@loveinthelibrary:   These are the options I found online:

1.When the groom’s parents are divorced, and would still like to be included on the invitation: Mr. and Mrs. David Callahan / request the honor of your presence / at the marriage of their daughter / Sara Claire / to / Justin Winfield Pierce / son of/ Mrs. Rosemarie Pierce Beecher / and / Mr.  Parker Stephen Pierce….

2.Mr. and Mrs. Bride’s parents

request the honour of your presence

at the marriage of their daugher




son of

Ms. Groom’s Mom
Mr. Groom’s Dad


3.When a groom’s parents are divorced and are being included on the wedding invitation, the proper way to word the invitations is to list the groom’s mother’s name on the first line and the father’s name on the line beneath it. The names are not separated by the word “and” as this may imply they are still married, it also takes away from the visual precedence the Bride and Groom’s names should have on the wedding invitation.
