So sorry about your dear dad.

I’d drop out in your place . Also, I don’t think I’d make that  conversation too long and detailed and most of all, too much focussed on what she wants.   Rather , I’d  simply tell her that try as you might,  you just can’t  manage it on the new date and that you  hope she understands  etc etc .

It is  not , after all,  an actual real wedding, it’s just a kind of costume party, although admittedly an important one to her.

I wouldn’t drop out, but I wouldn’t take on any more responsibilities related. Show up in the dress and have a great time.

I am in graduate school currently and the first day in all my classes has never been that important anyways, and if you have a good excuse such as a wedding I would say as long as you discuss with your professor it would be fine.

Wait im lost why did you say sister instead of bff. I think most people get that a best friend often times is important as family and considered family in most cases.

pynkpanther83 :  I would mention the death in the family plus school and work but leave out graduations bc to many people these are dramatically less important than a wedding. I don’t think that’s always the case but I’m just saying a lot of people do. Say you want to be the maid of honor but for these extenuating circumstances, you feel that one of the bridesmaids would do a lot better job with the events plus you are stretching it even attanding the wedding.
