    If you do “son of” and “daughter of” it doesn’t imply they are paying or hosting. If the bride’s parents are hosting you would usually put “Mr. And Mrs. BridesParents request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter…” Or something similar. 

    Whether you their their names on the invite is really a personal preference, but it is possible to put their names on their while not implying that they are hosting. There’s nothing wrong with leaving them off, though

    @JMM13:  I like the option of:

    “Together with their families

    JMM13 and JMM13’s Fiance

    Invite you to celebrate….”

    That way you don’t offend your parents and still keep it a little traditional but don’t have to feel like your parents are giving you away with a dowry and all haha!

    Why not ask your parents how they feel?
