I think it depends what you mean by "include." I feel like programs are meant to act as a roadmap for what’s going to happen in the ceremony, and who the people up there in front of everyone are. Your grandparent obviously isn’t going to be standing up there, but if you’ve got a memorial candle or some other such acknowledgement, it would be nice to list it as part of the ceremony order.

Or you could put an acknowledgement next to the "thank you" section, if you’re having one. Like, "In memory of loved ones who are no longer with us, but who will always be in our hearts…" and then list them.

But if you’re asking whether to list "Grandparents of the Bride: X and Y" if they’re deceased, I would say no. If it’s a parent, I think the only acceptable way to list them would be "Bride, daughter of X and the late Y."

our program listed family in this order:

parents

grandparents

siblings

in loving memory – we had flowers in the narthex in honor of those, which included some of our grandparents and other close relatives that passed away.
