When you are having a large, formal wedding, invitation wording is the same as for a first wedding:

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Jones
request the honour of your presence
at the marriage of their daughter
Ms. Katherine Nicole Nelson
to
Mr. Paul Scott Brown
(etc.)

An older widow or couple that are hosting their own wedding:

The honour of your presence
is requested
at the marriage of
Mrs. John Joseph Smith
to
Mr. Greg James Toll
(etc.)

or

Mrs. John Joseph Smith
and
Mr. Greg James Toll
request the honour of your presence
at their marriage
(etc.)

An independent divorcee:
She may send out her own invitation (she may also drop the title):

The honour of your presence
Is requested
At the marriage of
Mrs. Susan Ann Mason
