You could include a list in the program but you risk leaving someone out when you start to list a whole host of people. You should do the same for the groomif you are going the list route.

You could just have a short sentance honoring all the people that are not with us, or light one candle. But listing out Aunt Jack, and Cousin Betty might be too much.

I think you may be inviting a lot of drama by honoring family members on your side and not your FI’s. I’d put a sentence or two on the program honoring family members that are no longer with us and leave it at that

You mention all of his grandparents are passed…so how is his situation any different from yours? Just because he has more aunts and uncles? You’re going to create a lot of hurt feelings honoring one set of aunt and uncle and ignoring the rest – putting in a blurb about how they are there in place of your grandparents means nothing when his has passed as well, it will just create drama. I’d say that if you would like to you can do something in memory of both of your grandparents, whether it’s a candle lighting, line in the program, etc. But leave your aunt and uncle out of it.
