I am getting married in Georgia and most of my family is from the north. My paternal grandparents have informed me that they will not be attending. (Yes, this upset me.) My question to you is should i still list them on the program with the other grandparents? I don’t want people looking for them since they are listed but I also don’t want them to read the program from other family members who are attending and feel like I left them off to be spiteful.

I voted yes, only because I was recently in a wedding where the groom’s own parents couldn’t attend (but not for lack of trying – they live outside the country). The DJ introduced all the parents and grandparents at the grand entrance. Yeah it was weird to introduce some people who weren’t there, but I think it would have been more weird if they hadn’t mentioned the groom’s parents at all. It was a nice tribute to his parents to mention them even though they weren’t there.

They’re still your grandparent’s whether they are able to make it or not and should be listed / recognized as such in your program.
