I’m in the same situation as you, but my mom will be contributing my dress, all of the paper and a few other odds and ends.  I tried a couple of different ways to include both parents, then I felt bad about leaving my stepmother out because she’s helping us a lot.  It started to look like a laundry list so we decided to forgo all of it and just use "Together with their families"

If you’re not including your stepmother, however, you can use both of them for sure. 

"Mr. John Doe and Mrs. Jane Smith request the pleasure of your company at the marriage of their daughter, Bubblybride"

I don’t think you should feel bad about not including stepparents.  My stepmom didn’t expect me at all to include her on the invitation.

You could just say Mr and Mrs John Smith and Ms. Jane Smith (your mother or whatever title shegoes by).  I think you should include your stepmother in the invitation, but this way it doesn’t exactly draw her out.
