My fiance’s dad’s deceased and mom is now a nun, so both will not be at the wedding. How should I word it in our program such that we mention and honor their names?!?
“On this day of happiness, we would like to remember those who cannot be with us”……then what?

Thank you all for sharing this day with us.
We would like to express a special thank you to our family and friends for all of their love and support and a special mention to those who couldnt be here today (insert names) Many people have travelled a great distance to celebrate with us today. We truly appreciate your presence
For all of those who have shaped us and set us on a course that has brought us together,
We thank you.
does this help??? maybe?

I’d be careful about using the wording “those who cannot be with us” because I immediately think that those people must have died, and since his mom is alive, that might create some confusion.
I like ccrane’s suggestion except I’d specify the groom’s mother <name> and the groom’s late father <name>… so no one is confused about who is living or not.

yeah, that’s exactly what i am afraid of since i don’t want people to get the impression that his mom is dead. thanks bees.
