The bride's mother issues a verbal invitation and then says formal attire is required? How incongruous. If the event is formal, the invitation should be issued formally!
Has grandpa ever had a DNA test, if this seems to be an issue, maybe mom was wrong? Happens all the time? To raise someone and then say sorry Im not genetically related and since grandma is dead it doesnt matter anymore is ridiculous. Theres something deeper here, if you raised a child as your own, why would you this many years later disenfranchise yourself from the family?
You ARE the Grandpa these children have known all their lives. Don't bow out now, YEARS are more important than sperm.
I wonder, does the daughter know the mothers co-worker is even invited? No invite, no response card to send back? And sorry, but specifically asking for money? Sorry, this has classless written all over it, even if it is a formal gown and tie reception.
