To be or not to be

I have a friend who is getting married in October. She asked me a couple of months ago to be her maid of honor. At the time, I didn't really agree or disagree, but lately I've come to the conclusion I really don't want to be the maid of honor at her wedding. As time goes on, I find she is getting more and more selfish, only concerned with herself and this bothers me. I think if you are standing in someone's wedding it should be because you respect them and care about them a lot. I have lost most of the respect I ever had for her, and no longer even wish to attend the wedding. Also, I cannot afford to be in her wedding. Without hurting her feelings, how do I tell her this?

I know this is awful but when I have a decision I can't make I try to avoid the person . No person , no problem . I am terrible for this . I don't really know how in a nice way you could tell someone you don't want to participate in the wedding . Have you ever stood in a wedding before , maybe you could use that as your excuse that you have already done this before and think she should give one of her friend's that has never done this to be able to do it . Sorry wish I could be more helpful .

Actually I was maid of honor in her last wedding. Her husband passed away last year, so it's back to the altar. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad she's found someone to be happy with, I just don't want to participate :(
