Including Names Of Deceased Parents?
Question: My father died a few years ago, and I was wondering how to word my invitations. Do I incude his name as well as my mother's?
Answer: by The Knot
Parents who have passed away are not included by name on invitations. Even though this may seem cold, there’s a logical explanation: The invite is issued by the hosts of the party. But you can and should remember your dad on your wedding day. Have his favourite poem read at the ceremony, play his favourite song, light a candle for him, say a few words about how you wish he were there, or write a tribute for your programme. Any of these (or a combination) is a wonderful gesture.
