Oh no!  Maybe she will be able to make it.  I’ll keep my fingers (and toes) crossed for you.

@kate169: Im so so so sorry to hear this. I can only imagine how difficult this is!

Do you have other Bridesmaid or Best Man in the party, how many?

If i were you I would just leave it to just BM’s and in your program put your sister as the Maid/Matron of Honor still. Everyone knows how close you are and how much it means to you and i think it would be a nice sentiment for your sister to know that she “was there” (at the wedding).


The Bm who offered to be your understuday can  just help with the Maid/Matron of Honor tasks

i think having a backup on ypur bridemaids is such a good idea. if your sister make it to the wedding (wich it will be awesome), your friend could do something else.

I would say, don’t get a maid of honor if there isn’t any body that you think would fill the role. Take something from your sister down the aisle with you (it can be your something borrowed), ask her to register a message for you that you will play on your wedding day or as a toast, and maybe write something about your sister being your Maid/Matron of Honor in thoughts on the program.

I am so sorry she might miss that day, I can’t imagine my sisters not being at my side on my wedding day.

@kate169: I think calling her your Maid/Matron of Honor in the program is a wonderful gesture. I’m sorry she won’t be their in person.

The something borrowed idea is genius. Can you set up a webcam for the ceremony?

Your wedding is just over 3 months away. If your sister had to defer till she loses weight, is she able to put  off basic until after your wedding?
