    I know I'm many years off but I'm interested to see how my generation would handle this, as the only other people would be my parents. My gran died a few months ago, leaving me with only my mothers dad and mum. However, that grandmother has severe dementia and has zero clue as to who, and I believe, my mum is. So, when it would come to a wedding (my wedding) would I invite my grandfather and grandmother, causing her to possibly have a panic attack and be confused the whole way through, invite just my grandfather which would cause untold problems, or just invite neither which is something that would break my heart. FYI people like my grandmother (due to their dementia) are very vulnerable, so being at a big gathering being clueless as to what is going on could make her panic, which is something I wouldn't want. Personally, just for the record, I see it that I only have one grandparent left, my grandfather.

    What a sad situation. Knowing that it would make your grandmother's situation worse, I wouldn't invite her. As for your Granddad, I think you need to talk to him.
