Maybe you can Skype/Facetime her during the ceremony. Someone can hold up a laptop/iPad and she can watch the whole thing.

She can still join you for showers/parties prior to the wedding as long as they’re not too close to her due date and she can’t travel anymore.

Can you just bring it forward and have a gap between then and the honeymoon?

@iadornyou:  1000 km is pretty far and a really long distance for a pregnant woman to drive past 2nd trimester and flying is discouraged after a certain number of weeks. That would mean OP would have to bring her reception up to about the April – July timeframe. Sept would be 8 months along and I can’t imagine anyone wanting to travel 1000 km at that point.

@misscakeandtea:  I just want to say that kid is going to grow up to be an amazing individual! I was born on Oct 7th 🙂 I agree with @lilbluebird:  If you can Skype your ceremony, your sister would probably be thrilled, and you would feel better knowing she’s able to share in your wedding day.

skype her in! you can do that on phones now too, no reason she can’t be a part of the ceremony that’s what technology is for!

Definitely try to Skype/Facetime with her. I think that’s a great idea.

Bring it forward and have a gap. You could have her record a reading too.
