- Wedding: May 2014
Both my FI and I have a grandparent that is in a wheelchair and we wanted to give them seating in the front row of our venue (seats of honor). I’m worried however about them being able to see properly if everything stands up when I walk down the aisle.
Just to complicate our problem, we are getting married in a historical mansion where I come down the stairs and turn the corner into the aisle (So it is L shaped but people can see the stairs so it is considered part of the aisle to me), so just putting the grandparents on the ends of the aisle doesn’t solve the viewing problem.
I never liked the tradition because I’m a shorty (5′ 2″) and could never see when the bride walked in at all the weddings I’ve been to so it wouldn’t bother me to skip it. I’m just wondering if anyone knows a tactful way to express, probably in the programs, for people to remain seated and if we should anticipate any animosity.
