One's wedding day is supposed to be one of the most remarkable moments in a person’s life. However, one friendship was recently destroyed after a maid of honor failed to show up to her friend’s wedding.
According to a report by Mirror UK, a British national daily tabloid newspaper founded in 1903, a wedding set in Scotland was supposed to be a dream come true for the bride. However, right after the bride asked her friend to take on the role of the maid of honor, she found out that the maid of honor was pregnant with her first child.

The mom-to-be maid of honor posted about it on Mumsnet, an online platform where mothers connect with one another. She said that she is due towards the end of March 2020 and her friend's wedding will happen in very early June 2020. When she found out that she was carrying a child, she immediately talked to her friend and told her about her situation.

She explained that it would not be appropriate for her to travel to Scotland while carrying a newborn, either by plane or by car. She apologized a lot and said she regrets not being able to attend her friend’s wedding.
“I have also said that I’m happy to come on her hen do as long as it is in a reasonable venue due to being heavily pregnant when it takes place.” Unfortunately, the bride expressed her disappointment with the pregnant lady’s unwillingness to go clubbing on the hen do. The bride also told her that things can still work based on her plan because it's possible to have fun without drinking.
Most people in the comments on the mom-to-be's post sided with her friend. “Went on a plane with my first, who was about five months old. Then I went again when I had a toddler and a 10-week-old. You’re not the first to have a baby, you’re not the last. If you were my friend, I'd be really hurt and think you were selfish.”
