Wedding party or no wedding party?
I think large bridal parties are for kids right out of college, as in "Oh no! How am I going to choose only 3 of my 25 closest, bestest friends? I know! I'll ask ALL of my sorority sisters!" (This one works if the groom was in a frat - otherwise he only knows 4 dudes. And only 1 can afford a tux.)
But BF seems to think it's strange that I don't want any bridesmaids at all. And it's not like he has a bunch of friends he can't wait to ask and he isn't very close to his family. Weird. We're old. Keep it movin'. That's my thought.
