@creeative1:  I am worried that it may come off as if you are remembering someone who may have passed away. So I am editing the verse I put in my program so it doesn’t come off that way.

Although you cannot be here today

You are in our thoughts as we say ” I Do”

Forever in our hearts, forever in our lives

is where you’ll always stay.

as we say our vows today

We lovingly honor




I don’t know if this is good enough, maybe you can edit it to your liking

Is she going to be able to watch the ceremony even though she won’t be there?

How about something like “We regret the loss of those who can not be here today: AAAAAAAAA, BBBBBBBBBB, CCCCCCCC, DDDDDDDDDD and EEEEEEE. And Creeative1’s Grandmother will also be in our hearts today, even though she can not be in the room.”

@creeative1:  You could have two sections:

Those who are with us in memory: groom’s father and aunts

Those who are with us in spirit: _____     ______, bride’s grandmother. Unfortunately health and distance prevents her from joining us here today, but we know she is with us in spirit.

@creeative1:  Ah, ok. I was going to suggest something like Julies1949’s idea. I think it would be a nice way to phrase it that makes sure people know your grandmother is alive, just not there. Sometimes people phrase it in a way that suggests otherwise.
