Grooms parents not mentioned on invite - now what?

The grooms parents were not mentioned on the invitation - "Groom" son of Mr & Mrs. Grooms parents. This was not intentional - it was just an oversight because the wording template that was in the package said "Mr & Mrs Parents of the bride invite you to attend the marriage of their daughter to Mr. Groom".   Now the grooms mother is upset and making a big deal about it. Sure in hindsight the couple should have asked first but they didn't so now what can be done to smooth things over? Obviously we can't "send out" an ammended invitation so what about toasting both sets of parents at the reception or have an acknowledgment printed  thanking the parents for everything they've done and putting these at each seat at the reception?  I'm thinking of printing up an acknowledgement and putting one at each seat.
