Kay143:  I think it is very nice to list them in the program.  We are going to have a memorial chair.  It will have a saying and pictures of everyone who isn’t able to be with us.

I’m doing a tri folded sheet of 8.5×11 paper for our programs, and on the back page we are listing our relatives that we want to honour. Very similar to Mrs Squid’s layout. 

Something like 

In Loving Memory

We want to honour those who are dear to our hearts who are no longer with us. We know that they are present in spirit. 

List of names and relation to us.

Kay143:  I’m sorry for the loss of your friend.  I think you could just list the friend and not his dad, but if you do list his dad I would list the bridesmaid’s dad as well.

You may also want to consider asking the mom and brother if they would like them included, or if that would upset them since the pain will still be pretty raw.

Kay143:  First and foremost I am truly sorry for you and your Fiance losses.

1. I think it is absolutely loving of you to want to list your losses on the program. However, I do feel that the only appropriate one is FI’s dad. Guests might feel overwhelmed with the sense of loss. You want them HAPPY!

2. Create a memory table/board with a sign that has a sweet saying. Along with the sign have photos of your loved ones that can only watch from Heaven. Include your friend here along with his dad and BMs dad and other family members.Ask other family members to bring photos to include those that may have been forgotten about like your grandmother’s mother and father. This depends on how much you want to do. 

This will allow you and your guests to honor your loved ones without feeling like their at a funeral.
