small wedding party. My sister will be my MOH and my FHs brother will be his best man.

    My fiancé and I said “nay.” We don’t want the extra expense or stress, especially considering we're only inviting our closest family and friends to the wedding to begin with.

    Yes to a wedding party. After careful thought, I have kept my party as family only. I know some of my friends will complain or be hurt by the decision but it’s not their day.

    We're having a maid of honour and a best man, but that's it. Too many hurt feelings involved in the selection process of our friends and families' parties.
