I would maybe list him under Parents of the Groom.

We were going to list FIs ex stepmother that way, but we werent sure she was coming by the time we printed the programs so we left her out.  In our programs, on the left side is a column heading for parents of the bride and it says StepdadFirstName & MomFirstName TheirLastName.  On Parents of the groom on the right side next to it it says MomFirstName LastName and on the line underneath that DadFirstName lastName. 

We didn’t list his current stepmother… I’m curious to see if we hear complaints about that 😉

Good luck!

Are you trying to give him a title in the program? Why don’t you ask FI’s ex stepdad how he’d like to be titled?  Personally I think stepdad would be ok if he was ok with it.  Or friend would be ok too.

I have the same situation (kind of). Biological dad is still alive but there is zero relationship. Biological grandparents/aunt/uncles are still a part of his life and will be attending the wedding, but the ex-stepfather is who raised him. I didn’t know how to handle it either, but I put Parents of the Groom in the program sample and listed his mom and ex-stepfather separately. Fiance read program and didn’t comment, so I’m basing everything off that.

I can’t see biological extended family saying anything, as they know that biological dad is a $%@&.
