BrideK2Wings :  Nope. But then I would wonder why she was coming to the ceremony and not the reception. I am not saying this isn’t a legit reason. I am saying that if I were her friend, it would feel like something weren’t adding up, and I would be upset.

I think your reasons make sense and it sounds like you’ve made up your mind, anyway. You should go for the ceremony with your mom and then go home to your dog. Just stick to what you’ve already told your friend, though – don’t tell her you feel unsafe about going to her party. Be gracious and show her how happy you are for her at the ceremony – a few kind words and a sweet note with your gift, and she’ll move on.
