My best friend is having a destination wedding in October. She asked me to be her one bridesmaid, which I said absolutely yes to. I have been there for her helping plan the wedding, join a gym, go dress shopping. Everything. I have even purchased my bridesmaid dress. The problem is, I just found out my mom will be going in to surgery the day I am to fly out, and will be in recovery until I fly home. I can't imagine not being there at her surgery, yet alone being out of the country tthe entire time she is in the hospital. Because of this, I feel it necessary to back out of the wedding. My family is extremely to me, and I wholeheartedly think hone is where I should be.
I just worry that it is wrong to back out so late. I know she has already bought our wedding jewlery, and even gifts. I don't want to upset my best friend, but she would have to understand. Right?
She is having a ceremony / reception back home in the spring, which I would like to still be part of. Is it wrong to hope that, after backing out of the main wedding?
I have so many feelings going through me right now, I don't even know what to think. I just know I need to break the news to her ASAP.
