My FI and I both come from divorced families, so instead of putting oodles and noodles off names on them, just writing “Together with our families…”

I would not have a program in this situation.   It is not obligatory.

LVoeBride:  I did the programs for two daughters, in the last 18 months. One listed parents and grandmothers, the other didn’t. We realized that the one that did had a font that was too small, and the musical prelude for the 2nd wedding was much longer, so we had to cut something out. I’m sure no one really cared as the order of the ceremony and the participants are more important. (BTW, my husband and I hosted 100%. The parents for the 2nd wedding basically just showed-up, so I didn’t feel the need for including them, like I did with the first).
