Both of my parents are deceased, as are several of my husband’s aunts and uncles. However, my mom was the only one we mentioned in the ceremony. My dad died when I was only 4, and my husband wasn’t close to any of his aunts or uncles. Whereas I was so close to my mom that had we honored other people in the same section, it would have felt inappropriate to me. (I’m not wording that correctly, but hopefully you get what I mean.)

I think if your Fiance is fine with it – you should do it.  Will you potentially offend someone?  Probably.  Most wedding decisions usually do.  But, I think it’s a beautiful way for you to pay honor to your grandmother… who was more than just a grandmother to you.

We will definitely pay tribute to FI’s mom in some way, but I don’t think we’ll say anything about grandparents…7 of our 8 grandparents have passed away and the 8th probably won’t be able to make it. Not that they aren’t important, but I didn’t know 2 of my grandparents and Fiance didn’t really know some of his either…I don’t want to overly bring down the mood and for us, it works best to only mention FI’s mom.
