I like the idea of just saying “along with their families”

My FI and I are paying for our wedding so we didn’t even bother putting our parents names, but I think if you put along with their families it includes everybody without having to worry about having your stepdads name on their when you don’t want it!

@AnaA:  We put both parents’ names even though my parents paid, so I don’t think it matters who pays. In your case, I think “along with their families” is a great way to word it.

I think that “togethor with their families” is not always fair, espeically to mother of the bride.

As long as no family is “formally” paying/hosting then yes you can just do “together with their familiy”. You could also say daughter or Dad and Mom.
