I need some input. I lost my father 3 years ago but would like to include him on the invitation. My mom and I were thinking that it should say Mrs. dads first and last instead of Mr. & Mrs. First and Last.
Example (not real name): Mrs. John Smith requests the honor…
We don’t want to write “late” or “in memory of”
What do you guys think? Does it sound weird? We are having a small destination wedding so it’s all close family and friends.

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
Well I googled, and the Knot says not to include the parent because the invite mentions the hosts only… but lots of people commented disagreeing. The comments and a few other websites I visited said to put
“daughter of Mrs. BrideAtSea’s Mom and the late Mr. BrideAtSea’s dad”
I wouldn’t mention “in memory of” you could do something to mention him like that at the ceremony or reception.
Sorry for your loss, By The Way <3

@BrideAtSea: This does not sound wierd at all. It is the proper and respectful way for a widow to issue an invitation on behalf of both herself and her deceased husband.
