Honouring our Grandparents on our Wedding Day

Hello Everyone!

Just looking to get some ideas to do something special for my grandparents on our day.

We decided to post-pone our day from June 5th 2021 to June 4th 2022 and just realized our new wedding date is a special one! My grandparents will have been married for 62 years on our new date Smiley smile

We would like to do something special to honour them on our new day but are having a hard time deciding on what to do! As of right now all I can think of is having them join us part way through our first dance.

Any ideas will be appreciated!

    At the same time or after so they get their picture taken too. You can work it the way see best.

    Take the cake idea one step further and maybe get them their own anniversary cake to cut at the same time you cut yours or slightly after?

    My Fiance and I have decided on lapel pins one of my grandmother and one of his mother who have passed on. I have decided to take it a little further and the lining of my tuxedo will have a custom lining that has a photo of my grandparents both of who I lost within the past two years.

    Your grandparents mean so much to you that you would go out of your way to do something for them to be recognized. Your wedding can be memorable by toasting to them during the speech and asking them to cut the cake too as they can have their celebration part of yours. It will be a nice surprise for them not knowing your doing this and making you feel good to share their celebration. Another way is the rehearsal dinner, if considering this option to make a speech to them and having a cake for them to cut.

    That sounds like a lovely idea!

    We are getting our grandparents Corsages and Boutineers (In Purple) so they are recognized as IMPORTANT on that day - We also told them to stand with us in our receiving line but other then that we haven't gone over and above... I do want them to feel special as well.

    Maybe have a special dance with your grandparents instead of breaking up your first dance? I am not sure just shooting out ideas here lol

    At my cousin’s wedding, the DJ played an old waltz after the first dance and invited everyone on the floor, then slowly couples were called off based on their anniversaries until my great aunt and uncle were the only ones left. They were married 65 years at the time and that was the way my cousin wanted to nod to their long lasting marriage. We all thought it was super sweet.

    My first thought was asking them to offer some advice at the reception (like a speech) then present them with a little gift!
    Or instead of doing a bouquet toss, give your bouquet to your grandmother
