Thanks so much for the suggestions everyone. I went back and checked with the caterer and the food order has already gone through, so I guess money can’t be recouped. I don’t care much about that – and the seating and everything should be fine if we’re just down 1 person -mainly I’d just be sad I won’t get to see her, and sad she didn’t tell me (she knows it’s a small wedding like 50 people, there’s no way I wouldn’t notice her missing the day of).
I texted her telling her saying I look forward to seeing her, we’ll see what she responds.

So she got back to me, and explained that this situation came up very suddenly. Her uncle is having some kind of visa/green card emergency and that’s why he’s flying there. Her mother insisted that L stay and see the uncle because she has not seen him since she was a child. L didn’t want to tell me just yet since she is still going back and forth with her mom trying to figure out what to do, and didn’t want to upset me unnecessarily if she could end up coming.
She’s finalizing plans tonight and I’ll know by tomorrow. I do feel better now that I know what’s going on, seems pretty stressful for her.
