If I were in your situation, I would say “Together with their parents…” or “Together with their families…”. Otherwise, it’ll get very wordy and cramped.

My sister in law had this problem about 8 years ago, only it was her father that had remarried.  Her invites went like this:

Mr and Mrs. Bride’s parents and

Ms. Bride’s mother    

along with

Mr. and Mrs. Grooms parents invite you to

celebrate the marriage of their children,

Personally I would go with “Together with thier families or together with thier parents” unless one parent is really insistant on the actual names being included.

Could you do it this way? That way your parents are doing the inviting, but your FI’s parents are still included on the invite?

 

Mr. and Mrs. Bride’s Parents

request the pleasure of your company

at the marriage of their daughter

Bride

to

Groom

Son of Groom’s Dad

and Groom’s Stepdad and Mom

@Gemstone:  I second this. Would have been good for me. The way I tried to fit all 4 parents on there was waaay too wordy.

@honie309:  Great! I’m glad that helps. That’s how we did ours, where my parents did the inviting, but I definitely wanted to recognize my awesome in-laws, as well. 🙂
