Another vote for I have never seen parents introduced at a reception. All of the stress it is causing you is even more reason to skip it.

I usually see parents introduced at weddings or, at the very least, listed on the program. That said, I wouldn’t find it odd if the parents were not introduced, or if multiple sets of parents were introduced.

At my niece’s wedding a year ago it was kind of easy. The groom’s parents are still together, and the Bride’s father is dead, her mother has no boyfriend. They had her grandmother escorted by her son, and my SIL the brides mother,  escorted by her son and grandsons. 

Do whatever you want. They can be introduced in any fashion, doesn’t have to be a romantic or social partner. You don’t have to have a relationship announced, it can just be “the bride’s mother, Betty Pringle, escorted by John Finster.”

I didn’t read the replies, sorry. 

I would personally tell them all to suck it up and send down mom, dad, step mom and step dad. All together. Those are the 4 that raised you, those are the only 4 that get introductions. They can get along for 5 minutes. They’re adults
