What about Grandma?

They treked grandma all over the place though! One day they walked from our hotel along the beach to Sayulita, and back!
Is there someone that can stay in the room with her and watch out for her?

when we decided on a DW we pretty much thought that our grandmas would not be able to make the trip to PV. well then FI's grandma booked! his aunt is also going who will help his grandma if needed while we are down there.
then a couple of weeks ago my grandma decided there was no way she would miss it! (She does not travel so it was quite a pleasant suprise to hear that she was going to go) My aunt too is going to help my grandma around at the airport and such.
So now we are just so happy and grateful that both grandmas are going. I just ordered cute tshirts from vistaprint that say "grandma of the groom/bride" I think they will just be so excited when they get down there!

My SIL got a blood clot on the flight home from their honeymoon and it was SCARY!
I think it is important to see how Grandma feels about making the trip and how those around her feel she would do. As well as any health issues that may become a problem. My 87 year old grandfather planned on coming but has recently had more health problems (cancer) and has been very weak and unsteady on his feet so after talking with my mother about his condition we brought it up to him and all decided that it wasn't a good idea for him to go. He is very immunocompromised=can get sick vvery easily and it is not a good idea to be around so many people. Although my 86 year old great aunt is coming who has diabetes and some other health issues and she is flighting down with my mom and staying with her daughter so there will be people around her all the time. She cruised a few years ago with no problems.

I love my grandmother VERY much so I can relate. I'm grateful that my grandmother who is 65 is coming to my wedding.
I hope you figure something out! Don't lose
