You could always do:

Mr. Brides dad

and

Ms. Brides Mom and Ms. Brides Mom’s GF

along with

Mr and Mrs Groom’s Parents

invite you to join them as their Children

Bride and Groom

are joined in Matrimony

 

Also if you Google wedding invite wording you will come up with a whole bunch of examples. That’s what I did and just pieced together something from a few different places.

Good Luck!

ETA: Here’s a link to the Knot’s invite wording sample page. You can pick whoever you want to be on the invite and it gives you a bunch of options.

A typical invitation includes certain customary elements…… such as………the host line…….request line………… bride and groom line…………. date and time lines…….. location line……..and reception and R.S.V.P. lines………..
Although every invitation should have all these lines………. they can be worded and arranged in so many  ways as you want and choose……The only thing is that you do whatever makes good etiquette sense and makes you feel good………
Generally, only the names of your natural parents go on the invitations….but if you want to include your step parent in it you can have them like this….
Mr. and Mrs.


[bride’s mother and step-mother] and Mr.


[bride’s father] request the honor of your presence….

@Manikmarie:

The first thing to figure out is “Who’s hosting* the wedding?” It falls into place from there.
