My parents and my fiance’s mom are basically paying for wedding. We are paying for all the odds and ends, but they are picking up cost of the venue which includes food, ceremony, DJ, flowers and linens. His parents are divorced and his dad is only buying the alcohol which will amount to about 8-10% of what the other parents are paying. Do we still need to include him in the invitation wording?

I would definitely include them. My fiance’s parents and my mom and us are all sharing the costs. We worded our invitation as follows:
My name and fiance’s name
together with their parents
my mom’s name and fiance’s parents names
request the pleasure of your company
as they celebrate their marriage …
I personally think that’s the best way to go about it. Everyone gets mentioned and everyone’s happy.

I agree, I think you need to include them all on the invitation.
