      Most of the weddings I've been do usually do list the parent who passed.
      I think something appropraite would the "the late Jane Doe" or even listing their name and putting RIP after.

        Does your FI have an opinion on it? I will be putting "the late" in front of my Daddy's name in our programs, under "Bride's Parents". I would think the small number of guests that we will all have at our DWs would know if a parent is deceased, so you don't necessarily have to indicate that in your programs if you don't want to. Best of luck. Your wedding's less than a month away! Yea!

            What about putting the fathers name and then under it put "In loving memory of..(mom's name).." so you include her. I think RIP looks a little morbid after the name, but "the late" is a good choice too.

              Hope this helps:)

                  i don't think there is a protocol. it is whatever you two find fitting. I have seen it mentioned in the program with and without saying they have passed. I have seen photos of them at the table, candles in an etched glass holder with their name on there, place settings for the ones passed, you name it.

                  whatever you do to remember her will be much appreciated i am sure :)
