I have two sets of grandparents that are in their late 80’s and I already know they are not in great health to make it to my wedding in another city. I’m planning on DIY some boutonnieres and corsages for family that isn’t in the wedding party. The wedding party will have fresh flowers in theirs so it’s only half DIY.
My question is, should I still give my grandparents one even though they won’t be there? If I do, I don’t know when I should give it to them. Thoughts?

ohhmaigosh: I wouldnt. I would instead vist with my wedding photos and share stories of the day with them.

weatherbug: that sounds like a great option. I wonder if there’s anything else I can do to make them feel included on my day?

ohhmaigosh: I think going over there to show them the pictures and video is a great idea. Sending them the flowers…. although sweet, they may not even realize what you are trying to say.
I would make the time on your wedding day to call them on the phone, tell them how much you love them and how much they will be in your mind in such an important day. This way they will really feel appreciated and included.
Sorry they can’t make it OP.

ohhmaigosh: Do they have a neighbor or friend who is savvy with technology? Any way you could skype/facetime the ceremony to them?
