Who is paying is really more about the invitations since that says who is hosting the event.  I really think you should try to include your parents in the program, they rasied you so they deserve some recognition.  For our wedding party we did two columns in order to take up less space.. is that a possibility?

Yep I did and I had to squeeze them on to. Um do you think it would upset them not to be on the program?

Keep the parentals, but maybe use columns or something.. find a way!

Mine is as follows:

Parents of the Bride
Mom’s name
Dad’s name

Parent’s of the Groom

We included grandmother, maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids & groomsmen & their relation to the bride and groom (ie Maid of Honor – xxxx, sister of the bride)

Just remember, you can make the font pretty small on the programs!

I agree that its worth the extra effort to recognize your parents in your program. (We had space issues too, with our huge bridal party, so I totally get your question!) We ended up recognizing our living grandparents that will be attending the wedding, as well.

Yep I’d keep the parents in the program as well. They’re an important part of your lives and wedding day.

I believe the program is supposed to be about who is in the wedding party and I always thought the parents were automatically in the wedding party. I agree, it’s not about whether or not they paid for the wedding – that kind of recognition is in the invites. Good luck!
