    Good question.  I don’t have any grandparents living and Fiance has two grandmothers living.  Only one of his grandmothers will be at the wedding but we intend to put the living grandparents on the program (both of them, even though one isn’t attending).

    As far as his father, since he is his father, maybe you could list him as “The late Mr. John Smith” so that it’s understood he’s deceased.

    We’re having a generic “in memory of” section since pretty much all my grandparents are deceased and the list would go on and on.  How many people are you having in that section?

    I don’t know.  But I would do whatever makes your FH happy when it comes to this.  There are always going to be people who will be unhappy about how you do something or other, but he’s the only one you’re going to have live with afterwards.
