What about brooches?  Some older ladies like them…

I did hankies for both my mom and my FI’s mom. Both my mom and dad are divorced and remarried so I got one for my Dad, too. I’m hoping my stepdad and stepmom aren’t hurt that they don’t get one. My Fi has assured me that his dad wouldn’t even want to receive a hanky so we didn’t get him one either. For my grandmas (both still living but can’t travel to our wedding), I purchased 2 of these little frames on etsy and I’m going to put pictures of each of them in the frames and attach it to my bouquet.

@hibiscusgirl: Good idea with the frames, so your grandmas can be there too 🙂 I just might take that idea too, my mom isnt coming to my wedding.

I honored my deceased grandmother by having one of her favorite crosses (from one of her many rosaries) on my bouquet.  I really felt her presence with me on our wedding day and thought it was a beautiful addition to my bouquet.

I bought a small but pretty brooch for each of our moms in our birthstones (his mom’s brooch was his birthstone, my mom’s was mine) and they loved them.  For my deceased grandmother that I was very very close to, we actually had our recessional song played in honor of her (it was “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra – her favorite singer/celebrity).  I also wore her wedding rings on my right hand.

I love the hanky idea also.  I’m getting my personalized handkerchiefs from an etsy shop also.  I liked the ones here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CoutureWeddingHankie.  I liked that this shop has a bunch of different styles of handkerchiefs so I can pick a different style for my mom and Mother-In-Law to make it even more personalized.  Good luck everyone!

Both my husband and I wanted to honor our grandparents so much, since none of them, unforutnately, were able to live to see us get married.  On our gift table, we placed framed photos of our parents and grandparents on their respective wedding days!
