Response: Hello Donna, When the grandparents are divorced, you begin with the name of the grandfather and wife, then the grandmother, if she is single, such as: Grandparents of the bride...Mr. and Mrs. John Jones, Mrs. Mary Jones.
If the grandfather is single and grandmother is remarried, you would say: Grandparents of the bride...Mr. John Jones, Mr. and Mrs. James Brown. You do not separate the names of a husband and wife, nor do you draw attention to anyone being a step-grandparent.
However, it would be proper to omit the names of the step-grandparents, particularly if they are a recent addition to the family and the bride or groom doesnt know them well. In such a case you would say: Grandparents of the bride...Mr. John Jones, Mrs. Mary Smith.
