My grandmother and grandfather raised me, they were my entire world, and they both passed away a couple years ago. I'm going to have an engraved memory candle with their names lit during the ceremony and reception (near the guestbook table) and have pictures of them.
FI has two grandmothers who will be at the wedding, a grandfather with Alzheimer's that has had it for a while now in the nursing home (can't come to the wedding), and a grandfather who passed away when he was 8. I assume you don't do a candle for someone with Alzheimer's? He's not close to his grandfather that passed and isn't that interested in having a memorial thing for him since he didn't really know him.
My question is...is it rude to have a memory candle and picture for my deceased grandparents and not have anything for his grandfather(s)? I do plan on having some sort of a rose ceremony where roses are laid in empty seats in the front for my grandparents and his two grandfathers.
I just don't want it to look rude or to hurt the grandmothers?? Help!
