My fiance and I are getting married January 28, 2012. One of our bridesmaids (and a very close life long friend of mine) recently found out that she is pregnant and due on or around January 9th, 2012.
I am beyond ecstatic for her and her husband, and can't wait to welcome their new little life with open arms. She and I talked about it and agreed to play it by ear and see how her pregnancy goes, and see if she wants to still be in the wedding when the time comes.
As the news is shared with other friends and family members, they act like I should ask her not to be in the wedding, or that she should volunteer to step down. A few even seem to imply that I should be angry or hurt that her due date is so close to our wedding... and think it's strange that I'm not. As far as my fiance and I are concerned, the decision is hers, but we will have no hard feelings if a wedding is too much for a brand new mom (or super pregnant mom to be) to deal with, but if she's up for it, we won't vote her out.
I think we can wait and see what happens... how should I tell our "helpful" friends that it isn't their business? And is it okay to have her wait and see if she'd like to participate?
