@shannonh32:  Would it be easier to say The Families of instead of Mr &Mrs? I know what you have is traditional but nowadays it is so difficult with all the different family circumstances.

Mr and Mrs John Smith (your parents)
Request the Honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Louise Anne (thats you)
Michael Peter Jones (your FI)
Son of Mrs Julie Patterson (FIs mother) and Mr Gregory Jones (FIs father)

(Mother goes first, don’t know why).  If they’re not contributing just include blood parents.  If His mother is married (couldn’t quite work it out)  then you should put Mrs Henry Patterson, if she’s divorced use her first name like I wrote. Use Ms if she prefers.

Are they helping to throw the wedding?  I think typically you leave his parents off the invitation.

@shannonh32:  Is his mother currently married? If not, I would do it the way

ladyartichoke  suggested, but put the mother and father on separate lines; otherwise it looks like they’re a couple.

I would put both of their full names in, then. If they have different last names and aren’t listed as Mr. and Mrs. then it should be pretty obvious whatthe situation is.
