Well since presumably friends’ of both of yours will attend the wedding, you can try to make the final part of your reception a going-away party for her. You could announce it and make sweet speech. I think that’s what I would do, but I know some want the reception to be just about them, so it depends on your preferences. Or you could go out the night before your wedding for a bachelorette/going-away party. 

(Obviously, you can see that I enjoy coordinating celebrations with my good friends’, lol).

I found the last week before my wedding I really had nothing to do.  The week before my move, I nearly lost my mind.  Maybe if you have all your things lined up for your wedding, you could offer to help her pack?  Or give her a few weekends prior to the wedding to give a hand. 


I agree with PP, maybe make an announcement toward the end of  your wedding.  Maybe a thank you to everyone for coming and then a final farewell to your friends.

Perhaps throw her a going away party before your wedding. It may be a little stressful with planning a wedding too but you can do one mid to late May or June. Have it be something casual, maybe a fun potluck at someone’s house with some cute decorations (like homemade signs). Things like that don’t take a tremendous amount of planning and are sometimes more fun than fancier parties. I’m sure as your Maid/Matron of Honor and being very close to you it would mean so much to her if you did this, even if you can’t help her move.

I would throw her a party before your wedding. About a week or two out would be good.
