A. I think the best way to approach this situation is to talk to your friend and try to be honest. Explain that you really want her to relax and enjoy your wedding day as a guest and not feel as though she has to work. Maybe ask if she would mind holding on to your make-up on the day and assisting you with touch ups when needed – that way she will still feel included, but you can hire someone else for the morning of the wedding.
