We are not putting a section for honoring the parents in our programs. We are paying for everything ourselves, so we don’t think it is necessary. My youngest son is walking me down the aisle and I am putting him in with the wedding party in the program.

My daughter is walking me down the aisle and I’m including her with the bridal party as “Bride’s Escort”  I think listing your uncle in a similar fashion would work.

There are no requirements for programs, do them however you feel comfortable! I would maybe consider putting something like this:

Mary Mama, mother of the bride, escorted by Brian Brother, brother of the bride

Escorting the bride is Stephen Uncle, uncle of the bride

The couple would also like to honor Fred Father, father of the bride

Ignoring the silly nicknames, you can still point out everyone’s roles without creating awkwardness by leaving someone out or “honoring” someone who wasn’t a huge influence on your life or supporter of your relationship.

I think @kirabee has got the right idea – list your uncle as the bridal escort, and list your father as a parent. Everyone will have recognition that way.
