I wouldn’t ask her. I don’t think there’s a way to do it that won’t make her feel like a back-up plan. Sorry. 

I would just proceed exactly as planned, but with one less bridesmaid.

I’d probably put a picture of Brides maids and a bride with one bridesmaid missing and quote…something like “something is missing…could it be you?” Or something..Heck I dunno that may be tacky.

niawa41:  I would pick up the phone, call her and tell her how excited you will be if she will agree to step up to be a bridesmaid. Don’t text or email. the least you can do is speak to her in person. Personal contact will outweigh the cuteness factor.

I also suggest that you pick up the cost of the alterations, as she will be doing you the favor and has had no opportunity to save up for this expense.

Why don’t you mail her the dress wih a nice card? It’s always nice getting packages and cards in the mail! I would not have her continue with the other duties as this is probably too much, can you have another cousin or aunt fill in?
