Honestly, at a time like this, I would just call him tell him you feel about the recliner, you would love him to come and he should expect an invitation in the mail.

I would run it past your Future Mother-In-Law before inviting him.  If it was a bad break-up, she might not want him there, and she gets priority at her son’s wedding.  If that happens, you can always write the boyfriend a note, thanking him again for the gift, explaining how much he means to you and how you hope he’ll remain part of your lives, but you’re sure he can understand not being able to invite him to the wedding.

Hopefully your Future Mother-In-Law will be okay with him being there though.

I agree – you’ve got to get your FMIL’s okay on this first.

As you do say “With MIL’s blessing” , it is obvious that Mother-In-Law either approves of the invitation or that you plan to get her ok before inviting him.

As far as the invitation and the thank- you  note are concerned, I would send them in separate envelopes. I would also tuck in a little hand written note with the invitation expressing your heartfelt desire that they attend the wedding.
