- Wedding: December 2013
Hello bees! I really want wedding programs. Our ceremony and reception are in one room. On the program besides the listing of people, order of ceremony, and our thank you’s, we are also including a order of reception events and a menu of what will be served. All of this is fine. Our delima is I don’t know if or how we should list my fiance family. When he was 10 his mother and sister passed away. I know I am listing my maid of honor as his sister in memory of her. His grandparents raised him, but they have both passed away within the last could of years. I hate to list everyone as “the late” even though that would be the proper thing to do. But, he does not want people to feel pity for him that all of his family has passed. He also never knew his father. When he turned 18 he met his fathers mother and a couple aunts, but our not close to them. He sees them about once a year at Christmas. We believe they will be at the wedding, but don’t know if they would be offened about not being listed. Any suggestions on how we should go about this whole ordeal?
I know most of the responses will be not to do programs, and that might be what it comes down to! BUT if we did do them, what would you suggest?
