Ok Angel, guest attendance does mean you support the marraige.  Not approve of it.  You should support your friend and wish them the best regardless.  If they wanted your opinion, they would ask for it. 

I was told my wedding is doomed and a friend of mine will not attend.  That makes me upset with the friend, not evalutate my relationship.  If you really want someone to rethink their decision tell them that you will support them either way, but that you have some concerns you hope they’ll consider.

I’m in the middle road camp. Is there a way you can have a heart to heart, but preface it with saying "no matter what, I will be here for you and support your decision… but first can i just say…" and then in the nicest most concerned way possible explain your feelings.  There is a thin line between concern and judgment … and many times, outsiders don’t see what happens in a relationship behind closed doors… so i think if she genuinely sees the concern, feels the love and knows its only b/c you love her and not judging her… then maybe you can speak your peace and just support her decision…?
