I am so sorry that you grandparents won’t be able to make it to your rehearsal and wedding. I have only one grandparent living, and she wasn’t able to make it our wedding either because of her health. I was devastated; however, I would rather her stay home and stay healthy rather than risk her traveling and getting sick and then something worse happen. I was very sad that she wasn’t their, but one of my aunties had a video camera, so I was able to do a video just for her. That made me feel a little better. I haven’t been able to ask her if she has seen it yet though because when I talked to her just after the wedding she was really tired. Maybe after the wedding you can go visit your grandparents. We are planning to visit grandma at the end of summer.

I am so sorry for you.  I agree though, your father will definitely be there. 

Why not talk with your grandparents.  Tell them how much it would mean to you to have them there – especially because your father (their son) can’t be there physically. Tell them just what you said in your post  – that they represent a deep connection to your father that you would like to have at the ceremony.

However, if they are in ill health, keep in mind that traveling to a wedding might actually be very hard for them.  I don’t know how old they are or what their condition is – butit is possible.  Neither my father (who has altzheimers) nor my fiance’s father (who has COPD) can make it due to ill health.

We are going to try to set up a skype camera for them.  Maybe you can do the same?

Good luck.

Awww, I’m sorry. Your father will be with you on your wedding day because he is always in your heart. I’m sure your grandparents really will try to make it to your wedding if they can.

I also really wanted my grandparents to attend my wedding (that is the main reason why I am having my wedding in Michigan) but they have said that they may not be able to come for health reasons. So I am going to be sure to visit them before or after the wedding in my wedding dress with pictures, so they can feel like they are a part of my big day. I know it will make them so happy to feel involved in my wedding in any way possible.

Is there any way you could do the same and visit your grandparents close to the wedding date?
