I started working on planning out the ceremony and I’m not sure what to do about the seating of grandparents and parents.
Between the two of us, we have 1 grandparent and 2 parents. My grandfather is living in another state, and isn’t doing so well, and to be honest, I’m not sure if he will be able to make the wedding or not. And then, we have my dad and FI’s mom. My dad is walking me down the aisle, so that just leaves his mom.

First, I hope your grandfather’s situation improves so that he can be with you on your special day if that’s important to you. If he attends and is physically able, he could walk down the aisle first and be seated. If he’s not physically able or doesn’t want to draw attention to himself, he could already be seated on the front row when the ceremony begins. Yyour groom could walk his mother down the aisle, seat her on the front row to the right and then take his place at the front. If you have attendants, they would follow next. Then your father would walk you down the aisle and take his seat on the front row, left side. Depending on how important music is to you, you could use a different song for seating his mom and perhaps cut it off early. We are using the first part of the Feather Theme from the Forrest Gump soundtrack to seat grandmothers and mothers, something different for the bridesmaids and a third selection for the bride’s entrance. Hope that helps, and hope you are surrounded by people you love on your special day!

@JacobsMama: Why doesn’t he walk his mom down the aisle?! they can walk down, she can sit, & he can go stand at the alter, how cute would that be
