I’m so sorry to hear this. Would husband’s grandma be able to attend the ceremony if she is in the hospital? If she would not be able to attend, I would go ahead with what you’ve planned. Since you are already married, could you have the priest perform a blessing at the hospital? Can you ask your husband’s parents what they think?

I honestly don’t know what I’d do. I think if possible you should discuss it with Grandmother and see if she has a preference. Take care.

Oh goodness! First, I’m sorry and wish I could give you hugs. I think you should talk to him about how important it is to both of you to have her there and if you could possibly pull it together in time. My only worry with that is without having any sort of time frame it could happen before you get everything together. You could also ask her how she feels about it. My FI’s father didn’t want us to change our plans, he just wanted us to do what made us happy that was enough for him.

Sorry to hear the news about your Grandmother-in-law  I’m sure it’s a very emotional time for everyone in the family.  I would probably approach your GIL and see what she prefers, as well as your husbands parents (related to Grandmother).  I really like rileyjane’s idea of having a priest perform a blessing at her bedside in the hospital.  This way she would feel part of your celebration of love.  Hugs!

I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. I would agree with the bees above, find out if your grandmother will be able to attend. But if it were I would go ahead and move everything up asap and if its a small backyard wedding, I am sure you can arrange everything for a small reception too. Also, if you share your story and reasons, some vendors might even be able to work with you regarding refund or change of date. Goodluck!
