I live in California and will be getting married in September 2014. I asked my sister to be my maid of honor, I also have 4 bridesmaids, two live on the east coast, one lives in Finland and one lives in Hong Kong. The two who live out of the country were exchange students that lived with my family while I was growing up. My fiance has one best man and four groomsmen.
Here is my problem, the girl that lives in Hong Kong is unsure if she'll be able to be in the wedding now because she is starting a new job next month and will need to wait a couple months before she can request time off. The other girl who lives in Finland is pregnant with her second child and is due three months before my wedding and told me last night when I spoke with her that because she doesn't know what will happen that I should plan the wedding as though she won't be in it. So, now I don't know what to do! Although I know it won't be the end of the world if my wedding party ends up being uneven I hope that won't be the case and most importantly would love for them to be there and celebrate the day with me! I haven't found any dresses yet and I don't know if I should wait until I get a definite answer if all of my bridesmaids will be in the wedding or if I should plan on only having 3 girls and figure out what to do if later on one or both of them tell me that they'll be able to make it.
Has anyone else had a similar situation or have any advice on what I could do? Any help would be great!
