On almost every single wedding program I’ve seen, the parents of the bride and parents of the groom are listed. Well, both of my parents are deceased and both of my fiance’s parents are alive. Would it look weird to just list his parents? Should I just skip listing any of the parents? Should I just say “screw it” and elope, because wedding planning is stressful? WWTHD? (What would the hive do?)

I would just list his parents as parents of the groom in the parents section. For your parents, I’m going to steal an idea from a friend. At the end of the program say “The ceremony flower arrangements are in loving memory of Blue and Green Herring, the late parents of the bride”

Although I think this is totally one of those things that is up to the couple themselves… you could possible list them on the program like this:
Parents of the Bride: The Late Mr. & Mrs. BrideDadName LastName
Parents of the Groom: Mr. & Mrs. GroomDadName LastName

I second VagabondGurl! Exactly what I would recommend!

VagabondGurl’s idea is what I was going to say 🙂

I third @VagabondGurl.
This seems to be the best way to include your parents names in the same place as your fiance’s parents, while also making it clear that your parents are deceased. You can also still include them in the “In Memory of…” section of course.

I’ll just echo my agreement with VagabondGurl. I also like the idea of some kind of memorial section.
