My sister is one of my Maid/Matron of Honor and she is planning on moving to Houston (From Los Angeles) in October. In talking with her last night about some of the wedding things I wanted to do, she advised me that she wanted to be included in EVERYTHING and would TRY and fly back for some of the things.
She said that her feeling would be hurt if she could not be apart of some of these processes. She does not have a true moving date because she needs to save some money to do so…. So Im wondering the best way to handle this? I dont want to put off stuff because her feelings would be hurt if she is not apart but I know there is some things she wont be here for. She is also saying that she might have to consider pushing her move date back, should I encourge that?

My sister and her 3 children which are all in my wedding just moved in to their new home in Texas and I am in Arkansas. She said the exact same thing to me, leaving out the feelings part.
You need to make sure that your sister understands this is your day. Stuff should not be put off because she can’t make it. I have been fighting with not hurting my other bridesmaid feelings, and then I realized by worrying about their feelings I was being hurt.
Everything that I wanted her to be at, I did before she moved. For me, there isnt that much a bridesmaid needs to be there for though. We went and got her dress, her 2 girls dresses, her sons tux, and my dress in the 2 months I had from engagement to today when she left. Now all that is left over is bridal showers, bachelorette party, and my wedding that she will come up for. (The wedding date is also her birthday) haha! but she didnt mind that!
