Britty, first off I’m very sorry to hear about your mom.  In terms of the wording on your invitation, I think it would certainly be nice to acknowledge her as a "host" even though she won’t be there with you in person, in addition to naming your FIL’s.  Maybe instead of putting the names at the top, you could do something like:

Please join us as

Britty Xcore

daughter of the late Mrs. Britty Xcore


Hubby Xcore

son of Mr. and Mrs. Hubby Xcore

join together in marriage…..

If your names are larger so they stand out, with the parents names smaller, I think that would do the trick.  Or, do just your names at the top with all the details, and then below the wedding details put the parents’ names at the bottom. 

This may or may not help guide you, but also check out VerseIt.com.  Good luck!

All of our parents contributed in some ways, as did my both sets of my grandparents.   Therefore, we worded ours as:


Please join us as



Joshua N. XXXXX

along with their families….


It was easier than listing both of my parents and their spouses, his parents and their spouses, etc.


Really, any wording can be very meaningful, so good luck!

we’re paying for a chunk of the wedding ourselves, his parents are paying for a smaller chunk, and my parents aren’t paying for much…. so to not slight anyone, our invitation says:

"together with their parents

request the honor of your presence…"
