Yep, I was going to suggest skype. I once saw a wedding on tv where the bride’s mom lived in another country and couldn’t come, so they had a guest hold up an i-pad and record the ceremony. Since they did this through skype they put it on video chat, which allowed her to see the entire ceremony live. It was so sweet!!

I wouldn’t skype her in— the attention you pay to the technology and to the missed guest will only take away attention from those who are actually attending. I would set time in your schedule that day to call her privately (either just you, or you and your fiance) before the wedding, and make a solid plan for dinner together or some other activity, a few days after her release from the hospital. Since baby will be tiny then, maybe offer to come over and cook dinner at her house. That gives you an evening together to share.

I’m glad to hear that she and baby are okay. I’m sure she is very disappointed to not be able to attend and I think it’s so sweet that you are trying to still keep her involved.

It sounds like you are open to technology, what if one of the other bridesmaids held a phone or ipad and you could skype or facetime with them during the ceremony. Then they would still be there “standing up” with you. If you don’t want to be that out of the box, you could also have one of the guests in a row close to the front do this.

Good luck! (P.S., we’re date twins!)
