Even though my parents contributed financially to the wedding and his did not, we did:

 

S. E. W.

and 

A. M. K

together with their parents

Mr. and Mrs. T and D W.

and 

Mr. and Mrs. M and S K.

 

For your parents you could just write:

Mrs. A. B. and Mr. C. D.

If you want to include the names, then do so, just as you have written. 

They are your names. Who cares if it is long? 

 

We all have our personal reasons for wanting it to be worded a certain way.  I say go with what you want.  It will be beautiful!

You may want to include your mothers married name after her maiden, only because it reads like they are divorced.

My FMIL also didn’t change her last name, and we are also writing it like you did in your post. I figure anyone we’re inviting is close enough to know that they’re not divorced, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

We are paying for the majority of our wedding, but both sets of parents are also contributing.  We did ours this way, so everyone is mentioned but it doesn’t specify who’s hosting:

The honor of your presence is requested at the marriage ceremony of

Bride’s Name

Daughter of FOB & MOB

to

Groom’s Name

Son of FFIL & FMIL
