    Did anyone have their grandparents attend their ceremony in Cabo? I'm getting married at Dreams in October and haven't talked to my grandma about it yet. My FI will be paying her way so finances aren't a concern. (she's on a fixed income) but when I ask her, I want to have an idea of things for her to do.. obviously drinking at the pool bar is out! :)

    She's from WI so not sure how she'll enjoy the 90 degree weather.
    She's my very favorite person in the world and want her very much to be there, but don't want her to be uncomfortable.

    any suggestions?

      I don't think she will be uncomfortable at your wedding., I think she'd love to go.. just tell her this:

        Thanks Guys. I don't know why I'm so nervous even to ask.. I REALLY want her to be there, but I don't want her to feel pressured.. she's from a really small town..in fact the only time she's flown was to visit me in CA. She had a great time here.. No other "older folks" invited in our party. Who knows, maybe Grandma will get lucky in paradise! Ew.. can't believe I just thought that.

          Both of my 89 year old grandmas came. We couldn't get one of them out of the pool! They both had a great time and loved talking to all the guests (they don't get to be around a lot of people very often). One of my grandmas (the one in the pool - she's a firecracker) even got up and gave a toast.

            Definitely invite your grandma!! I really want my g-ma there cuz I know she would have a fantastic time meeting people & socializing. I'm sad that she probably won't make it, but I'm inviting her.

              Angela,

              Would you be willing to let her bring a friend? This may make her feel more comfortable so that she won't feel like an outsider around so many young people. I'm sure if she brought a friend they would enjoy themselves. You would be surprised, most older people enjoy getting out and enjoying life! Defenitly ask her. Even if she can't come she will be pleased that you asked her.

              -Glenda
