One of my bridesmaids just found out that she is due with her first child two days after my wedding. While I am so excited and happy for her, it brings me to a dilemma. She openly told me that it is up to me whether or not I wanted her to still be in the wedding party. I would LOVE for her to still be there and be a bridesmaid, but I don't want to ask too much of her. I answered back to her saying that I didn't care whether she was 9 months pregnant or not, I would love for her to share in this day with my husband-to-be and I. Whether she was beside me or sitting in a pew, I wanted her to be comfortable.
She is going to talk with her doctor to get more information, and seek his/her opinion. I am trying to brainstorm what to do either way. If she decides she is more comfortable sitting, I want to acknowledge her bridesmaid status as well as get another bridesmaid to fill the spot. Is this okay to ask? On the flip side, if she does decide to stand up with me, what can I do to make the day more comfortable for her?
