If you feel so bad about not including her, why not include her?

If it’s a question of eneven sides, all three weddings I have been in have had uneven sides and it wasn’t a big deal at all.  You should have all the people standing up with you that you want there.

You don’t have to tell her she is not a bridesmaid. Just ask her to be something else. Like a greeter or a reader. You can just say, “We would be honored for you to do a reading at our wedding, we really want you to be a part of our special day”

If you are really concerned with hurting her feelings I would just have uneven sides.

I absolutely agree with mcnetn3! Do you not want to have an uneven number? If you present the question like…I know you are due really close to my wedding date, so if you can’t I totally understand…..and maybe she will decline because she will be too busy with the newborn.

I based my bridesmaids on who I couldn’t say no to!  just go ahead and include her!  I agree that it’s fine not to have an even number.

You could have her do a reading during your ceremony. By asking her in advance to do this should give her the hint that she isn’t a bridesmaid.
