    I voted for option 1. Use of “and” implies a married couple.

    Also, for all of them, I think it should be “request” (because there is more than one host) instead of requests 🙂

    Option 1 is the only one that does not imply marriage, but change to “request”

    According to Emily Post (my guru on invite etiquette), #1 is correct.

    You could also do:

    Ms. Brides Mom
    Mr. Brides Dad
    request…
    marriage of their daughter…
    Bride to
    Groom
    son of
    Doctor Groom Mom
    Doctor Groom Dad

    My parents are divorced, both families are contributing, and that’s the format I’m going with. It just feels heavy having so many names in a row.

    You shouldn’t have an “and” anywhere near the divorced parents name, apparently-

    originally I had:
    Bride Mom and
    Bride Dad

    but the “and” might supposedly “confuse” people.

    @August252012:  I like her suggestion too. The problem that your FMIL may have is that it doesn’t imply that the grooms parents are co-hosting the event. Instead, it implies that only the bride’s parents are.
