The rule for wording for wedding invitations is that parents who have passed away are not included by name on invitations. It may seem a little harsh, but there is a good explanation---the invitation is issued by the hosts of the party. So if your father is hosting the wedding, his name should be on the invitation; if you and your fiance are hosting the wedding, your names should be on the invitation. The purpose of the invitation is not to let everyone know the names of your parents, but to let people know who is hosting the event.
