Thanks for all the advice, ladies... we will see what happens. I am going to tread carefully, and I think I will be skyping it and carrying something of hers. I am also thinking that, maybe, just maybe, she might be able to leave my grandpa for a day or so to come dress shopping with me. If not, I will be taking the advice to to come try my dress on at their home. Hopefully, with me having so much time, everyone will get used to the idea and she won't be too hurt.

Having their photos on your bouquet is a great idea. Another one would be to assign seats for them and put their pictures on those seats during the ceremony. You can also have wedding photographs of the both of you with the seats.

That day absolutely felt like like it had 100% of the meaning and importance.
