    We paid for our own wedding so we didn’t have to list the parents so I dodged that bullet but I have seen a couple of different ways. Technically who ever is paying is a host and should be mentioned on the invite. As for the inlaws you could always put something like this:

    Mr & Mrs travllers parents invite you to celebrate the marriage of their daughter Traveller to Travellers FI, son of Mr & Mrs travellers FI’s parents.

     For parties after the wedding you can either do a seperate invite or if you are having a STD then direct them to your website and list the extra activities there. We slipped a seperate RSVP card for the extra activities (we hosted a brunch, a meet and greet and 2 tours) in with the invite. The RSVP card included the wedding website details for more information.

    If your parents are paying for the boat trip, then they’re hosting it and the invite should say so. It’s pretty ordinary for the bride’s parents to be the specific hosts of the day-after thing, so it won’t look like anyone is exclusing your FI’s parents names deliberately.

    FI’s parents are divorced and we still put “son of”. They’re still his parents even if they are divorced.

    @traveller:  I would still put son of for a step parent. We refer to DH’s step dad as his dad as he has been there for DH and his brothers equally as much as his bio dad has been. I guess it would only matter if it was a strained relationship 🙂

    I would put son of mum and step dad and dad and step mum (if there is one).
