so my maid of honor is my sister who lives in Ontario and i live in Alberta, she brought up to me last night that she doesn't think she can afford to come out but shes going to try. we still have 8 months till our wedding but i don't want to be left maid of honor-less so my question is has anyone been in these shoes? what did you do? i know my sister and i feel like she will leave it till the very last minute and either tell me shes not coming or expect that i will pay for her to come out. i love my sister but she hasn't helped with anything so far for the wedding and has just caused extra stress, she won't even be able to plan my bachelorette party, i tried to bring up to her politely that she could come as a guest and that she wouldn't have to stress about making it out here and having to pay for all the things that included being a bridesmaid but she didn't seem to thrilled with that idea. But i don't have a back up option for a bridesmaid either. what do i do?
