I would think you woudl still want your father listed, even if he has already passed, especially since its doesnt appear that your mother is remarried

i would suggest:

the late father of the bride & mother of the bride


father of the groom & mother of the groom

together with their children

your name

his name

request the honour of your presance of your company



on another note, it reads akwardly because your names are listed with two sets of parents as the hosts.  i know that you’re paying for the wedding yourselves, but i would almost forgo that on the invitation just to make it a bit more understandable and fluid.

You could phrase it  this way….


Miss PBC

daughter of the late FOB and MOB 

and Mr. PBC

son of Mr. and Mrs.  POG

request the honor of your presence with the blessing of their parents at the celebration of their marriage….

Or you could give your mother the honorary post of hosting the wedding…


So that it would read…

Mrs. MOB

requests the honor of your presence at the marriage of

Miss PBC



son of Mr. and Mrs. POG

I think that listing all three names at the beginning may seem a little confusing to some…

I like what MissBliss wrote.  A slight variation could be:

With the blessing of their parents

Miss PBC

daughter of Mrs. MOB and the late Mr. FOB

and Mr. PBC

son of Mr. and Mrs.  POG

request the honour of your presence…


Also, remember that you don’t capitalize “thirtieth” and you can leave off the first “on” in that same line.

I like what missbliss wrote but I would list your mom then “and the late FOB” just because if you say “the late FOB and MOB” it sounds like you mom has passed as well, and you don’t want his family thinking that lol.
