@skylar1224:  No it just includes everyone. My parents are divorced (even though my dad paid for all of the wedding) we used that wording to include my mom, dad, and his parents.

How does he feel about how you put his mother’s name on there? I think the best thing is to go with your parents on the hosting line and to put his as you have with “the late.” Since you won’t be sending the invitations until late April, the death will not be quite as fresh by actual invitation time.

@skylar1224:  I definitely think your parents should go on the host line, no doubt. Your mom may think that “the late” is not tasteful, but it’s actually the correct way according to standard etiquette to include the departed parent on the invitation if you really want to name the person–the rules get trickier when the deceased is a parent of the bride, but that’s not your problem here.

Because your parents are hosting, the following is appropriate.

Mr. & Mrs. X request the honour of your presence (or pleasure of your company) at the wedding of their daughter

K

to

D,

son of Mr. Y and the late Mrs. Y
