My condolences to your fiance. And to you.

I would think that it would be in Memorium because it is in memory of.

My cousins got married in May and one of their groomsmen died tragically of a heart attack or something (it was never quite said) ONE WEEK before their wedding. It was sooo hard on them and their friends plus they had to re-arrange the ceremony with that pain lingering. I just searched for their program but can’t find it in my mess of a craft table. I believe they took his name out of where they listed the others because they had them listed as “so and so accompanied by so and so…” the way they were escorted into the ceremony. Underneath they wrote something about the HUGE bouquet of flowers they had right to the side of the alter were in loving memory of their groomsman/best friend and that he will always be in their hearts.

my thoughts are with you both.

I just looked it up and honorariam is a fee paid for professional services

And in memoriam; in memory of, as a memorial to: used in obituaries, epitaphs, etc.

So I think in memoriam would be more appropriate.

This post is helpful because my Fiance mother died of cancer about a year ago and we wanted to include her in either the invitation or the ceremony program. Most likely the ceremony program. So it’s in Memoriam???
