My Maid/Matron of Honor did not go to my shower and I’m absolutely okay with that.  Shower was in VA she lives in Seattle.  I’m sure she would totally understand, at least I would.

I think most reasonable people would understand. It’s a lot of money and time. You’re doing the best you can. Just make sure she knows that you’re there in spirit!

I think the bride will understand if you can’t attend. If I were you I would still participate as much as possible in the planning process though. I bet there are plenty of things you can do from afar, such as manage the guest list, send the invitations, field guest phone calls, create fun party games etc. I bet the other bridesmaids would be very relieved to have your help, and it would be a thoughtful gesture to the bride as well.

I think the bride would understand.  It’s a lot to expect someone to fly out twice in such a short period of time.  I think it’s awesome of you to contribute monetarily and I agree with snmcdowell in that it would be a thoughtful gesture to help from afar.

i would maybe surprise her to let her know u wished you could have been there, like have some flowers delivered, send an email video message or something saying how you wished you could have been there, have a friend bring a gift from you, you know, show that you can still be apart of it from far away.
