I wouldn’t classify your dad’s girlfriend as a “parent,” seeing as she technically isn’t one. It’s still nice to thank her though, so how about:

Special thanks to our parents, Mr. Bride’s Dad, Ms. Bride’s Mom, the late Mr. Groom’s Dad, and Mrs. Groom’s Mom, as well as to Ms. Dad’s Girlfriend.

Ziggy2112 :  My DH’s mom is deceased.  We did not include her in the thank you, but right below the thank you we wrote “In Loving Memory of XXXX, Mother of the Groom”

 Ziggy2112 :  I wondered about that when posting– I guess the question is, are you thanking people for financial contributions (in which case lahela017 :  has a nice way to separate it out), or are you doing a general sort of thank you for their influence on your life? If the latter, I think you can thank them all together, but if you’re specifically looking at monetary help (nothing wrong with that!) then I’d thank the people who actually did contribute and then underneath that mention the groom’s dad.

I think its weird to thank a deceased person. I like heyoh :  wording, but without the late.

It’s weird to thank a deceased person. I’d do it the way Heyoh did it! The first three names on the way you wrote it are strangely jumbled together, like its missing a comma.
