OMG! I am shaking so hard right now, I think I am about to have a panic attack.
My FI mother is yet to RSVP.
MY FI father is a hermit. (He does not socialize)
If they aren’t coming to the wedding, am i to mention their names on the program
Example: Mr. Ron
Father of the groom
Mother of the Groom
Time is of the essence, I need to print the programs and I don’t know what to do.
A toast is slated for the groom’s parents, if they are not at the reception, is it still necessary to give this toast?

Your FI needs to call his parents ASAP. It should not be a question at this point whether or not they’re coming.
My 2-cents: Yes, list them in the program whether or not they’re there as Mother and Father of the Groom. No, a toast from the groom’s parents does not need to be done if they don’t attend (how can it be if they’re not there?).
Breathe! Good luck!

Are you sure they aren’t coming? I think its a given they will be there even if they haven
t rsvp. Have your Fi give them a call about their plans. I say plan on including them in the programs or ask your Fi his feelings about this. Since its his parents i feel like it`s his call to make

@Mrs.DBee: His father is definitely not coming. His mother claim she is still trying to book a flight.
A tradition in this country is to do a toast to the parents
