Ok, I can’t read what you wrote because of all the font stuff, but I would just put

 

Together with Their Families

Bride Last Name

and

Groom Last Name

invite you to celebrate their marriage…

 

It will be waaaaay too confusing to do the other I think.

I agree, I would simply use

 Together with their familes

I have a similar issue where my parents are divorced (and dad is remarried) and my FH’s parents are divorced (and mom is remarried) and all 4 parents (along with their spouses) contributed the same amount of money.  My FH and I are very fortunate that our parents are paying and want to acknowledge them on the invitation.  I am to the point where it is my invitation and if I want to acknowledge our parents, I don’t care if the guests think the invitation is too wordy.  That’s my approach though.  I say word the invitation the way you want to. 🙂

I can read it this time, but I still think I’d go with 

Bride

and

Groom

together with their families…

 

I would think that your families would be happy with whatever and aren’t insisting on being named just to show that they’re chipping in or am I wrong? I think it flows better without all the names and will detract from the simple look of an invitation with all the names on it. But, do what feels right to you.

It is too wordy, Bride, Groom, together with their families….OR Bride, Groom together with their families and dear friends….otherwise you might just as well add the accounting of who is paying for what.  There is a limit and anything else looks pretty tacky, an invitation is to INVITE, it is not a financial statement!
