My family has a tradition where we have the wedding photos of out parents and grandparents flanking our engagement picture on a table by the guest book. My parents are divorced and I think it would be ackward to have their wedding picture, but I really want to have my grandparents for sure because we recently lost all 4 grandpa’s and we still have all 4 grandma’s. The shortest marriage for the grandparents we 62 years, the longest was 74. I really think that kind of love should be honored. Anyone have any ideas how I can do this without hurting anyone’s feelings, aka my mom’s?

Have you talked to your mom about this and are sure she really wants you to follow through with this tradition regarding their photo?
Could you place the photos in frams hanging from a branch/cieling/get creative…with your parents photo WAAAAAY up at the top?
Or a collage of everyone’s photos, all different sizes, with your parents being the smallest? Place it in a location where the eye doesn’t travel?
I think if your mom is going to be hurt the photo isn’t there and you’re worried about her feelings there’s no way around having it there just clever disguises.

i would just do the grandparents’ photos. you can call it a memorial.

I think you can still do it with just the grandparents photos. Explain that you would like to honor them in a special way. I think that your mom would appreciate the sentiment and still in keeping with the family tradition, but not causing any uncomfortable feelings.
