Hello fellow bee’s…
I’m having a bit of a problem…
My fiancee and I are having a short but sweet ceremony and only listing parent’s names on the program. My father passed away two years ago, and I want to know-is there another way of listing a "late" relative instead of listing them as "late"?
I wanted to say the late Mr. Nette’s dad and Nette’s stepmother
But-that makes it sound like my stepmothers passed away too.

My father is decesased also and my mom and step father are hosting my wedding. What I just did is listed it as Sandy Fontaine and Carl Meeks, parents of the groom and then at the end of the program I just wrote a short paragraph saying I wanted to remember my father would couldnt be here with us today but is there in spirit.

To prevent the possible confusion about your stepmother, you could do what i will probably do – word it like this:
Nette, daughter of Nette’s stepmom and the late Nette’s dad
It would still list him as "late" which I’m not sure if that fixes the "upbeat" part. If you come up with a different, more upbeat way to say it, I’d love to hear it. I’ll be reading the responses!

hmm thats a toughie.
We’re reserving seats in memory of our passed loved ones with signs that read "Seat reserved in memory of.." and placing a flower at each seat.

Maybe you could list it
Mr. Nette’s Mom and Mr. Nette’s dad (who is with us in spirit)
Mr. Nette’s Mom and the loving memory of Mr. Nette’s Dad
