Sadly from the history of 3 weddings, I would guess that daughters and maybe other friends have already indicated they wouldn't love to be in wedding #4 for whatever reason -- don't like the "fiance", tired of doing it, or Coworker is the biggest bridezilla whenever she gets married. BeagleMommy's wording is good. Don't give any excuses that can be argued with.
But, as others have said, all she has to say is "I'm honored that you asked, but I'll have to decline." She doesn't have to give a reason. And if she absolutely feels that she must, she can tell the truth. "I'm uncomfortable mixing my personal and work life."

And if she absolutely feels that she must, she can tell the truth. "I'm uncomfortable mixing my personal and work life."She doesn't have to give an excuse, but if the reason she's being asked is because the bride thinks she'll be in a better position to host parties (as suggested above) mentioning tight finances will nip that in the bud.
If this woman says she's engaged its pretty darn petty and snarky to assume she's actually not just because she's not wearing a ring. A ring isnot required to be engaged. Not at all, ever, and certainly not every single moment of engagement. If she's engaged she's engaged, ring present or not. Period. If there is other reason to think she's not engaged so be it. but a ring on layaway is not a sign that she's jumping the gun and lying about actually being engaged.As for being a MOH, your friend should simply thank the woman for the honor of being asked but apologize and say she's ever so busy these days and money is tight and she simply must decline. Any further discussion should just be met with "I'm sorry but its not possible" over & over.
