I agree with @SoontobeMrsA:‘s suggestion. Just a thoughtful and kind thank you to your parents without mention of his is clear enough and directs the thanks to those who deserve it. We’re doing the same when it comes to our programs and such, Mr. ND’s parents and NDBee’s mom. People will get it.

I feel like people like that just need to be ignored. If you were to thank them I feel like they’d get more mad and say you were being sarcastic or something. Obviously you’re just trying to be thoughtful (to people who don’t seem to deserve it) but it would make you look a little bad to “thank” people publicly that you won’t even talk to. If they run around all day angry and complaining that they WEREN’T thanked, well then people would understand why you left them out haha

I think that you can thank your parents and just leave them out. It wont even be missed. Im sorry you are having issues with your FIL’s it stinks!! But on the plus side your wedding is so soon!!! 🙂

Personally I wouldnt thank either set of parents on the program, its always going to be weird that you thanked your parents and not his.

Would calling out your parents and not his make matters worse? Will they be there at all? Maybe a generic

To our Parent- Thank you for your love and support through the years

To Bride’s parents- Thank you for your patient guidance, your generosity and helping to create this beautiful and special day in out lives.

As someone who despises my in-laws (they ruined my husband’s credit), I would do what you want and thank only your parents.

We would like to thank everyone involved for your love and support of us.

I think thanking one family over the other is just opening the wound further….
