@loveknows: Are your FI’s parents helping to host too? If so, you can definitely use it. If only your father is helping, then it might be a little strange in wording.

I had my mom’s name and the late (fathers name).  I wanted a way to include my father when sending out invitations.  For those on Josh’s side that didn’t know my father passed away, I wanted them to know why he wasn’t there.

I would use it.  Personally, I didn’t like the idea of naming my deceased mother on the invitations but that is a good way to include her on yours.

FH grew up without ever meeting his father.  I had the “together with our parents” line in the invitation and Future Mother-In-Law was not too comfortable with this and asked if that could be changed to “together with our families”.  We did that and I thought it was great and more true to our actual situation.

We decided to use “Together with our families” because his parents, my mom and my siblings gave us generous cash gifts towards the wedding. So it really was our “family”!
