I don’t know if this is correct as far as traditional etiquette, but I think it sounds fine. I have the invitation from DH’s grandparents wedding somewhere (we have the sae names as them, crazy coincidence!) and I think it says something like that.

Yep, I think that’s a totally normal way of doing it.

You could also try: 

Together with their families,

Bride + Groom

Request the honor of your presence at their wedding

details….

 

If parents want their names specifically mentioned, then the way you mentioned will be perfectly fine.

Mr. and Mrs. MY PARENTS

request the honor of your presence 

at the wedding of their daughter

Samantha Marie

to

Erik Scott LAST NAME

son of Lisa Marie LAST NAME

That is the EXACT wording you should put. Etiquette wise, it is 100% correct.

@samschene221:  You are spot on girl!!  Just curious, is FI’s dad not in the picture? (since he is not on the invite)

This is what I did (my parents are divorced, wanted to include his parents)

 

Ms. Mom Lastname

Mr. and Mrs. Dad Lastname

request the pleasure of your company

at the marriage of their daughter

BRIDE MIDDLE LASTNAME

to

GROOM MIDDLE LASTNAME

son of Mr. and Mrs. Dad Lastname

 

Are you getting married in a church? That’s the only time you should use “honor of your presence”. Does his mom have the same last name as he does? If so you don’t need to put his last name on the invite.
