    I am having a hard time wording our invites (and the order needs to be in today). His father is paying for everything and his mom bought my dress. My father passed away 7 years ago and my mother is not contributing to anything. How the heck do I word the invites? I don't want to leave his dad off because then it will insinuate that we are paying...help!

      We had a problem close to this for my sisters wedding. This is what we did

      Emily Louise Krass
      daughter of Doris Albright Krass & the Late William Carl Krass Sr.
      Raymond Allen Martin
      Son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Martin Sr.
      invite you to join them in the celebration............

      Does that make sense? Hopefully this helps! this way nobody was left out!

        Even though my mom is not contributing, do I still put her on there? Also, since his parents are no longer married, so I still put them as Mr. and Mrs.? They are both unmarried. This is confusing. lol.

          That does sound complicated. I think it would be fine to do something similar to what hmk012 (Holly) sugessted but take into consideration the divorce of your FI's parents. Such as "son of Mr. xx and Mrs. yy".

          If you don't want to be so specific, I think it would also be ok to say that both of your families invite your guests to celebrate in your wedding and keep it general.
