You don’t have to list them at all, if you don’t want to; however, if they are paying for any or all of the wedding, you should list them as Mr. and Mrs. If your FI’s parents and your dad and his wife are helping you pay for the wedding, you can write: “Together With Their Parents, Johnny and Sally invite you…”.

You can do something like this:


Mr. and Mrs. Smith request the honor of your presence at the marriage of HIS daughter…

I’m doing something similar since my father passed away and my mother remarried after I’d graduated college, so I wanted to differentiate that he is not real father, so I’m doing “at the marriage of HER daughter”

@llfeathe: You could always do

Together with their families

and just leave parents out of it

I would do: Mr & Mrs Smith request the honor of your presence at the marriage of HIS daughter to John Jones, son of Mr & Mrs. Jones

Did a similar search a while back, for my guy’s mother is deceased and his father is remarried (although we’re paying for the wedding and I don’t think we’re mentioning our folks on our invitations.)

Hope this helps.
