Please is a bridal train a must. I would really like to keep it simple with just the best-man and chief-bridesmaid. Will this be weird? Thanks
Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!!! To answer your question, you do not need to have a large train. A simple train like you described is perfectly fine and not weird. Many a times, people go for large trains to either impress or to avoid omitting any of their friends from being an active part of their wedding. The smaller the train, the less people you have to worry about messing up or run after to ensure all will go smoothly. Having just a the chief bridesmaid and best-man is not something new and has been done for years. To each his/her own.
Remember, it is YOUR day!! So do what makes you happy, and gives you less headache. In the end, your guests will be more concerned about food and entertainment than be worried about something like the number of people on the train :)!
Have fun planning your day and please let us know if you have any more questions or need help with your planning!
