So I got a question. We’re doing our programs currently and where we would list the groom’s parents, I’m not sure what to do! FMIL has the same last name as FFIL, but they are not married anymore. In fact, they’ve been divorced for about 25 years. Do we list them as (insert fake names): Jessica McGroom and Johnathan McGroom? Whereas my parents (married) are listed as: Anne and James McBride? I don’t want to be awkward and imply they are married since that won’t go over well. Advice? I was thinking about listing them on separate lines also, whereas my parents would be on one line.

Eeeek! That’s a tough one. We didn’t put our parents names on the invitations at all so I’m definitly not an expert on this. But…
I would put their names on separate lines like this:
You & Financee
Along with their parents,
Jack & Jane Smith,
Invite you to join them ……. yada, yada, yada
It shows they are sparate couples even though they have the same last name

I’ve got the same issue – FMIL and FFIL are divorced but have the same last name (as does FFIL’s wife). I was going to list them in the program exactly like you said – with them on their own lines and my folks on one line together.
