One of my bridesmaids couldn’t make it to my wedding because she was scheduled for a C-section just a little over a week afterwards, and travel just was not a good option. She is one of my best friends and it was hard to imagine my wedding without her. Believe me though that she hated that she had to miss it. Let her know that you’ll miss her and wish she could be there, but that you completely understand her situation. It’s okay for her to know that she’ll be missed as long as no guilt is being portrayed in the action.

I totally worry about this same thing – My Future Sister-In-Law, who will be my Maid/Matron of Honor, is getting married about a year before us… They are going to be our wedding party and I know she wants to get pregnant very soon after the wedding, if not before!  I would support her, but of course I want her to stand by me.  

You arn’t being unreasonable… Just explain that you want her with you.  The baby is out, so she could go… just be gentle and supportive.  I know it’s your time, so hopefully she can understand and be there for this once in a lifetime event!

I pushed back my wedding two months so my best friend could attend (she was going to be giving birth in the month that my wedding was supposed to be)… is that an option for you?

another route to go would be to tell you completely understand that she might not make it & if that is the case, if she could be extra supportive/there for you for all the pre-wedding events that are local – like your bridal shower and/or bachelorette party.  You might get the opportunity to be really creative with your Bridal Party – I’m in a similar situation (most of the babies are out, but my girls are all moms), so instead of the “traditional” Bridal Party of clubs & drinking, we’re doing a “slumber party” making rice krispie treats (some to take home to kids), private manis & pedis, & private karaoke…all at one of my girls’ parents’ house (they have a hot tub, too!).  Maybe something like that will let you include all your preggo friends, at least at the pre-wedding bashes.
