@lilhenry89:  I’m in a similar situation. My Boyfriend or Best Friend will have only just given birth about a fortnight before she stands up in my wedding. I’m worried about how she’ll cope all day long on limited sleep, regular feedings, a crying baby at the wedding, possibly even during the ceremony, not being able to enjoy the wedding like she would otherwise be able to do. But she insists on being there. 


In your case, just be prepared for her maybe not being able to make it… that would suck but nothing can be done to help it.

One of my BMs is due on our wedding day. It’s her 2nd. Its her decision what she wants to do. I wouldnt worry too much.

@lilhenry89:  OK then that’s not 9 months pregnant at October 13, that’s 8 months and a bit. I think there’s a good chance she’ll be there. Just be sure there’s a seat so she can sit down at any time. She doesn’t need to stand in the ceremony.

Put her name in the program regardless. If somehow she can’t come, well then she’s still honored as your Maid/Matron of Honor in the program.

I don’t see any need to invite her husband’s parents. Their connection to you is very tenuous and you’ve only met them once.

@lilhenry89:  I would just write your programs the way it stands now. Even if she isn’t there in the end listing her as Maid/Matron of Honor would be honoring your friendship. As for whether she will be there or not who knows? I went WAY overdue with all my children so other than feeling nauseous (which is normal…I get carsick) on the drive, I went everywhere and did everything right up until the day of.

I kinda feel a little sorry for your MOH- 6 hours of travelling time becomes more like 7-8 hours with a pregnant lady. Late in pregnancy you are always stopping to pee, and it isn’t comfortable travelling.

But with this in mind she must really love you, and really wants to be by your side at your wedding. You have one amazing friend!. Maybe you could organise a massage (shoulder/foot after she arrives/ before the wedding as a treat) I think that she will do anything to get to your wedding!

@lilhenry89:  I moved from nj to tx packed in a car for 30+ hours a week before my due date. It all really just depends on her commitment and what her doc says her body cn handle.

 My Maid/Matron of Honor  just had to drop out of my wedding  about a week  ago  due to this exact issue. i  of course completely understand,  but it doesnt make  it suck any less that’s for sure.  as the day gets closer,i  get sa dder about it  and i  know the day won’t be the same without her.  life happens though.  definitely be prepared for her not to be able to come.  my Maid/Matron of Honor  was the same way about being determined she would make it but deep down i  just knew it wasn’t going to happen.  she lives in Alabama  and our wedding is in southern California so she would have to fly.  not happening.  major bummer! i hope this didn’t happen with your MOH!
