Why not go with

Girl & Guy

Together with their parents

Invite you to their wedding….

This would take out a lot of drama and make your invites less wordy.  I struggled too about how to word the invites – but honestly, do the guests really need to know exactly who paid for what? 

Hope that helps!  Good luck!

I would put your FFILs name on the invite, especially if your Fiance is upset that his name isn’t being included. Having parents names on a invitation is an honor & shouldn’t be a receipt. He is still your FI’s father. 🙂

As for the wording, I’d just put his mom & step dad’s name first!

Mr. & Mrs. Your Parents
Request the honor of your presence
At the marriage of their daughter




Son of Mr. & Mrs. Mother & Step Father
And Mr. Father

Just write Together with their Families

Since his parents are divorced, that takes out a list of names and is vague enough so everyone will feel included.

my fiance’s family is also divorced and both sets of parents are remarried. his dad (and step-dad for that matter) isn’t paying for the wedding either, but his step-mom is contributing her time and efforts to make us our favors (which is super nice of her). we’re going to say what @endsoon suggests.

it just makes it so that i don’t have to write out 500 names on the invitation and nobody asks why “dad” isn’t on the invitation.
