Cute & Meaningful Ways To Involve Your Grandparents At Your Wedding!

BY Sakshi Saxena | 08 Nov, 2018

Your grandparents are so so special, and if they are around, you should make sure you involve them in your wedding and make them feel super special! If you're looking for ways to do that, then here are some sweet ideas which will go a long way- some big, some small, but all cute and meaningful. Plus, there are some ideas here for those who aren't with you anymore as well!

Wear something made by your grandma!

So this was a very cute idea! This bride wore a Benarasi lehenga, and the dupatta that she carried for her engagement was hand-stitched by her grandma! We think it's super cute and makes them feel loved and involved!

Have a smaller function in their backyard or garden

So this bride had her Mehendi and Chura ceremony in her grandma's house, which is a great way to honour them and make them feel special! 

Wear one piece of her jewellery for any of the functions!

This bride wore her grandma's jewellery for her haldi and Chura ceremony, and even though its a very small gesture, we are sure made her all warm and fuzzy! Plus, how gorgeous is that Nath?

Or convert her jewellery to make something special out of it!

So this bride had quite a cool idea! She wanted one statement piece and that was her mathapatti, which she created out of her grand mother's vintage anklet- isn't that special and very cool?

Wear one of her outfits- maybe something she wore on her own wedding!

This Real Bride wore a 100 + plus year old suit for her mehendi, woven in real gold, that's been passed down generations for years from her mum's side. It was something one of her great (read many greats) grandmother wore on her wedding day!

Or give her a meaningful gift on your wedding- something big or small!

How cute is this idea? Give your granny a nice personalised gift which will make her feel super special!

If you can't wear the same old school outfit, then convert it to something new! This Real Bride's Mehendi outfit was pretty special- it was created using her late grandmother’s Benarasi brocade which she got made into a chic waistcoat and paired it with a bright skirt and a lime green blouse.

Don't forget to click a photo of you, your mom and grandmom, or you , your dad and grandad as a "3 generations in one frame" photo.

This is the bride with her father, but you can do the same with your grandfather too, and both your grandparents can walk you down too- so sweet and special!

Or make your grandma one of your bridesmaids!

Moms are super cool these days, getting involved in the bachelorette and all, so why not your granny especially if she's cool?
