I like the candle idea. Its subtle but you can definately understand the symbolism.

I am honoring my grandfather with my candy table.  He used to call me his “5 pounds of sugar” as I was a preemie (was born a month early and could not leave the hospital till I was 5 lbs…. which happend Christmas Eve).  I am going to make a sign that says something like, “Love is sweet!” “Enjoy some 5 pounds of sugar”.  I will also have photos of deceased grandparents/parents (FI’s mom died when he was 5).

You could just include it in your speech (if you do one) at the reception…..kind of “thanks everyone, you’re awesome, we’re awesome, marriage is awesome…and I learned a lot about marriage from my grandparents, and while grandpa isn’t here in body, he’s always here in spirit…because of how much I love them, I’d lilke to give my bouquet to grandma…”

Be sure you talk to your grandmother about it first.  I was going to have an empty seat with a rose on it by my grandmother’s seat at the ceremony in honor of my grandfater, but she asked me not to because she said it would make her sad.   I’ll just be doing a moment of silence for those not with us, and then the day after the wedding Fiance and I will go and put my bouquet on grandpa’s grave.

@nmsoonerbride: Could you write something in the program? “Thank you grandma and grandpa for showing us how a marriage should be.”
