There are many variations depending on if the bride’s parents are paying for the wedding and you want to indicate they are the hosts; or, both sets of parents are hosting, or, the bride and groom are paying and want to indicate who the parents are.

Is the groom’s mother remarried?

I wouldn’t include the girlfriend.

I would word it like this if the bride’s parents are hosting the wedding and the groom’s mother is remarried:

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Allen Brooks
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Melissa Ann
to
William James Russo
son of
Mrs. Joanne Ruth Wilson (Joanne Ruth Russo if not remarried)
and
Mr. Anthony Thomas Russo

etc etc etc

I’ve always seen it as the above post. Remarried or not, only the grooms parents current legal name is listed, not the new spouses etc.

My dad is remarried and this is how I did mine.

Mr. John Smith & Ms. Barbara Smith request the honour of your presence….

We are doing “Together with their parents” and I know some people do “Together with their families”

 

My parents are divorced and dad is remarried so I didnt want it to be complicated!
