On the invite only have an RSVP for 2. Father and Wife.

If they want to know if the kids can come then just say there might not be enough space and you will let them know if there is.

I would discuss it with your Father-In-Law. Traditional ettiquette would invite step-siblings. However, there is no law that says you must. So if Father-In-Law and wife are okay/understanding, you may be in the clear to not invite them. If Father-In-Law and wife will be upset, you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons.

They sound like adult sons so they would not be invited along with the parents at this point.  Address the invite to the parents and on the RSVP fill part of it in so it says ___ of 2 attending.  That will make it clear that the sons are not invited.  Quite honestly, if they don’t really know Fiance that much, they won’t care about not being invited.
