• Acknowledging a Deceased Parent in Your Wedding Program

    Posted on July 15, 2009 by in Wedding Programs

    In this example, the Father of the Bride is deceased and the Mother of the Bride is remarried.  If the mother was deceased instead, you would list her first, above the living father (and step-mother if he was remarried). You can list them under the wedding party section in the following way:

    Parents of the Bride
    Mr. and Mrs. John William Doe
    The Late Mr. Roger Smith

    OR

    You can just list the living parent in the wedding party and put something under the dedication like this:

    Dedication
    On this special day in our lives, we lovingly remember Mr. Roger Smith, Father of the Bride.

    …or something like this..

    The flowers on the altar are placed to the glory of God and in loving memory of Mr. Roger Smith, Father of the Bride.

    …or this…
    The candle in the narthex burns brightly in loving memory of Mr. Roger Smith, Father of the Bride.
