I’m getting married this coming June, and we are having my fiance’s brother’s fiance’s children in the wedding (confusing, I know!). She has 3 kids, and the 2 boys will be handing out wedding programs and the girl will be on guestbook duty. Because this is such a weird situation, I’m having a real problem deciding how to word the relationship in the wedding program. Since my fiance’s brother and her are not married, I don’t want to put that they are nephews and a niece of the groom, but friends of the couple sounds weird to me because they are 12, 8, and 5. I know it would probably be smarter to not have them in the wedding at all in case something goes wrong and they don’t end up married (they’ve been engaged for about 3 years, so we’ll see), but we didn’t want to upset anybody. So any help on this situation would be much appreciated!

What about just listing their names and their “duties” so to speak, and not list a relationship at all?

@anjord: since they’re not actively standing up in the wedding, i wouldnt really even have them included in the program.
you could always add a little snippet that says “we’d like to thank groom’s future neice and nephews for doing x at the wedding”
but i think you’d be fine just leaving them off all together… or just list their names without a relation.

Any way of leaving the relationship out? Just listing the names of the children? Or listing them as Mother’s name’s children? If no one knows them, I don’t think knowning the relationship is all that important and anyone that knows them knows the deal.
If you MUST enter the relationships. Future or soon-to-be niece/nephews?
