@krissybee24:  I asked my FI for advice, since he has a somewhat similar situation. He says “Family of the Bride” is fine, and you could always change the grooms to “Family of the Groom” if you want them to match. He would even put “Parents” if you feel your grandmother had a parental role in raising you as well.

@krissybee24:  I like Family of the Bride. 🙂  I also like that your mom and grandma are walking you down the isle!  How special!!

@krissybee24:  My father passed away so when I was doing the programs I put Mother of the Bride, and I think its perfectly acceptable to put family of the bride

this is what I would do in your situation

Family of the Bride…….Ann Smith Mother of the Bride

                                  Jane Smith Grandmother of the Bride

my father is deceased, he was listed in the Memorial section of our program.

I wrote in our program:

[Bride Name] will be escorted to the chuppah by her mother [MOB Name]

(it was a jewish wedding)

I know yours is a template.  Is there where you are listing all family members or just those who are walking you down the ailse?  I would say family of bride is fine.
