Parental Control? : Who issues wedding invitations?

Q. Is it proper for the grooms parents to issue the wedding invitation? If so, how would you word it?

A. When the bride’s family lives far away and she is alone, the groom’s parents may give the wedding and issue the invitations.  This is also true if the bride’s family disapproves of the wedding and refuses to take part in it.
