Set up a google+ account for both of you or skype, then she can still be there without being there.  We did this for a shower once – we all sent the gifts in the mail and the host sent us all envelopes with the game cards in them and we all got to participate.  She would be able to at least see you get married!

@indibee: Awwww, bittersweet for sure! Congrats to your friend 🙂 I’d be bummed too. This happened with my brother, though a bit of a different situation. I think you can go either way with the bridal party…. * HUGS *

I agree that it would seem awkward/rude to add someone else at this point – I think leaving her in the program with a little note sounds like a very sweet and perfect idea. Make sure you send her a copy =)

I’d say just go with the uneven numbers.  My fiance and I have had 5 girls and 6 guys from the start and honestly, it hasn’t created any real issues.

Try and set up SKYPE or TANGO so she can watch from her couch– I did that for my brother who is in hospice- and he really felt part of the wedding- even though he could not be with us.
