The names confuse me. Olga and Jordan are you and your FI? Is daughter’s name your and FIs daughter and then followed by both your sets of parents? If so, then it makes sense and sounds okay.

I would write “together with” instead of “along with”.

Also, while I think it’s really sweet that you want to acknowledge your FI’s late father, I’m not sure it works with this wording. It comes across like he’s one of the hosts. Just my $.02, I don’t know if I’m the only one who would find that a bit strange.

@tranquility: Normally if your parents are contributing but not hosting, you would put “Together with their families…” or “Together with their parents…”, but that doesn’t really work here because I know including their names (and your daughter’s) is important to you.

I don’t know if it’s up for negotiation, but is there any way you could leave his late father’s name off the invitation but honour him somehow at the wedding itself? There are plenty of bees who have found beautiful ways to do this.
