So Friend 1 is a bridesmaid and attending the ceremony, but not Friend 3? 

If Friend 3 is cool with not being a bridesmaid, she’ll probably be fine with not attending the ceremony, too.  Wedding ceremonies are boring and most people would rather attend the fun dinner/dancing portion anyway.

seames321:  We actaully had a few friends help us out with “odd jobs” on our wedding day. I made our cupcakes, so I had a friend put them out for us, another friend helped assist the photographers with our family pictures so they went quickly (got everyone organized for the next photo, so everyone was ready), another friend picked up a bouquet we gave out during the dance (to relatives that had been married for almost 50 years!!), another checked us into our hotel (had to be pre-arranged with the hotel).

Do you need someone to light candles at the reception venue? Does anything need to be taken to the reception hall during the day? Do you need someone to bring you lunch while you get ready? The last one might emphasize thefact that shes not invited to the ceremony, but if she understands that its “family only”, she might appreciate getting to hang out with you for a little bit while you get ready.
