i think it is ok, or you can write “together with our/their families” (depending on if you want a 1st or 3rd person wording), but either way i’d run it by your parents first to make sure they won’t be offended, since it’s bucking tradition a bit. i’d like to write “together with our families” but i’m going to ask my parents how they feel about it before making that decision since they are primarily paying for the wedding.

I would talk to your parents. My parents are paying & FH’s mom gave us some $ but neither of them wanted to be on the invites.

My parents are paying for the wedding while my fiance’s parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner.  we put: 

My parents request the honor of your presence at the wedding of their daughter Chibride1204

to

Mr. chibride1204

son of groom’s parents names.

That is the proper way to honor his parents but still be clear that YOUR parents are hosting.
