Here's the problem....
My fiancee and I are both wanting to name parents on our invite -- both sets are contributing financially to the wedding.
Background: F's father divorced, with new lady for 20+ years, however not remarried. F's mother has passed away.

how to word? Typically the bride's parents host and wording reflects this .... my parents are alive and together (haleluia), so that's simple, but how to include father, common law step-mom, and honour deceased mom in the invite as well? ARGGGHHHH!

According to, you do not list the deceased parent's name nor the commonlaw wife.

Something like this:
Mr. and Mrs. First Middle Bridesparents
Mr. First Middle Groomsfather
request the honor of your presence
at the marriage of their children
blah blah blah

Hope that helps!

yep because those who have past on can not invite.

And this is the language used. If you do it like everyone else.

And as for common law. There is no such thing in most states now. Since she is not married to him she is not included. You can simply say you were doing blood family if you have to. But they don't file joint taxes I bet, so the gov doesn't even consider them married.

Now, if you really like her and choose to include her you can. put her full name after his Dad's.

I put my mother and father (father first as it is traditional- made mom mad as they are divorced.) and wrote their names out completely. Then went the ex's parents. Doesn't matter who's folks pay what. The brides folks ususally go first. As also father first then mother.
