With a due date the week of your wedding… I think she’d be horribly uncomfortable. Of course, there are those out there who are happy-go-lucky types who can handle anything… but add to it that this was unplanned and she’s stressed… I think it’s probably best she’s not in the wedding. Maybe you can find another role for her (but something that if she has to bail out at the last minute, it’ll be okay). Sorry.

Honestly, it depends how far away your venue is from her home and in particular her doctor. That would be my biggest concern – you dont want to be hours away from where you plan to give birth just in case you go into labour. I just attended a family members wedding about a month before my due date and the most uncomfortable part for me was just trying to get comfortable sitting – and having to make sure I peed right before the ceremony lol. I think it is totally doable if she feels up to it and is not far from where she is giving birth – just in case 😉

Also, she could have the baby right before your wedding. My baby was 2 weeks early – some are late. It is difficult to plan for. Good luck! Even if she can’t be there you know she will be wishing you happiness!

My husband’s cousin was due on our wedding day. She didn’t end up coming to the wedding because she was just too uncomfortable.

I’d just give her an open invitation and she can see how she feels then. She may end up having the baby earlier so she may be home with a newborn or she may go several weeks past her due date and feel like getting out of the house at that point.

I don’t think I’d expect her to be part of the bridal party because when she’s that far along she probably won’t want to stand for long periods of time OR have to stand up in front of a lot of people. I know I wouldn’t. Maybe just include her in photos and at the table with the bridal party.

I have a best friend that is due the week of my wedding.  She doesn’t even think she will be able to attend, let alone be in the wedding party.
