Tell her congratulations and go pick out some cute onesies for the future little one. 

If you’re worried about the dress, call wherever you ordered it from and ask them to order you an extra bolt of fabric so a seamstress can expand it to fit.

cincakes:  I think it’s safe to say she’s just going to be guest, if that. She may not be able to go at all. Which sucks but hey bright side is after you have you’re wedding you have a new baby to go visit!

cincakes:  Be excited for her! Then, help her pick  a dress that will fit at that state of prgenancy, then accept the fact that she may or may not be able to attend the wedding.

If hse hasn’t yet deliveredd on your wedding date, she may be too tired to stand through the ceremony. If she wants to be there as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, be prepared to make accomodations so she can sit down after the processional for example.

Be happy for her and give her the option to just come as a guest.

Aw – I’m sorry one of your besties might have to miss your big day. 

I think the best thing to do is to ask her how she’d like to approach it. Does she want to just drop out now, or does she want to still try to be there? Just know that things may change as the date gets closer.

I can see how this might be a hiccup in the plans, but I can’t imagine how it’s a dramatic issue.  Allow her to be a guest or let her sit for the ceremony.  She can still come and enjoy herself!

I would play it by ear. If, closer to the wedding, she is comfortable enough to walk down the aisle then that’s what she should do. If she has had her baby, then she may not be able to attend. She may feel more comfortable coming as a guest or even walking down the aisle, but sitting in the front row instead of standing the whole time.

I would be so excited for your good friend and ask her what she is confortable with. It’s not the end of the world if she can’t make it…she has a good reason 🙂
