I was asked to be maid of honor for my best friend’s wedding in september. The wedding is out of state, with 150ish invitees. Long story short, I recently found out I am pregnant and my doctor doesnt think I should travel at all for the pregnancy, especially for large gatherings. It would be one thing to risk my own health, but I dont want to compromise the health of my baby. I told my friend and she was very understanding. I’m just feeling SO guilty and heartbroken. Has anyone else dealt with anything like this? Would love any insights people have on how I can make it up to my friend.

I love that your friend was understanding – that hasn’t always been the story on here. I don’t think you need to do anything to make it up to her, but if you really wanted to, maybe you could send her something special for the big day, like her “something blue,” or a perfume you know she’ll love.

I am sure your friend would want what is best for you and your baby- and I am sure you would do the same for her. If you want to involved you can maybe send something to eat or drink to whereever she is geting ready. That way your presence and care is felt on her special day. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I was kind of in your friend’s shoes. I had a destination wedding in Mexico and my Maid/Matron of Honor got pregnant and had a due date three weeks before my wedding. Of course I was bummed she could not be there but I understood completely and was so happy for her. I wasn’t mad at all, people have to live their lives.
