@marci81:  

That’s hard!  I would ask her if there is any way that she would drive with some of your other family.  If she is important to you, you should really try to make her understand that she has options other than flying.  Sounds like she is probably going through a hard time with the money situation; and doesn’t feel comfortable taking anything from anyone.  Maybe you could talk to your parents about offering her a wedding loan, so she doesn’t feel like it is a gift.  I don’t know…  just brainstorming.

@marci81:  If you do have to go with the friend instead, I would just be honest with her.  I would not feel bad if someone told me I was going to take their sisters place if I knew this story.  Sister’s always come first and I think you friend would understand and be greatful that you thought of her to replace such an important person to you.
