@Grizz:  Tell her that you understand, and it’s sad, but her family comes first.  Perhaps you could put her name in the program anyway, and the day of, you could send her some flowers in an arrangement similar to what she would be carrying as your Maid/Matron of Honor.  She would probably feel very honored.

@Grizz: Just wanted to let you know what a breath of fresh air this post is. A lot of brides (not just on here, but in general) would have lamented that their Maid/Matron of Honor was ruining their day – you seem to be showing a genuine love for your friend, rather than just focusing on the wedding as your day and your day only. Major props – as a bee planning her wedding, I really hope that I can keep such a level-head about it, too.

Thank you for this post, one of my best friends is unable to afford travel expenses to come 1300 miles to be a bridesmaid. I want to include her as well, and I might follow the two ideas here, to have someone skype her the day of, and to also send her some flowers similar to the ones my bridesmaids will be carrying with a note of significance. 🙂
