Is this too weird for our invitations?

@jbbs1222:  Traditionally, I believe, whomever hosted the wedding was the one that did the inviting, so if your mother, your sister, and your FI’s parents are contributing financially aka hosting, then I don’t see why you can’t put all their names, though,  I would leave out “sister” “mother” etc

Maybe instead…”Jennifer’s mother and sister, Donna and Amanda Bradford, together with Brian’s parents, Darlene and Gorden Slupianowski (Is that really his name??), invite you”

Who is hosting? Is your sister hosting? In this case I might just go with a “together with their parents” if everyone but your sister is contributing. If she is, I would just list names, no relationships, or even better, “together with their families”.

I would personally say “Together with their families” if you want to honor them in this way, especially if you’re paying for the whole thing yourself. It’s simpler and cleaner looking and covers everyone

sounds like a lot on an invite. Is this invite to the ceremony/ wedding reception?

wedding invitations aren’t supposed to be a “who’s who” of the family.

I wouldn’t do it seems a litte strange especially since she isn’t even hosting it.

If you want to list your parents names, I would use the following:

Together with Mrs. Donna Bradford and Mr. & Mrs. Gordon Slupianowski

Jennifer Bradford
Brian Slupianowski

invite you to….

If it’s centered then it should look nicer.  You could also break up the “Together with…” section into multiple lines.  (That is what we did!  And our invitations were actually right-justified due to the nature of the design.)

We did ours, “Together with their families, Chercee & Fiance invite you…blah blah blah.” Rather than worrying specifically about who was paying for what, and so on, we considered the “love and support” outside of the finances and do it that way. We truly ARE doing this together with our families, so that’s the way we wrote it.
