Maybe something in the program? Like a separate page… Or a separate small table with a photo and a candle? Or, you could reserve a chair and keep it empty, unless you think it would be too distracting during the ceremony. 

My aunt passed away a couple years ago, and I find that small visual displays have been a really good way to memorialize her and remember her, while not having an overflow of emotions. It’s possible, since you don’t want everyone crying (and I totally understand), that if you were to verbally recognize him, that could bring on the waterworks. 

Good luck, and I’m sorry for your loss. It’s never easy, no matter how much time goes by.

So sorry for your loss. Why don’t you put a framed wedding photo (or other photo) of your fiance’s grandfather and grandmother somewhere in the venue, like next to the guest book?

Or you could incorporate something he liked during the day, for example if he had a favourite drink you could have that as your signature drink or play his favourite song for your first dance.
