Sure he has every right to invite his relatives. Technically speaking, no invitation is required to get a B-2 Visa but since such visas are issued at the discretion of consular officers it is better to provide an invitation with documents supporting ties the invitee's with his/her country.
Sure, family weddings are a great reason for relatives to come to the US as visitors. Just keep in mind that your parents are the applicants and will have to show sufficient ties to their home country in order to convince the Consular officer that they will return home at the conclusion of their visit.
I'm sure you have your hands full with planning for the wedding, but this might be a good time to also schedule that in-person, telephone, or Skype consultation to talk about what immigration options may be available to you once you marry even if your future husband is not a US citizen yet (permanent residents are able to sponsor their spouses for green cards right now UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS).
