She taught you strength and love. She taught you how to make the BEST chicken noodle soup on the planet. She taught you how to wear red lipstick. She bought you that pair of jeans when your parents told you no because they couldn’t afford it. You are fierce because of her.

She is your Grandma.

Now that you’re getting married, you appreciate her love and support more than ever. If you are blessed enough to have your grandma or grandpa at your wedding, you should honor that!

You’ve probably already picked the songs for the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance, but here are some of our favorite wedding songs for grandma (and grandpa!).
