My son is walking me down the aisle. Fiance does not have any children and so we both want to make sure my son is acknowledged and part of the ceremony. We are not doing a family candle or family vows.
How should I list him in the program? I was simply going to list him seperately as “Son of Bride” but then I saw an example that would list him as “Bride’s Escort”. Which do you think is best?
My father is going to be at the wedding and listed as “bride’s parents” but not walking me down the aisle.

If everyone at the wedding will know he is your son, you could go with “bride’s escort”. but if people attending aren’t familiar with your family, I would say “son of bride”, so that people know who he is. Of course, most people will probably be able to guess the relation, but I think its important for people to know “who is who” in the wedding.

I would use both! You typically see in programs the positions/roles within the wedding, the person holding that role, and their relation to the bride/groom. So it would look something like this (obviously matched to the format of the rest of your program):
First Last – Son of Bride

All good ideas. I guess everyone will pretty much know that he is my son. LOL I think Bride’s Escort will actually make him feel important (he is 12). Since we are not listing relationship of others in the wedding party, I may simply list him as “Bride’s Escort”

I really like Future’s suggestion. I have a son who will be 22 months at the time of our wedding and is walking down with my Fiance (his father).
I’ve also seen it done:
Son & Escort of Bride: John Doe
