Q: My MOH lives far away but the rest of my bridesmaids are nearby. Should I ask one them to take her place?

A: Don't ditch your number-one gal just because she's too far away to plan a proper party. Ask your other bridesmaids to take up the slack—helping with the wedding has always been part of their duties, too. Just be sure they keep your best friend updated on shower or bachelorette party ideas and other planning details.
