You could ask her to do a reading at the service, or if she is musical to play a piece?

I like the reading idea.  Then she can also be included in the rehearsal dinner which will make her feel like she is a special part of your day.

I have a similar problem. I’m thinking about asking my non-BM friend to join me (and the BMs) for breakfast/brunch and our hair appointments. I’m considering asking her to do a reading, but we haven’t discussed ceremony specifics, so I don’t know how many readings we’ll have to give out, and I don’t want to offer her something that I’m not 100% sure I can give. Hope that helps!

@Indecisivebride2012:  yeah I’m not paying for anyone to have their hair done (as I’m not requiring them to have it done) but we will have the salon to ourselves, and I figure even if she decides to do her own hair, who doesn’t like some mimosas on a wedding morning?! Plus, my friend in question is pretty obsessed with her hair, so it is also fitting that she might want to be included in this part of my day 🙂

@Indecisivebride2012:  Personally when my friend asked me to take part in the service I saw it more of an honour than a favour, but I understand what you may mean because my friend was so apologetic, but I was totally over the moon!  Will you be making a speech?  I would include her in that and thank her publicly for all that she has done.  You could also give her a little gift (an engraved bracelet or something?)  with a beautiful friend-inspired phrase.
