    It really depends on what works for you and your family.  Talk to you dad.  Does he feel that he and his wife are the “hosts” and should be the ones issuing the invitation?  Would your mom feel hurt if she was left off?  How do you feel about it?  What feels right to you?

    Technically, the hosts issue the invitation.  But that rule isn’t always followed strictly because sometimes family members feel strongly about being included (or not having non-contributing members included).

    Do you have any idea how your family feels about it?

    On the wedding invitations, we’re putting ‘together with our parents’. But on the programs, I’m putting,

    ‘Parents of Bride

    Mrs & Mr Jone (Starting with my biological mom, since she raised me with my stepdad)

            &

    Mr & Mrs Doe ‘(And then having my biological dad named with my step mom)

    As a PP said, I think probably best to discuss with your dad. I included both my mom, and my father & step-mother, but I am close with my mom, and she contributed as well.

    It’s a toughie! I hate that there are so many politics involved with wedding planning 🙂

    I agree with answer, maybe speak with your dad first but it may help avoid drama if you just put “together with their families”
