Wedding invitations when one parent is deceased

13 years ago

My daughter is getting married next year and her fiance's mother passed away last month. Additionally, his mother and father never married and went their separate ways after he was born. My future son-in-law does not have a close relationship with his father but my daughter and I have been encouraging him to get to know him better to try to build a relationship.

My daughter and her fiance want to set up a table with a picture of his deceased mother along with a floral arrangement at the reception, which I think is a wonderful idea.

My question is, how should the invitation be worded? My husband and I are hosting the wedding but we don't want to create any ill feelings with the father of the groom nor do we want to forget about his deceased mother. Any advice?
