I'm an introvert and keep my social circle extremely small. I like being alone and I don't need to be around people that often. And I'm ok with that. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, it's just who I am.
however, my boyfriend is extremely social. He has a ton of friends. Recently we were talking about getting married and having a wedding. And it got me thinking, I don't really have anyone to be a bridesmaid, let alone more than 1. I have maybe a dozen friends.
I dont know. I mean who do you invite to a wedding if you don't have any? And certainly no wedding party. I don't even have any sisters and cousins.
Anyone else ever worry about this if you keep your social circle small?

I've thought about this too actually. I'm like you- quiet, only a handful of actual friends. Honestly just talk to your boyfriend about a small wedding. That way you can invite your close inner circle and he can pick out the closest of his larger group. Not only do you both feel equally surrounded by loved ones but a small wedding almost feels more special if you ask me. Either way, it's your wedding day, so I'm sure it'd turn out perfect no matter what!1

I attended a wedding last year that was your situation but reversed. The only attendees from the groom's side were maybe 1-2 friends and then his immediate family (mom/dad) while the rest of the 50 person wedding party were all of the bride's friends. Even though that was the case, we all knew and met him before and even though we weren't close with him, we were friendly and included him in conversation. His friends, if they're truly his friends, will want to accept you because you are someone important to him and they care about him. They will try to make you feel at home and invited. So I don't think you have anything to worry about.1
