I was recently married on August 3rd and had the wedding of my dreams. I hope everyone reading this has an amazing wedding day too.
Now onto my question, one of my bridesmaids cancelled via text ten days prior to the wedding. She lives in a different province and gave birth a month or so before the wedding. She was pregnant when she agreed to be my bridesmaid. We were planning on having no kids at our reception as per our invitation but of course, she would be the exception. Anyways, she cancelled ten days prior to the wedding and I’d be lying if I said my feelings weren’t hurt but I’m not a mom so I can’t imagine how difficult that would be.
I want to send out the items I purchased for her - a personalized satin robe, some cosmetic items and some other goodies.
But I feel weird sending out the card I had written to her prior to her cancelling. Thanking her for being there with me on my special day and celebrating alongside me. She didn’t help with anything wedding-related prior so I can’t thank her in the card for that. She did attend the bachelorette party but it seems odd to thank her for that? We didn’t receive a card or gift from them either so I can’t mention that. Please help - What do I say in her card?
I will be telling her I wished she was there and understand that she couldn’t make it. But what else? Anybody have any ideas?
