I need some advice. My grandfather of 78 years old is getting married today to a lady that he’s been dating for the last year. I’ve only met her once but my family has been around her more…I live 900 miles away from the rest of my family. That’s the background…
I am getting married in July and I know we’re supposed to list the grandparents, parents, officiant, bridesmaids/groomsmen in the programs. Right now I have:
grandfather of the bride……”__________”
I don’t know if I should add his new wife. I do not want to put it grandparents of the bride because she is not my grandmother but should I include her since she will be walking down the aisle with him? maybe do…
grandfather of the bride….”________ and wife ________”????
What is proper? Thanks in advance for the advice!

Hmmmm…. Maybe try a google search?
We actually didn’t put any “family” in the program
Just us, bm/gm, flower girls/ring beare, our ushers, & officiant
We aren’t having the “seating of the parents” part so we really just suck to those going to be in/down the aisle.
Our parents will all be hosting a table at the reception so our Guests will get to know them all better

We just listed the grandparents. Both of us actually have this situation. You didn’t say if your grandmother is also still alive (ours both are) and we listed the grandmothers first on a separate line. For the grandparents that are deceased, we put a note on the back of the program that said, “In loving memory of ___”
So the grandparents section looked like this:
___________ ….. Grandmother of the bride
___________ ….. Grandfather of the bride
_________ and __________ ….. Grandparents of the bride
___________ …. Grandmother of the groom
___________ …. Grandfather of the groom
In loving memory of _________ and _________. on the back. (His paternal grandparents).
We did still give their wives corsages though, and they were certainly seated with the grandparents, just not recognized in the program. I hope this helps.
