I am starting to look into different designs and things for invitations and would like to find out some things. I don’t know if it matters but we are having a pretty laid back wedding.
I want to try to have all the parents on the invitation and was thinking about this set up…
daughter of blah blah and blah blah
son of blah blah and the late blah blah.
Is this outdated or too formal of a design?
Also, My mother and father are divorced. My mom is now a lesbian and with a wonderful woman. I want to acknowledge her as one of my parents. How do I add her name?

You could always do:
Mr. Brides dad
Ms. Brides Mom and Ms. Brides Mom’s GF
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.
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….

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