Don't Want to Have Bridesmaids in Wedding

Sunday Confessional: I Want to Downsize My Wedding Party

This week's confession comes from our anonymous Confession Booth group in the TrèsSugar Community. Weigh in with your advice below.

While I have been a bridesmaid, and have even earned the coveted title of Maid of Honor at previous weddings, I have opted to not return the favor at my own wedding. I value my friendships with all my girlfriends, who are amazing women, but (and this is kind of a big but) they are not drama free! I want to minimize the amount of stress in my wedding planning from finding a bridesmaid dress that everyone loves and looks good in to who gets to plan what to must have a hot date to the wedding, etc.

Although I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings, I've already decided to only have my two sisters by my side on my wedding day. Here is the challenge that remains —some of my girlfriends think they will be in my wedding party, and I have not yet told them. I am hoping they will be understanding and supportive of my decision and not take it personally. After all, who really wants to invest in a fuchsia dress that will never be worn again.

There's lots of cool stuff going on in our community — join it, check it out, share your posts or advice in the great groups, and maybe we'll feature it here on TrèsSugar!
