    </div>Ditto to awick.<div>
    </div><div>I understand that you want a no children reception but if your MOH can't find or afford a sitter or if she is OoT I can see why your MOH is having problems. So like awick said, help her find a sitter she is comfortable with, let the child come, or be prepared for your MOH to back out (and don't replace her if she does). </div>

    The only thing I can think of is to try and help her find a sitter that she is comfortable with. But in the end you will have to dicide which is more important; your maid of honor being there or not.

    Ditto pp. There's not much you can do. There are 3 options and you won't like two of them. ;) I hope you get it worked out though. :)

    Why can't she find someone? Is it a destination wedding?

    Well, help her find a sitter, either elsewhere or AT the wedding/reception.
