It sounds like listing your aunt as the mother of the bride is really important to you but listing your bio mom is just something you “wouldn’t mind”.  Since she has only come into your life recently and you never really had a mother/daughter relationship, do you feel she deserves being listed in the program at all?  It’s great that she will be there is support you on your wedding day but it doesn’t sound to me like she has earned the distinction of being listed on the program.

I don’t know how to word it, but I would definitely honor them both! Since she’s your aunt and not your mother, I wouldn’t call her mother of the bride. Maybe honorary mother of the bride? Maybe mark her name with an asterix and put a special note below commenting on how important to your life she is and much influence she had on you?

 

[EDIT]

I’m not sure how you are doing the layout of your program. But if you are just listing roles on one side and names on the other It could work.

Mother of Bride…………………………………….. Name

Aunt of Bride………………………………………… Name*

*Bride would like to recognize (aunt) for the important role she had in raising her… (or something to that effect)

I think that’s a really good one too. Or maybe something like “Honorary Caretaker”. I like the previous one better. lol.

OR!!!

You don’t do the

Title….Name format.

Instead do:

Name

Short Dedication

Name

Short Dedication
